    Finally some clear steps on saving a location in Google Nav

    Google maps navigation on the droid never ceases to amaze me.
    Everyday i learn something new.

    Recently i've been trying to save my current location and couldn't figure out how. Droid people have the best GPS on earth and most of us, including me, don't know how to use it to it's full potential.

    HOW TO SAVE A CURRENT LOCATION-
    1. in google maps find your current location (menu> my location)
    2. press and let go (i have an icon of my head to represent my location)
    3. this action should bring up the standard black background nav menu (with options to navigate etc...)
    4. The address of your current position should be at the top beside a star
    5. click on star till it fills in.
    6. go back to the map
    7. click on menu
    8. click on more
    9. click on starred items
    *************************

    YOUR LOCATIONS WILL BE HERE
    Enjoy.

    BTW, it is easy to navigate to a contact- we all know how to do it. This info is for those of us who want to save a location but not as a contact to come back to.

    I would like to see a screen capture of the icon of your head to represent your location.

    if you choose:
    menu>lattitude

    i think it lets you choose it even if you don't JOIN LATTITUDE

    i don't think you want to join lattitude because gnav reports your location somehow.

    i think if you do the lattitude thing gnav becomes linked to your google accounts and uses your google avatar for nav.

    after doing the lattitude thing gnav began using my gmail avatar for nav.

    Has anyone figured out how to save a custom route, and not just a location, yet? I can think of a few places in the US where this would come in handy...

    My Maps (in the market)? That may just do landmarks...not sure.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.
