Search super slow

Postby jkogan01 » Tue Jul 02, 2013 2:37 pm

When i use the in-app search, after entering the search term (e.g. "HP Pavilion", but it could be any search term or a direct street address) the program pauses with the spinning icon in the middle of the screen for 15 to 20 seconds. Been doing this for 4-5 months or thereabouts. I uninstalled and re-installed the app, but the problem persists. It turns absolutely any search on Waze into frustration. Any thoughts?

I'm wondering whether it could be getting stuck searching my contacts. I have about 1,000 contacts from Exchange, more if it searches unfiled and "suggested" contacts. I'm wondering if it slows down while churning through those contacts in the search??

Figured it out. Good old MS Outlook grabs a copy of every email address ever sent to you or copied on an email to you. This adds up over time. I had 29,000 "suggested" contacts. I killed all of those, leaving only "real" contacts, and that cleared the whole thing up. Waze was just choking on all of those "suggested" contacts.
