Re: unable to get waze to search iphone contacts

Hi,
I have an iPhone 4S, running ios v 6.1.2. Privacy settings allow Waze to access my contacts. I have turned off/on my iPhone and re-installed it trying to get the problem gone.
What I am facing is that Waze finds some of the contacts but not all. So sometimes it finds a person I am trying to drive to its home, sometimes other person does not show up in the list. This really seems a bug because... for instance, if I search for Luiz in my address book I find 29 names. If I type "Luiz" on Waze and select contacts, waze finds only 12... and the Luiz I really am looking for is not in the list and yes... it has a valid street address on it.
I've been facing this for a while, but before, it was possible from waze to navigate in the address book and pick the right contact I wanted to drive to but in recent two versions or so, the only way to get a name is by searching it.
Anyone else having this behavior? It's consistent and replicable for me.

Thanks.
Carlos, a waze fan, just trying to make it better.

Did you just do the iOS 6 update? Did it work before that?

1- try to power phone off, and then back on. Did my update and iTunes wasn't working right. I powered off, turned back on and hooked up to my computer. After that it was fine.

2- if that doesn't work, may need to do a hard reset of phone or uninstall and reinstall Waze.

EDIT: (Simulpost) Nice picture, d.

Go to Navigate, enter the name (or partial name) of a contact and hit enter/return (whatever it is), swipe to the contacts results. Covered in the user manual. http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/How_to_Navigate

The same problem here. To Waze, all of my contacts are blank. Any help? It is an iPhone 4s with IOS 6.
