    Default Google Maps Question

    When I route something on the app, is there a way to access recently searched/traveled routes or some sort of history? Can I save a destination in the app like I can star when using the google maps.com website?

    As of now, once I close it I can't find recently searched routes.

    This is what shows up in search, or should I say below it.

    I blocked out a few addresses for security purposes. I hope you don't mind....

    Hmmm, I don't see that, also may be because everything I have searched is not nearby? Like over 60 miles away? You would think you could see a recent history of all, not just nearby. Perplexing.

    Nope I have a few from OH in there if I scroll down...

    Try this...

    Hit the little person icon on the right.Then check on the gear icon..

    Choose Maps history.

    Here is another all showing clocks.. This may vary well be web history from my Gmail account as I never search these locally on iPhone.

    You only have one Gmail account? If not are you signed into the correct one your searching on Google Maps?


    I will mess around with it a bit more and provide more feedback if I can...

    Default Google Maps Question

    Anybody notice when using MapOpener for jail broken phones that if you click on a link, Google Maps load but won't give you a link for navigation. If I open Google Maps and input or click on a saved link it shows the navigation button just fine. Any suggestions
