Contact Search Broken

Postby CMBail » Mon Feb 04, 2013 11:08 pm

To find Edward Fieldstone on my iPhone, I can type any of "ed fie", "edw fi", "edward", or "fieldstone".

However, on Waze, *none* of the above work. I need to type the full name "Edward Fieldstone". This is cumbersome. And forcing so much text entry is particularly onerous when the phone is mounted on the windshield.
