Seems pretty clear this feature is not working. I'm not able to find a contact that I KNOW is in my list. Changing settings doesn't seem to help.

hi
I had the same problem: samsung galaxy s6
I've found myself solutions
1 -First, close the program
2 -go to menu >> setting >> Account >> more >>Turn on auto sync
3- in quick setting turn on Sync
4- open waze and find friend

good luck

I just tried it on iP6S+ and Waze 4.1.0.0 and for me it´s working. Of course only for contacts with completed address.

JagFanCL wrote:SOLVED! Once Waze asked for permission to access my contacts, everything was solved. The trick was to get Waze to actually *ASK FOR PERMISSION*. That turned out to be challenging. 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??????

Same issue here. Waze only shows about 10 of my contacts.
