    Google Maps - Saving Existing Location

    Does anyone know if Google Maps allows you to save your existing location as a "favorite"? For instance, if I'm at a coffeeshop and want to save my location, using a GPS, I can save my current location. I tried doing that with my droid but couldn't figure it out. Thoughts?

    favorite locations

    If you do a long press on the screen, you would go to applications and maps(i believe), here you can record your location as a favorite

    I tried that. When I do a long press, the options I get are "show on map; get directions, navigate, street view, what's nearby, report a problem." No option to save location as a favorite.

    Works for me, i type in the address. Gmaps finds the location. I click it and "add as contact" enter whatever information i want to have and then i can either go to gmaps or my contacts to get directions to the spots. Seems simple enough for me.

    i'd like to know how to clear navagational end points from both google maps, and the car home. i've tried everything to clear adresses, and nothing seems to work. the location saves in the layers option in google maps, and is rather annoying that you can't delete. the same goes for car home. anyone know how to delete?

    Install My Maps Editor from the Market. It will allow you to save your current GPS as a Favorite in your Google My Maps. When in Maps, you just enable the My Maps layer and you will see your favorites and can navigate to them, etc.

    Doing it this way will also make the favorites available via Google Maps on your PC/Mac.

    Also take a look at Google Address Book in the market.

    Just a guess but try:

    Settings>Applications>Manage Applications

    choose Maps > then Clear Cache
