You can search for an address that is across the country and once you see the three dots, you can set that as your starting point, so you don't have to scroll for it.

Yes, there is the Waze symbol in the lower left, that brings up your history and Home and Work.

When you select a destination from a search result, you should see something like this before it starts navigating

If you choose an item from your Favorites or History, then it will immediately begin navigation. In this case, instead of tapping the item, swipe right on the item and choose the "i" bubble, and you'll get the three dots like in the picture.

Search for the location from which you want Waze to navigate. Once you've identified it from the search results, click on the 3 horizontal dots on the right hand side of the screen. You get the option either to view it on the map or to start your journey from there. You can then search for the destination for the journey from there.

I think it's fairly straightforward to do this once you've got that distant location set as the start-point.
