I wasn't aware there was a limit, though it makes some sense there would be one. 150 seems a little low, though....

OH, you know you're displaying all your favorites when the last entry in the list is:

+ Add new favorite

Ahh.

OK. So if I go to my favorites (on the new phone):

* scroll to the bottom
* click on edit
* delete the last one
* click on done
* click on back
* click on favorites
* scroll to the bottom

I see a new favorite at the bottom.

It seems that there is a maximum number of favorites displayed on the list. Delete one, a new one appears. Presumably until you reach the display limit.

HTH.

Mine have in the past as well when I've had to wipe waze off the phone. I'm just trying to figure out what the mileage is based on for it to vary here.

Mine always have with each new device/ROM/install - which probably covers between 30-50 events in the last year. I only have about 10 though.

Clearly YMMV.

You can't really. Favourites are only downloaded once on a new install, they are not synced. Yet.

I believe it is a known (or recurring) issue that the favorites stored online still include all the favorites you've deleted, which are then restored on fresh install. I am unaware of a fix for this at this time.

Attempting to resolve the issue, I removed Waze from the iPhone 5. I then added Waze again. Yes, it brought back favorites, but not the same favorites as found on my iPhone 4.

Why would two phones, both logged into the same account, have different lists of favorites?
