I installed on my Fairphone 2 the free OS without trouble according to the instructions found on the web. All works fine and it is marvellous. But I would like to use the Waze application. I succeed to install it (I downloaded the apk file from www.apkmirror.com), I succeed to install it on the Fairphone, but when I launch the application I don’t see the map. Is someone can tell me if it is possible to use Waze with the Fairphone 2 Open OS ?
Thank you very much
Which map is Waze using? I could imagine it is using integrated calls to Google Maps through Google Framework. If so, maybe it could help to install either Open GApps or Microg. But it is just a rough guess as I’ve no idea, how Waze works.
Sadly Waze is a google company since about 1 or 2 years. So I guess it behaves like Amber mentioned.
Ursprünglich von dem israelischen Start-Up Waze Mobile entwickelt, ging das Unternehmen im Jahr 2013 in den Besitz von Google über.
Thank you very much for your answer. You gave me the idea to install Goggle Maps and it works very well so I decided to use it instead of Waze.
I got exactly the same problem. The funny thing is that just removing and reinstalling Waze (I use Yalp Store to install it) makes Waze working again, i.e. I can see the map. But after a while (sometimes a few weeks, sometimes less), maps suddenly disappear again…
However, I don’t have any google service installed on Open OS…
So I am quite lost about which cartography service Waze is using…
