Search history when multiple places named the same (brand)

Postby PatrickSmart » Sun Jan 04, 2015 10:14 pm

When traveling, I took the habit, thanks to Waze, of stopping at the same brand of restaurant in function of my route. When I type its name, the history will prompt me to go to one of the previous ones I went to. If it's only the second time I search for this, I will have no way of knowing it's not just an auto complete. If I have been to this franchise multiple times, the list becomes quite useless.

My suggestion is to fix this in two parts:
- add a first history hit that is an actual auto complete in function of the navigation history,
- add a subtitle for the history items which gives their location.

That's annoying. I can't even get my nav history to show up in search right now (iOS).

At least showing a city in there would help. It's pretty useless when you're trying to get to "First Methodist Church" or similar in a different city and can't tell which of the 10+ in your list is the one you want.

Why not name each franchise with a local/official place name? It'll be good to help in searching the related restaurant.

Still doesn't help if the name is long, since it won't give a complete/wrapped name in the display. No way to know which "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Sai..." in the list has the right city name at the end.
