Favorites need to be set to alphabetize automatically.
Thanks for your feedback. At this time, this doesn't fit on our roadmap, but we'll keep it in mind for future product planning.
Be able to filter your favorites by alphabetical order. This way it's easy to find what you are looking for. Specially if your list of favorites is big.
In the “Favourites” I have a lot of favourite routes saved which I can “Categorise” under the headings - FAMILY, FRIENDS, PLACES OF INTEREST, HOSPITALS, PARKS, AIRPORTS, SHOPPING CENTRES, etc. I would like to maintain these in order of:
PLACES OF INTEREST
and so on.
The problem is Waze sorts favourite routes in alphabetical order. Which means that my preferred order is continuously messed up.
So, the suggestions to Waze are :
Create “Favourite Categories”
Add option “Maintain user sort order”
When clicking on the map a box shows up with The name of the location and two shortcuts. I would like to have a shortcut to save and rename that location to favorites.
No Waze, it cannot be described as "Now Available" because whatever manual sorting you do, Waze randomly rearranges list. We need the order to stay as it is and not be scrambled by you please.
The name of favorites should not only be considered when doing voice searches, but should have first priority, way more significant than the name of a business in Google's database.
And, in fact, that IS the way Waze acts when I type the name of the destination (but not when I say the destination).
Why in the world would it act differently when you SAY the name instead of typing it?
If I can type the name of a destination, I'm not as incapacitated as I am if I have to resort to SAYING the name of a destination. Someone who types a destination could fall back on clicking on favorites, scrolling, and then clicking on the desired favorite. If I need to SAY the name because I don't have a free hand or, for any other reason, cannot type, then how much MORE I would need the system to consider my favorites as a valid destination!
The incapacitated use case is DISFAVORED over the use case for those who can type!
Seems backwards to me!
Thanks for your consideration!

Could the upcoming speed camera warning pulse colour be changed to 'RED' instead of blue?
It would make it more highly visible for those of us who drive with the audible alerts turned off and it would be in beneficial stark contrast to the map background colour✓

WAZE, WE NEED OUR FAVOURITES IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER!!!!
I hope you heard me clear enough because it doesn't seem like you've heard anyone else at all!!
For me, it's reordered randomly every time, not just at re-sync.
Either save the order or sort it alphabetically.
Currently, the list is sorted randomly, overriding manual sorting. So, alphabetical would be a huge imporovement.
> "Favorites can be manually sorted via the ‘Edit’ button on the favorites list."
While technically true, it's irrelevant, because the list is rearranged randomly when you go back to the list.
It would be better if favorite destinations could be grouped by location (helpful for people who often travel to the same destinations in another city/ region).
Agreed! Need a way to organize favorites within the large 'Favorites' category. Would also be AWESOME if I could create, edit and manage favorites via the desktop browser interface as I am planning my trips and making my reservations, etc.

Please add an option to allow sorting all saved addresses in alphabetical order. Thanks!
This would be great... I often go on road trips doing various activities like hitting antique shops, etc... I would like to have one folder for a specific road trip that has all the desired locations in it that I can add to it before I go... another great feature would be for a map app to be able to figure out an optimal route to go to the desired locations without doing any back tracking.
This is going to be a deal breaker if I cannot organize favorites alphabetically, and/or by distance. Why is this so hard? My OLD GPS could do it...
I have a bunch of favourites and scrolling for ages to find the right one is annoying.
The ability to group favourites using labels (like Gmail does) would be so helpful.
Not folders though as a favourite could belong to two categories.
Perhaps vary this suggestion to also allow user to sort Favourites by Name, Distance (from current location), frequently used / visited and no doubt a few other user preferred options.
Suggest you add ability for users to SORT Favorites alphabetically.
Being a collection driver for royal mail there are many different routes and numbered collections that I have to visit also the odd business from a house especially with slot of people working from home due to coronavirus. Please can you put folders in place so I don't have to try and remember a different route 6 months down the line,and I can just press go and move through my list of post offices and business without having to type them individually which is risky on the go.
Please it can't be that hard to add folders thankyou
