How to 'star' a place on google maps if it has an unknown address zainhaqqi 3/28/11 6:46 AM
I had an older version of google maps which was working fine. In the latest version, i.e. 4.5.2 there are limited places on maps which you can identify with an address, and then star them. However, it is not possible to do so for unknown addresses. This was one of the most useful feature of google maps whereby you could star any place for future directions, and I dont see the reason why it was decided to get rid of it.

The current Google Maps for mobile version is 5.2.1, not 4.5.2. Your mobile phone provider must be placing some restriction on updates.

For the latest version (5.2.1) you have 2 ways, that I know of, to add a star item to Google Maps mobile.

You could use, if known, the coordinates of the point without an address to do a search in Maps.
For example (loc: latitude, longitude)., you will get a marker at those coordinates, by clicking on it you will get a page from where you can perform other tasks including making it a star item. Just press on the white star at the top right corner of the page and it will become yellow and a star item.

You can also do a long press on the map screen at the point of interest, it will add a marker position from where you can star the position as described above.

Give it a try in Maps 4.5.2 to see if it works there too.
