So, you're in your friends list. Select the person you want to contact. This assumes that the friend is also a member of Waze. If not, you need to send the user an invitation in one of the ways - for example, via Facebook.

To notify the user, you need to send them a beep-beep message. This is a special sound that can be sent via the Go now section of Waze.
