- In Google Maps, you can place a pin, remember the location, and then navigate there.
- If you have no idea the address they’re at, don’t attempt to hunt out the precise location; if a certain place has no address, placing a pin is practical.
- It only takes a few clicks or taps on your phone or computer to place a marker on the map.
Google Maps has navigating around town so simple that it has become a necessity (and has been humorously name-checked in pop culture).
Almost every address may be found by simply entering it in the search field, but occasionally it won’t exactly work.
You might want to put a marker on the geographical map instead if the place you’re attempting to get to doesn’t possess an address or if the address is incorrect. Similarly, if you have no idea of the precise location, it might be acceptable to simply place a pin around the area.
Either a desktop machine or a mobile device may complete the task easily.
Your Android or iPhone phone should be pinned.
No matter what phone you use, the procedure for placing a pin on the Maps feature of the Google smartphone application is the same.
- Start the Google Maps application.
- Locate the spot on the globe where the pin should go, and then zoom in as much as necessary to make it visible.
- Press and hold the desired location for the pin drop until the pin materializes beneath your finger.
The pin can now be used. To obtain instructions from where you are right now to the dropped pin, for instance, press “Directions”.
You may save this icon for later if you’d like. Give it a name by tapping “Label” from the circular menu options above the pin to accomplish that. After then, it will always be accessible in Your Places. Take note that Google Maps for Android and iPhone function significantly differently. Both apps allow you to save and label fallen pins; however, on Android, you must press the data bar near the bottom of the screen to see every one of your options in order to access the label button.
Pin the desktop down on Google Maps.
- Start your PC and Google Maps.
- Zoom in and out of the location map until you locate the spot where you want to put a pin.
- Select the area with a click before dropping the pin. Near the bottom of your screen, an info box and a tiny gray pin should both show.
Use the pin at this point. Google Maps will launch the navigation page if you select the blue Navigate symbol in the info box. You can type in the starting point to obtain driving instructions. You can also click somewhere else within the info window to see an area. With further details about the place you choose appear. To save this place to Your Places and make it easier to find in the future, hit the Save icon from here.
In Google Maps, only one pin can dropped at a time; if you tap or click on the screen again, a fresh one replaces the old one. Additionally, you must be logged in to your Google account to be able to save the dropped mark to Your Places.
