please make it possible to change the color of the star for starred places

or have a spot to make notes for each starred account.

Different colors would be better as it would make it easy to plan my day at a glance.

Please please. and thanks.

Heck Yeah!! That's what I'd be hoping for.  It would be awesome to be able to change the color of a starred place.  I'd use it to fit categories like hotels, restaurants, sites, transportation, shopping, etc.  Would be great. How about it?

I believe that once a person is really serious about a map he will skip over "starring" and create a "My Map" which is easy enough to do.  Then you can just choose icons of different colors or styles.  Go to Google and enter "Jeff's Icons."  The first site on the search results page is the one to go to.  Then click "Map Icons for Google Maps."  There are seven styles:

Daggers, Balloons, Feathers, Crayons, Markers, Pencils and Push Pins -- total icon count: 420.

They are free to use and you don't need to download them in order to use them because they are hosted by Jeff's Icons, just cut and paste the URL for them when using the "Add Icon" feature in Google My Maps.  Instructions for using the site are there also.

The "My Map" might be easy in some cases but not all the time.  I have clients that I show properties to and it is MUCH EASIER to locate properties and star them without creating a "My Map."  If I could differentiate clients by star color, that would be great!!
