Smileokay…I’m trying to learn Google Maps. I watched Episode #126 today and followed along with my iPhone…adding “starred places”, “fave restaurants”, “want to go”, etc. so far so good. This evening I get on my IPad, opened Google Maps and was surprised that I did not see any of my iPhone ” your places” I have saved. I guess I thought the devices would sync…yes? no? What am I doing wrong? Please advise, and thanks in advance.

NEWS FLASH: I figured it out! I forgot I had 2 GOOGLE accounts! I knew it had to be something simple! Thank You!

I will carry on with my GOOGLE MAPS EDUCATION…You are the best!

Yes, you should be able to see your places o your iPad. If you don’t, there are a few possibilities

  1. Your iPad is not logged in to the same Google account as your phone
  2. your map settings is hiding those places

ahh! I just saw your “news flash” good job!
