The ability to modify my favorites through the web interface would be a huge improvement.

This is basically what I was going to post here, especially 3 and 4. Also, I'd like to be able to add more favorites. Yes, I have a lot of favorite places. Sue me.

Same here. I have a student job where I have to supply pharmacies that are on weekend service which requires me to add a LOT of favourites and find them easily as I have a strict schedule.

Editing and re-ordering (or at least sorting alphabetically) is a MUST HAVE!

(and you would think the forum would give us a way to vote up a feature request without having to use this lame +1 method.....)

I've seen this feature request to edit Waze favorites since 2012.

If they are hearing us and wanted to do it, it would have been done already.

Very frustrating when u have a lot of favorites and they don't even come up when u do a search.

It's unbelievable that an app like this doesn't have a such a basic feature like simply alphabetically sorting the favorites. Can't the dev team afford to stop for 5 min and implement this?

A lot more than five minutes. The database on the server would also have to it's schema changed, along with the function on the app to sort, to save the sort and to integrate with the server to update the sort. Still pretty easy tasks, though.

+1 Categories would be a great first start, defaulting to alphabetical sort would be better than what we have.

Every time I open up the app and navigate to favorites, it's sorted differently and apparently randomly.

Would be great to have an option to sort alphabetically for a start. Later on, it might be a good idea to also have add sort by distance (ascending), and then perhaps some form of category.

It's a common issue among GPS apps. Either you get no sorting of any kind, or it's some kind of pseudo-random order.

GPS apps in general can do some amazing stuff, find the shortest paths, re-calculate routes on the fly ... but I've found that many of them can't even do a simple sorting of bookmarks? It's odd.

Anyway, +1 to this thread, and hope to have this feature soon !!

It's 2015. Not having a sort/ordering feature is inexcusable.
