How to Add a Favourite in Waze


Waze is invaluable when you need directions.  You type in where you want to go, pick from a route, press go and you are ready to drive.  Sometimes, however, you want to have a location ready for use at a later time. You can add a location as a favourite and select it from a list when you want to use it.

It’s really simple to add a favourite in Waze . For Android just follow these simple steps;


  • Open Waze by tapping the Waze icon.



  • Tap the magnifying glass in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.



  • Under your name and any waiting messages, you will see 3 titles – ‘Recent’, ‘Favourites’ and ‘Planned’. Tap ‘Favourites’.


  • Tap on ‘Add new favourite’, next to the plus sign.



  • Type in the address that you want to add and press the magnifying glass in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen to search for it.


  • Choose the place you want, from the list presented to you, by tapping it.



  • A box will pop up with ‘Give it a name’. You can keep the name that it gives you or name it something that is easier to remember and search for. When you are happy with the name, tap ‘Done’.
