Lots of wazers don't appear, on purpose, mostly for app performs reasons. The most you'll see at any time around you 40 or some similar number. There's no way currently to see all your friends + others specifically.

Doesn't help. I tried that several times without any success :(
I also tried to switch off Waze completely and restarting it but still no friends on Waze.

I've had the client several times tell me that my brother (who's a facebook friend) is currently driving. Well I've looked all along his commute between work and home and he doesn't show up. Other Waze users appear but not my brother!

I'm in the UK (not near London). There simply aren't enough Wazers here (outside of London) to show 40 users at once! I can zoom out to show the 20 mile drive home in the busy home time rush, there might be 5 to 10 Wazers shown on screen, but not my brother!

I've just tested it, mid-afternoon, zoomed out in landscape mode to show 30+ miles from left to right, there are only 5 wazers shown. This isn't a middle of no-where place, this includes the "busy" motorway between Portsmouth and Southampton which are both reasonably large cities.

What should help is disconnect and re-connect.
