I keep forgetting how to add a favorite to OSMAnd, so I've recorded this show to remind myself how to do it.

  1. Search for a location, either in the Hamburger Menu or clicking the Magnifying glass icon
  2. Type in your address and select the place
  3. The screen will appear with a Locator Pin
  4. On the bottom click Add and Save
  5. You can optionally include them in a group

Click Search

Or Menu Search

Type address eg Amsterdam Centraal

Locate address, and click Add

Click Save
