Hi Jen and welcome, you can set up "Favorite" search locations within Google maps, once you select one of your favorite locations, your map will load.I think one of the features i would use most are the google maps, since i get lost consantly. i wonder if you can save a few maps (for me, say a map of boston) on the iPhone harddrive so I can access it even when I'm not near wifi.
I wonder if you could save directions with the maps. ala mapquest has turn description as well as show you your path.
"Save" meaning... as a printout? Screen capture? Weblink? All three are possible. I'm sure the iPhone will have cache, so if you leave for a trip (where you won't have wifi or edge) just keep that screen with directions up.Google maps does show turn by turn directions, but I don't think you can "save" them

I have used this feature several times in last few days, and it loads fine for me. I am in the Houston area, I think ATT Edge reception is pretty good here. At least for me but I am more of the "I am excited just to have the phone" than concerned with what it is not doing. That is just me. Oh, don't get me wrong, I anxiously wait for the upgrades that I trust will be coming as soon as Apple is comfortable with them.I hope that loading the maps up over EDGE isn't as slow as the dickens
I went to The Woodlands Store - they basically just stated that when you have places you go to/or are thinking about going, put in your contacts and you can bring the contacts address up in maps. That was what I got out of it. Sorry if this is not what you are asking.Yep, I know what you mean. At least be able to BOOKMARK the map view like you can bookmark an address.
I don't think so - I personally have tried everything.
