Is that an iPhone only feature?
Wait, if I actually read the thread, I see it was iPhone only back in 2012. Makes me feel better about not being able to find it.

You can use the "edit" link at the top of your favorites list, and then manually reorganize it.
that might be tedious for 1000 favorites.

I am curious how to easily get properly-formatted URLs out of waze and into notepad.

If you store the favorites in the iPhone Notes app with the properly formatted URL, it should launch Waze, just like getting the link to a destination or favorite via email or txt.

Not at this time. The calling application can invoke waze by using a properly formatted URL, but this means that the other application has to be waze aware. If they are just calling the native show on map calls... it will open google maps as that is the built in application bundled in for this.

Wow, well, yes, that would be nice. Why don't you start adding them and see what happens? It sure would be nice to be able to have favorites organized in folders!

I have only a few favorites and these are working fine but I want this for my work. I do service bus shelters and each one has a GPS coordinates and a number. If I need to do a service I would just tap on that one in my favorites and the waze would navigate me straight there. And I do service for more than 1000 bus shelters in our city.

I'm not aware of any limit, though there is likely one. You should fill out the form on the Support page.

How many do you have now? Are you having a problem? Why would you need to store 1000 favorites?

Thanks for your reply but I need to store sites to my favorites not my contacts. That's way I was asking how many I can store.

How many contacts does your phone hold? If you have an address attached to your contacts, you can get directions from them. It is on the end of the search screen, just scroll to the right.
