Delete Work Favorite

Postby allanj37 » Thu Jan 19, 2012 8:31 pm

I'm trying to delete the Work favorite (not the specific address, but the entire favorite itself). I live less than a mile from my work, and I always ride my bike along the same route, so I don't want to set a work favorite at all. Is there any way for me to make it go away?

Go to the support page: http://www.waze.com/support/

And use the quick help box to search for "delete favorite"

That's not what I was asking.

I don't have a work favorite set at all. When I click on "Navigate", it's listed as "Work (Touch to add)". I want to make that go away because I don't want a work favorite at all. If I go into my actual list of favorites (where you can delete a favorite), it's not listed.

I'm guessing there isn't any way to do this since Waze is designed primarily as a commuting tool. But if it is possible, I'd really appreciate knowing how to do it.

I assume that you are riding a bicycle? If so, do you know that Waze is not currently designed to use when riding a bicycle and you are contributing bad data for the streets that you are riding on?

Please don't use Waze when bicycling.

What device do you have and what version of Waze? I have Waze 3 on an iPhone and I do not have a Work favorite set (I work from my house) and I don't see Work listed anywhere.

I wouldn't put bad in quotes. If being used on a bicycle, it IS contributing bad data and perhaps causing automated jams to be posted.

Good point. I was trying to soften the blow. Bad idea. Previous post edited.

I'm using waze 3.0.1.0 on an iphone 4s. So you're saying that when you click "Navigate", work isn't listed as one of the options for you (because that's what I'm trying to accomplish)?

And I'm not using Waze when I'm on my bike. But that's kinda my point -- I'm not using it for commuting, so I don't want the work favorite to show up. What I want to use the app for is general-purpose turn-by-turn spoken directions when I'm driving somewhere (i.e. never to work).

Correct, I do not see a Work option listed. Could be a new thing with 3.0 if you never upgraded from an earlier version.

Maybe add a Work location, then delete it and see what happens.

Glad to hear you aren't using it on your bike :)

Have you tried hitting the small blue arrow to bring up the location screen and tapping Remove yet? I'm sure you've already tried that, but it should have worked. Could be a bug.
