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

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.

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 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.

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:
