With Google Maps you can set home and work locations for quick access to navigation. In fact, these two locations are so central to the Maps experience that if you haven't saved both, the app can be a little crazy about it. But if you work from home, there is only one address to use, so what should you do?
You would think that with Google Maps you could save the same address as both your home and your workplace, but enter your home location because your work address is labeled & # 39; Home & # 39; deleted and vice versa. So to circumvent this, you must use an alternative method. It does not give you any significant new functionality, but once you have set your locations in this way, Maps no longer asks you to set & # 39; Work address & # 39;
Set your house as your work location
Open Google Maps and go to the main menu by tapping your user avatar at the top right of the search bar. Then press "Settings" in the menu and then select "Edit home or work" on the next page.
& # 39; tab & # 39; if you are not there yet, then select & # 39; Work & # 39 ;. This is the secret: do not enter your address . Instead, tap & # 39; On the map, choose & # 39 ;, pan, and then zoom to place the blue pin on the location of your home and press & # 39; Save & # 39 ;. Once done, your workplace will appear as "Dropped pin" in Google Maps.
It is worth noting that Android allows a more precise placement because the exact address on which the pin is located appears at the top while you move it, which does not appear on iOS. Finally, the process is a bit inconsistent on iOS because dropping the pin on your house to set because your work location sometimes removes home status, so you may need to move the pin slightly.
