Instructions said that attempting to add friends from contacts would cause the permission grant request, so I figured I'd try that.

Instructions said to go to friends (on V4 for iOS, tap the head in lower right of main map screen) and then click the 'Add Friends' icon, but I couldn't see an 'Add Friends' icon from the Friends pane. I finally found that pretty much by accident; if you swipe down on the Friends pane, the Search and '+' boxes will appear. Press '+', select 'Find friends from contacts', and then Waze will ask for permission. Once I did that, I was able to search contacts directly from the navigation window.



THANK YOU! Why can't Waze/Google make it easier??????

Only one problem. I don't want Waze to know my phone number. I don't need anyone who has my phone number able to contact me. This is a privacy problem. All these apps are using your phone number to tie all your data together. Another great application made useless because the greedy app owners want to know everything about you. I'm in the top 25k users in the country and have used waze for over 4 years. Now I am considering dumping the application.

I've a friend who is a Waze user and I want to add her as a friend. When I click friends>Connect with Contacts, she doesn't appear in the "Wazers you may know" list. I then click "Find friends from contacts" and scroll down to her entry it just says "invite to Waze"

Any ideas?

Been happening to me as well. Some friends on Waze don't show as belonging to Waze.

That friend may have 'Go Invisible' checked. Send the invite...

One thing that has always irritated me is that I can't choose an address from my phones contacts.

Why is that?

Waze­ displays contacts th­at are synced to a Go­ogle account, meanin­g if any contacts are­ saved in another pla­ce, Waze will not rea­d them. Ensure­ you've synced your c­ontacts with a Google­ account so that all ­your contacts will ap­pear properly in Waze­.

I have the same problem. I want to connect with friend who I know is Waze user with registered phone number, the same phone number I have in my contacts on Google and the only option I have is to invite him. He tried to connect me and has the same problem :-(
