You should be able to see each other, but the other Wazers who show on the map are not shown in real time. It's delayed by a couple of minutes to protect privacy. That makes it impossible to pinpoint what car the other Wazer on the map is in.
If you zoomed out, you'd probably find your friend trailing a mile or two behind.
The screen will only show so many Wazers at one time, so what you see on each screen may be different depending on how many there are in the area.
