Folder organization is coming. Route optimization based on several destinations may or may not be coming in a future version. Displaying favorites on the map visually? Never heard of that before and not sure why that would be useful.

Does not display Favorites on the Map

Postby lifeinhover » Sat Nov 24, 2012 1:44 pm

:!:
I use Waze for work and have to regularly commute to several different properties i have bookmarked in my favorites. Unfortunately, Waze only gives the option to navigate to them and does not show them on the map.

Furthermore, there is no option to display the favorites according to distance so i can commute to the closer ones as would be seen on a map, rather than going from point A to G and then to B and to Z which would be too complicated.

Also, would be really nice if there was an option to create folders for favorites and to group them according to the cities they are located in eg. Los Angeles, Santa Clarita, Monterey park etc.

I'm a little surprised by your statement, "Display favorites visually, never heard of that before"!

Coming from someone who has been a Nokia fan, i have been using this feature with Nokia Maps on my smartphone for over 4 years where all my favorites are displayed on the map and and the closer favorites are displayed according to distance when navigation mode is selected.

After making a transition to apple with the purchase of an Iphone, i truly hoped the functionality would remain the same as i had heard great things about waze but certain shortcomings keep it behind the competition.

FYI, all Nokia smartphones come with free navigation for life and this feature and more are all built in as Map data provider NAVTEQ is owned by Nokia. This feature is crucial for fleet vehicles that travel to different addresses everyday in their particular route to conduct their routine business.

if you've never heard of this feature, a little research is imperative before posting any comments!

Have a nice day!
