Download and update the app and set a destination, drive to it. Look at the black bar at the top with 4 buttons :-)

There is a park feature in the latest version of Waze, check it out...[/quote]

Where would I go to find this feature?
Thanks

Can you tell me, where is that exactly and how do I use it? I found it once, but couldn't make it work, and then couldn't find it again. Waze is not always user friendly and other times works like a charm. :roll:

Thanks

The people who leave it on would complain that it marks their spot at the bank, the grocery store, the Subway, at home and everywhere else and then want a feature to disable the feature based on four square category of the destination.

No, I think a one button tap to mark your spot is plenty.

Why not automate this, and just say that you are parking, where waze was switched off last time?
Because not everyone returns to the same place each time they start Waze.


Ok, it would be just an option, but you shouldn't explicitly press another button, but get it for free.
If the current location differs from the last known position, waze would tell you, that, oh, you are not the same place, as last time. Should I show you that location (your parking car)?

Hit: Menu -> navigate -> history -> little arrow after the desired destination -> more -> add to favorites
