Did you know you can input some default locations in Google Maps to make searching for locations easier?


You can set locations like “home” or “work”, which means you can access them quicker when you’re looking up directions.


To do so, open Google Maps, and then press “my places” at the top of the left-hand side of the screen. There you can input some favourite locations.


You can also look at your search history on that bar to find some most recently visited locations.
