    LOL maybe I am just clueless, however, if you put a destination address into google maps, is there anyway to then remove it? I can clear the map, however, if you go into layers, the addresses still show...can these be cleared?

    Thanks!

    On mine when you tap layers it says "Clear Map" and "More Layers" on the bottom. I just tap clear map and my searches are gone.

    FOUND IT!

    Go to the map, then click the 4 lines home button, then click more, then clear map!

    =)

    Ok, I figured it out- but it's a pita.

    Exit out maps, options home key, settings, applications, manage applications, options home key, filter, select show all, go to maps in the applications, click clear data.

    Haha ; p

    Guess Google forgot that option, eh? Thus beta =p

    Current Phone Model:
    Samsung Galaxy s4
    Go to settings > applications >manage apps > filter to All Apps> go to maps> clear data.

    That's how I got rid of my previous destinations.

    Twoo beat me to it. Was posting from Droid...still kinda slow =p

    Yikes, that is quite the workaround...and it clears everything from the program. Hopefully they will put something in there just to clear previous addresses :)

    Thanks for the help!
