Can have only 3 favorite places.

Post by
Hi, I have Waze on Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 (Android 2.3)
I can have only 3 favorite places. When I add more than 3 and restart application the oldest are gone.
Is this normal application limitation or am I experiencing some kind of bug?

There is no limit we've found for number of favorites. What method are you using to add a favorite?

I do believe that problem may still exist. Hence my question on "how" they were being added.

If the streets you are tap-holding on have no name, then this is a known issue. You are encouraged to go to the map editor and update the map. Waze also supposedly knows this is an issue as it's been reported several times. You are also encouraged to add your feedback to the appropriate official feedback thread in the Client forum.

Make sure this is posted as a bug in the official feedback thread for your client version. Also send a report in to Waze via the Quick Help forum on the /Support page.

Hello... but, when are they internal/private roads and don't have names? I need to save like a favorite, but it's impossible... I think that the primary key of favorites need to be the GPS point or a number, and not the name of street/road... ;)

So if I understood correctly, favorites on unnamed streets just disappear sometimes? I have added a favorite two times already, and it has disappeared two times.

Name the needed road somehow, like: unnamed road, unknown road; or with name of district.

That is correct, yes. Your best bet in such a case is to edit that street in WME, wait for the next client-map update, and then set your favorite once the road is named. I've had to do this several times in the past few months.
