    Hi. I've looked around the web, and I know many have had this issue, but I've not resolved my problem.

    I have several Starred Places in Google Maps. I've renamed them in Bookmarks. Those name changes are accurate on my map, but when I view a list of my Starred Places it still only shows me the addresses.

    Can someone explain how I can change the names in the list?

    Thank you!

    If you go to www.google.com/bookmarks it should show you a list of your starred places. You can click on "edit" and change the name of the place. For me, this new name will show up on my maps when I click on a star, but when I look at a list of my starred places it still only shows the addresses.

    ah, that worked! wish there was a way to do it from your Droid, isnt that why a lot of people are using Droids? to get away from their reliance on a stationary computer for a lot of their day to day stuff!??
