I too don't have any ideas. I've tested my contacts navigation during this thread and they work just fine. The last thing I might ask before opening a support ticket, is to post a cropped screenshot of one address you're interested in from your Contacts so we can see the address entry, then a screenshot of how Waze shows that entry in the navigation search results.

Like so:

I have the same issue. I've tried it several times and I can only add a favorite, or navigate to a location, if I search for the address or if I add it manually. Selecting a contact will always say it's over 5000 miles away. I have Waze version 3.5.1.0 and iOS version 6.0.1 on an iPhone 4.

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

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

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.

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

I will do that, sitting at home now it is working fine so I will need to get the screen shot when I am not here. I tried going home through contacts today, was about 15 miles away, and it said 5,116 miles so I am sure I will be able to get it to fail again and will post the screen shots, thanks for the help all.
