Good to know I am not alone or going crazy, now just need to duplicate it so that perhaps the developers can look into it :)

So there definitely appears to be an issue here that hopefully the developers can identify and correct in a future version.

i cant even get waze to recognize my contacts. if i type the contact name in the search, it just does a google search. then when i select contacts at the bottom is still doesnt see it. i tried typing it in exactly and with partial info. im on waze 3.5.2 and ios 6.0.1

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 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.

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

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