I would like to see the ability to add favorites just based on your location at that time. So you don't have to put in an address.

A couple of thoughts:

1. A "landmark" that shows up in the map editor, but not in the client and has it's own layer. To leave notes to other editors or reminders to ourselves.

2. A way to indicate that a road is divided (a barrier, etc.) to the routing without having to draw in every driveway (I'm not talking about the black lines from the old editor. this should be a road property not something visible without a addon-script). There are tons of roads that don't meet the criteria for division, but behave as divided highways in a routing sense (If GPS point A is on the right side of the road, the routing engine should be sure to route in from the right).

3. **already been beaten to death, but... U-turn control at junctions. Have it be the same as a the toll option (check box, option to avoid), assign some penalty in routing. Seems doable from a layman's perspective(I'm no programmer and getting my computer to say "hello world" is probably outta my grasp, so this may be way more complex that I can even imagine).

My 2 cents.

+1 on speed limit on roads, maybe an icon above or bellow the current speed

Sure, but editing an existing favorite to change pin location or heck, how bout just the name!, would be so much easier.

Same here. You sure the ones you're talking about are on your side of the road?
Also as explained above you can add current location as a favourite by pressing and holding, then tapping the little blue right arrow, then Add

For me at least, the Thanks/Not There pops up at least a quarter mile before you get to the spot, stays up counting down the distance until you get to the spot of the report, and then changes to a 12 second countdown until it auto-closes (2/10 mile at 60 mph).

+1 on saving current location as a favorite.

Also, the "Is the policeman / broken down car / etc. still there?" comes up and disappears long before I can tell if the problem is still there... it needs to remain visible at least until the spot is reached, preferably for a couple tenths of a mile afterwards.

Otherwise, loving WAZE!
