I run Waze on two devices. One at the time. To "sync" favorites I delete all traces of Waze on one device. That includes clear data, clear cache, force stop, uninstall, delete waze folder. Wait few hours and re install from .apk or Play Store.

Tried logging out and back in. Tried deleting the app and reinstalling. Still nothing, what else can I do?

And there seems to be a known problem with that. It hits very rarely, but when it does, your favourites are gone.

I lost all my Favorites

Postby CarlosLienstadt » Wed Oct 12, 2016 11:16 pm

Suddenly I lost all my Favorites.
I already uninstall and reinstall the app again, but the Favorites didn´t came back. Points and status ok, but no Favorites.
Any tip?

If you still have your old phone: copy the history file from its Waze folder. Always keep your own backup of that file to keep things in your own hands.

Started a drive, and everything was normal. When I finished and went to put in another destination, all my favorites were gone.

Tried logging out and back in. Tried deleting the app and reinstalling. Still nothing, what else can I do?
