Is it possible to create a location and apply a pin to it and a bookmark for that location?

I think he means manually point and put the marker there. I wish you could because I searched for somethings and it puts it a good bit away when your zoomed in.

Google has it when you Login and use maps you can save the pins and stuff.. I wish they could integrate something that would let you login and you have them saved or not even login since its you own iPhone

Custom Map Locations

Is it possible to create a location and apply a pin to it and a bookmark for that location?
Search for the latitude/longitude coordinates. You will need to convert degrees-minutes-seconds to decimal degrees. South latitudes and west longitudes must be preceeded by a minus sign. If you need a decimal lat/long converter, go here: http://www.fcc.gov/mb/audio/bickel/DDDMMSS-decimal.html. I use Google Earth to get exact lat/long using the "add placemark" feature.

Try it by searching for 38.897661 -77.036567. This will put a pin right on the White House. Tap on the blue > next to the pin to add a bookmark, then edit the bookmark to put in your unique name for the spot.

BTW: map widget also allows searches by 3 and 4 letter airport identifier.
