Navigate to Contact Address doesn't work?

Postby kuduboet » Fri Dec 28, 2012 4:47 am

So I have tried this several times with different contacts and can make it happen every time. If I choose Navigate and go to contacts at the bottom and select an address in a contact, it wants to send me like 5,000 plus miles away! I tried this with myself for my work address which is 17 miles away, it said 5,116 miles. I tried it with a different contact and address and the same thing. If I enter the address it is fine, if I select it from a contact it is totally wacked out? Am I missing something? Thanks

Which version of Waze? Which version of iOS? Which country are you in?

You may have to examine exactly how the addresses are represented in your Contacts. There could be a problem in your contacts.

I am in the USA. I am running version 3.5.1.0 of Waze and 6.0.1 of iOS on an iPhone 4S. When you say check my contact address format, it is filled in exactly as iOS is asking for, street, city, etc. Any other ideas? Thanks for trying

I was thinking that if you had some information in wrong fields or numbers where letters are expected (or vice-versa), that could cause the behavior you are seeing.

Try creating a new contact with the same location information as one giving you trouble, but name it something that another search engine won't pick up. Let us know if that new contact exhibits the same behavior.

Created a new contact and was able to make the issue happen again. I am wondering if it is because it doesn't know the exact "number" on the street, because when I enter it manually it doesn't actually point to the correct location. Guess I will keep trying it and see.

What are the results if you search for the address online (Google Maps, Bing Maps, etc.)?

Works fine then, it is the exact same address, but when entering the address via say Google all works fine, when going to the exact same address from the contact it gets all wacked out

Ty uninstalling Waze, reboot your phone and then reinstall Waze.
