    It's a lot quicker to do it that way.

    Gonna have to try this one. I tried just saying home and, of course, I had Home depot etc...

    Thanks for the tip

    Is there a Droid tips section yet? That would be great to have since everyone will be discovering something new.

    Great tip. I made a folder on my home screen named Places, after making shortcuts to places I want to go to I just drag them into the Places folder

    With your bluetooth headset, you can get the voice directions and keep the handset in your pocket or belt.

    can someone help me out here? when I long press on my home screen, all i get is the trash icon to drag icons to. When I long press the home button, I get the pop up listing last 6 apps used. when i long press the menu key on the home screen, i get nothing. I'd really like to use these shortcuts, but I cant figure out how to get to that menu.

    If you are getting the trash can, then you are long pressing on an icon or a widget. You have to long press on a blank area on your home screen till a menu pops-up.

    No, the issue was that you will not get the "add" menu on a long press if you don't have an open icon space on your home screen. People should know that, but for a beginner like me, maybe not obvious. duh.. got it now, thanks.

    The other thing to do is log into google maps from your computer and create a layer with all the locations that are important to you. Then when you go on your phone and add a layer you can choose to add the google maps layer, and it will overlay the points of interest on the google map app. So you don't have to create shortcuts.
    Resistance is futile.

    I have this for hiking trail heads in NJ. Working on mountain biking trail heads too. This is cool stuff!
