I still see no need for any alternate method as you can tap hold anywhere on the map and add it as ANY favorite. Name it "Home" and it is that. Name it "Work" and it becomes Work. If you already have such favorites named, delete them first.

Alternative Way to Add a Work/Home Address

One of the problems that I have found when setting up both home and work addresses, that it is not always possible to select either address using the search bar or if it does work, it most often places your home or work address in a location that is very much away from the true location that it is.

A suggestion to overcome this problem is to have an option that when you select a FAVOURITE location that there is a drop down menu so the location can either be added as New favourite or either a WORK or HOME location. This option would easily fix the many reports that I have found and read left by members.

I can very much see that having the option the add either your Work or Home address with a dropdown option to choose from within FAVOURITE would be a massive benefit to users in places or countries around the world that don’t have or include for names or places on maps.

People visiting you would otherwise not be able to find you.

Choosing Home & Work Address

Very true... Here in India we have faced it many a times as there are no road names mapped all over the city properly you tend to find your home or office quiet far away from actual location.
