I keep having to drill down thru the entire subdir structure from the Unix root on my iMac each time I Import

Is there a way for LR^ to have a location it remembers from one session to the next? I don't see anything in the prefs. This is happening whenever an iPhone is connected for charging.

Thx

At the bottom of the import dialog, you have an option to save settings like this as an import preset. So you can save a preset for each folder you frequently use.
And to this preset you can also save all your preferences for file renaming, how you file photos in (new) folders, keywords, etc. What is nice about a preset is that it gets loaded when you click on the IMPORT button, but you can still change any of those settings.

The question is, it it the Source folders you're having to hunt down (they're not stored in Import presets) or the Destination folder?

If it's the source folder, try clicking on the top left corner of the dialog and you'll find shortcuts to your recently used sources.
