...Can't search contacts on iOS 5.1.1

The same for me. I want the old feature back! Please - of course :)


Works fine on iOS 6.0.1. It must be something to do with iOS 6 privacy permissions which got a significant overhaul.

It is possible that in order for it to work under iOS 6 it cannot under previous versions of iOS. I guess only Waze (or maybe another developer) can answer that.

We're currently checking this issue. I'll appreciate if you elaborate on the saying "can't search contact". What do you mean by that?

To visit a contact on waze 355 with an iPad1/iOs511
Tap navigate menu icon (or right slide from main screen)
then type name contact ( first , last or both ; tried each)
And hit search button

And waze never return any of my contact ( all set with valid address)

On an iPhone 4 /ios601 I always get the searched contact

---- Look silly that's iOs fault

Next up, about 20.45 (GMT) navigating home I was nearly home and waze asked if I was going home 3 times. Not sure what gives there. Image

Also got told I couldn't do petrol prices as I am a baby, don't think so...

We are aware of the problems with contact searching and working on fixing them. So far we've detected that waze doesn't return contact results on iOS that's lower than 6 and returns results partially on iOS 6.0.1 and up. If you have information that confirms or contradicts this, please share.

I can confirm that on an iPhone 4S running iOS 6.0.1, I get some returns on some searches.

I can get some results on 6.0.1, but sometimes, those search results have no match to the name being searched for.

Please send me (debug) logs that contains an example.

Not sure why logs are required. This is reproducable 100% of the time and I explained in detail already that Waze gives the "500ft" notification as soon as the distance to the turn goes from .2 to .1 miles. The problem is not enough significant digits or rounding, because the announcement is made at .19 miles, which is 1000ft feet, not 500ft.

In any case logs uploaded at 4:30PM GMT on 2013-01-29. I noted it specifically at (local times) on 2013-01-28 at 5:59PM, 6:05PM, 6:30PM, 6:31PM. However, as noted, it happens without fail, every single time a .1 miles notification comes up at the .19 mile mark.

This morning I was on my way to work, following one of the normal routes. When stopped at a stop light, I received an "Oh, snap!" message without any interaction with the phone.

Problems here:
1. This is a very large popup
2. Despite being an oversized popup and on an iPhone 5, the text still doesn't fit on the screen due to overuse of whitespace and graphics and buttons too large. (How many years do we need to keep harping on about poor use of screen space?)
3. I don't understand "Info" and "Go there" because there's no indication what this popup is about. Why would I "Go there"?

This looks to be from a popup advertisement which failed to get information. As we've mentioned dozens of times before, Waze needs significantly better error handling and needs to stop assuming that nothing will ever go wrong with other parts of the system. This is an example of a popup which should never have come up on the screen in the first place.

I noticed this error today. Traffic alerts generated by Waze (and not reported by the user) seem to be grabbing the wrong road name when Waze automatically reports. The first screen capture shows the traffic jam on Highbury Road, however it is reported as Cumming Street, which is a side street off Highbury Road. The second screen capture shows where Cumming Street is in relation to Highbury Road.
