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

I personally hate this idea.
Tap and hold with your finger covering any side of 2 or 3 city blocks is about to as effective as trying to shoot a fly at 100m while just loosely aiming down the barrel of the gun, especially since you cannot move the pin that's placed.
Adding a function to use current coords at the press of a button is definitely not rocket science and is basic functionality of any other GPS.


I like being able to tap and hold on a spot to create a favorite, but I would REALLY like to be able to drag the resulting pin around a bit to adjust it, especially after having already saved the fave.

Quite often, when I'm arriving at my frequent destinations, Waze doesn't think I'm there yet. I like to set favorites at spots about a half a block closer than my actual destination, so if I grab a parking spot before I get there, I don't have to tell Waze to "stop nav". Being able to adjust pin location for an existing favorite would be really helpful in this regard.

Can't you just delete and make a new one?

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

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.

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.

I guess two threads is better than one? nope. The answer is still the same though.
