Edit favorites and sorting
Can you add a feature to edit favorites and sort them by name or distance?
Favorites can be manually sorted via the ‘Edit’ button on the favorites list.
Favorites should sort alphabetically
Add sorting by distance
When you have favorites in several states, sorting them by distance would eliminate scrolling through dozens of locations nowhere near your current location. I have about 60 favorites in 4 states that I frequently visit and it would be nice to see the 10 (or so) favorites in the state I'm currently in, listed first.
I feel Favorites should be front and center when I've clicked the magnifying glass or when adding a stop. They're favorites and, thus, likeliest to be selected for a destination. I used to see a history of destinations, but how it's just the categories "Favorites" and "History."
In iOS I can sort favorites but the sorting is not permanent - the list can become un- sorted at any time - can this PLEASE be fixed?

Eliminate the 99 Favorite limit! Between the customer locations, hotels I frequent and the normal life stuff, have more than 99 favorites. If this is combined with one of the many Favorite Folder request, it would allow for sorting these things and make finding a favorite much more efficient and easy.
As it is now, it is normally the hotels that come off of the favorite list for me first.

Please give us a feature of sorting the favorite & the recent targets.

Sort by alpha and sort by distance would be fantastic.
While I understand that many people might like the Favorites list to reflect the most recently used destinations, I have found that a favorite destination on the list can be located much faster if the list maintains its alphabetical order. I prefix the name of each favorite by an identifying description, i.e., Friend, Restaurant, Theater, etc., and can locate it much faster if the list is in alphabetical order.

Doesn't seem like it would be that difficult to create a button that sorts your favorites alphabetically.

Every time there is an update on my IOS app the sort of favorites is jumbled. I drive in 2 separate cities and group the favorites by location. But they don't stay in the same place after updates
Yes Agreed, like your suggestions for order...
Play Store should also add this for downloaded apps so you can sort on your phone all apps by Order of Addition, frequency used, alphabetically, etc.
When will they add such a simple feature to the Play Store Waze App? I heard they have it already for IPHONE.....
Allow to imports favourites already saved on other gps devices is a very important feature.
I believe this feature could help waze to have more wazers :)
how about making group favorites. So we could separate friend, family, business favorites in different groups. Would be awesome.

After adding many locations it takes too long to find very important location.
Here the phone contacts automatic sort by most frequently used can be helpful.
At least there can be an option of several sorts:
- order of addition
- frequently used in general
- frequently used in this day of week
- user controlled/custom
- distance from current location

Yes, if you mess up the name, or wish to change it later, it's a hassle to delete it and re-enter the address again (or search for it) just to change the name.
alphabetically sort all entries
How can we do alphabetical sort of our Favorite? It is really required to find addresses we saved faster. Thanks
