I have been in the habit of loading favorites in my Contacts so that I can access them quickly. The only drawback to that method I have found is that the name is then ignored during and at the end of the navigation.

Go for a drive, and get stuck in the jam. There is currently no method of injecting such data into the system without driving through the location.

Never likely to be either due to possible abuse issues.

I would like the ability to lock a route and to manually stop the recalculating function.

I recently drove from PA to NC and there are several dead zones in the cell service. If you happen to pull over to get gas or use the facilities, the program will reboot you from your new origin point.... which is great, unless it's in one of the dead zones. I do a lot of rural driving, to see friends, to see clients and it is very helpful to me to have a program that I can plan from the beginning of the trip, and then lock so that if I stop I can get back with out driving blind. The turn by turn did help on the secondary screen.

I have to say, I'm very new to the program and there are a ton of great aspects. I look forward to using it more.

Yes, dropping networkconnection causes the map to reload incomplete, and if you subsequently enter the white zone the wazeclient will start a recalculation. If you still are without connection to the routingserver the client will calculate a route based on the fragments of the map that are in memory and without actual trafficinformation. Such routes are always suboptimal... You can avoid white spots in your map by zooming in and moving the map around. All mapdata is then stored in memory and available when you enter a zone without reception.

If you do have a networkconnection and waze starts recalculation of a route (maybe because you left the planned route or because a road is not drawn precise enough in the map) the new route will always be the fastest based on your current location. If you calculate 3 alternatives you will see that the new route is always the #1 on the list. If you selected a different alternative the 1st time, that route is forgotten and history after a recalc.

A better solution would be to (let the client itself) calculate a short deviation to bring you back to the previous selected route. You are guided around the roadblock ahead of you but you keep the general direction of your route then. Alas, we have not heard that Waze is considering such an option.

This is a simple one, probably asked, but can you put the road your on at the bottom of your screen?

In landscape mode, this would become problematic. Add in the nav bar and the destination bar and you've got like 10% space left for seeing the actual map.

It would be nice to see where my destination actually is at the end of my trips. Such as "destination on left/right", both by label and voice command.

Being in a city, I often run into places I've never been before, and subsequently pass by on accident because I didn't know which side of the street it was on or what lane I should be in

Any thoughts already to adding this function in a future update?

I would like to be able to designate my current location as a favorite without entering an address.
