Nothing in their USELESS support (??) page.
All I need (if it is available): I plug aunt Millie's address in and I go to visit her.
Then in 30 days I want to go back again...Could I had saved her address (she is not a restaurant), so I don't have to plug it in again???
I could do it with my old GPS...can I do it with Google?? Since Apple hogs the "Contacts"?

Tap the little person icon in the top right of the Google Maps app. At the next screen tap "Learn More".

Thaink you...but I do not see the "Learn More" button on the second screen - after I tappped the person icon :-(
Just my name and my "Recently Saved and Shared".
The question: How do I add to my "Saved and Shared"?
Thank you again!

If you sign out of your Google account the screen with Learn More should appear.

OK deggie and thank you again.
I was there before. It looks like you can save the address of a restaurant, store movie house or some kind of business, already in the Google database...but you CANNOT save Aunt Millie's address - see above - like I used to do with my 5 yr old GPS :-(
Too bad, Google! I hope, since Apple Maps hogs the "Contacts", Google Maps will come up with a way to save addresses, beyond businesses.
For example, you plan a visit to San Diego and you plan to visit 3-4 friends while there. You can save their addresses before hand and make your life easier...or use Apple Maps with your Contacts and simplify your life!
Thank you again!
