True but by the same people who designed it inadequately in the first place?
Aww come on. SW is never perfect and what is easy and intuitive for one person is not for another. It's easy for you to say "this is the way it should be". But that may not be the way I think it should be.

Its complicated. Accessibility concerns, performance, reliability, safety, etc all come into play, including human psychology.

Not to mention the all important, time, money, quality triad.

Engineering, especially SW, is always about compromise, and its up to the developers to figure out the best places to do so.

I agree that I was a bit harsh. As someone who has developed several educational/training software packages over the years, I fully understand your points. Whenever a significant issue arose with any of my software, I would always have another person or team work on the issue (in addition to myself) and believe that is a good practice. I would assume that is the case for Ford. Fresh perspective never hurts although it might not always be the most efficient approach.

Ok nobody responded to your question--not sure if you figured it out or not but I did and it isn't obvious at all. I only happened to find it because I touched the screen in the right way...

Here is the secret:
Search for a location(s) and tap the one you want (so the screen shows it like you want to go there with the green "Go" button).

Now the super secret thing to do: touch the name/address of the location and drag it up. You'll see the star button, weather and a whole bunch of extra info--a lot really as you can drag it up a lot.
Thank you SO much! I have spent hours trying to figure this out!!!

Ok this shows you that the lead designer of the system was on LSD! At least that explains a lot of things. By the way, I'll never remember this function.

All you have to remember is to occasionally scroll up. There are a few gems around the system if you scroll up on a screen or two.

There are some other really handy features if you scroll the screen there. Charging stations have all kinds of information (if they're in Ford Network, if they're fast charge, etc), if it has Yelp star ratings or information, you can see all the details there, and even parking garages show prices and information.

God bless this Forum! I looked for it everywhere and tried the digital owner’s manual. Nothing. And I consider myself (relatively) tech savvy.
THANK YOU!
