    Can I save GPS locations?

    Is there any way to save waypoints on google maps? I can't find it.
    For example; if I want to save the location where my car is parked can I do this?

    Go to Market and type in GPS. There are many that do what you want. I dont remember the names, but the ones I looked at where free.

    I'm interested in this as well.

    Specifically for me though, I'd like to save GPS locations for the Navigation App. On other Nav systems I've used I could save entries for Home, Work, and other Favorites. I haven't found this on the Google Navigator yet though.

    If we can't do a home location now, I hope we can in the future. It would be nice to have so when I am out and getting lost I can get my way home

    Actually I found that I could create a shortcut to a specific GPS location on the home screen. Just long press to create a shortcut to Directions and then type in the address and save it with a nickname. I created a folder and put a few locations all in the folder for quick access.

    Damn, why did I not think of that. I figured it would be something like that. Thanks for that tip

    can also make contacts with addresses, then u just go to your contact list, select one and hit navigate. doesnt need a phone # associated with it.

    How do you save the current GPS location (I don't see any obvious way to do that)? This would be useful when renting a car -- just save the current location before leaving the rental lot and then navigate to that saved location when ready to return the car.

    Find your parked car - there are a couple of car finder apps that are free, such as Car Locator.
