Are you searching for a business or point of interest or a specific street address?

Well, that doesn't seem right, like something went wrong with the installation. You should definitely see all six sections. I would definitely try removing the app completely. And then download a fresh copy from the app store. Favorites are stored on the server, so they will download after install.

Hm. Very strange, but that did the trick (restarting after uninstalling). Not sure what was going on but thanks for the suggestion.

I'm thinking that, as sometimes happens with "upgrades" to apps from the App Store, not everything gets installed correctly. By removing the app and restarting, you've got a "more solid" base to start from.

3rd-party search results not appearing [iPhone]

Postby connor_g » Wed Feb 08, 2012 10:09 pm

Ever since a few months ago, when I do a search in Waze, it only shows Waze results and Contacts results--the tabs like Google, Bing, Yelp, etc. are all missing. Help!

To clarify: I'm using the latest version of the iPhone client, in the US. The 3rd-party results worked for a while but then stopped appearing.

I did upgrade to a 4S back in October... I don't remember if that's when the results stopped appearing. But I use waze basically twice a day every day and they've never reappeared. I just recently tried reinstalling the app but that hasn't helped either, at least not yet.

No matter what I search for only the two tabs appear: Waze and Contacts.

I saw this on a friend's iPhone a few days ago. It was suggested that this will happen until you've navigated a few times, however I see that you're not a brand new user. Did you just upgrade your phone or reinstall Waze?

Try reinstalling. I can't imagine that this is a problem for everyone who has a 4S, although the example I saw over the weekend was also on a 4S. I'm still running a 3GS.

Just worked for me as well, thanks!
I bet there are a lot of folks out there that don't understand what happened to 3rd party search. I was initially thinking Waze had some falling out with their partners and that it was intentional...
