    I see there is now "favorites" where destinations I had previously bookmarked are listed. How do you add a new address to favorites?

    If you have the address listed under a contact you'll do this:

    - Tap favorites where you're seeing it

    - On the bottom go to the contacts tab at the right

    - Select the contact and the saved address

    - Once the contact is showing on the map, tap the contact, and tap the top right corner tab and you'll see the option to add to favorites

    What if the address is not listed under a contact? I Drive a delivery truck and the addresses I'd like to save I'd prefer not to save as contacts. I liked the previous IOS 7 maps feature where you could just bookmark an address inside Apple maps itself.

    I believe if you manually insert the address in the text field on maps it will end up under your "recent" on that same tab on the bottom that I was talking about.

    So it appears in this new IOS 8 maps there is no longer a way to "bookmark" an address.

    I suppose l'll get used to it but I dislike that it now requires you to add to your contacts.

    Once you enter an address and Maps finds it, select the pin. In the top right hand corner is a share icon. Tap that and it should give you the option to "Add to Favorites". It will ask you to select a name and that's it. It will now show up in the favorites list in Maps.

    Great concept but I've tried it 3 times and the address still doesn't appear in favorites.

    Instead of tapping the pin, tap the icon with the small car indicating driving directions.

    The only option I get when tapping the small car is "print".

    Actually you do have to tap the address once it's searched for. Saves to my favorites just fine

    I had 200 bookmarks that I created in maps by entering gps coordinates. The app was working great for me. After IOS 8 my bookmarks became favorites. Unfortunately, now when I select one of my bookmarks/favorites, it gets me near but not exactly to the original coordinates. Also instead of the pin displaying the bookmark/favorites tag name it displays the approximate street address. I can make a new favorite that is correct, but the old ones no longer work correctly. Remaking all 200 bookmarks will be a chore.
