I have viewed the lesson regarding adding a star to maps. Try as I might, no bueno.
I have a Galaxy S5 and when in GM I do not have triangle curson (?). I have a blue circle. When I press on it a pin drops and I see nothing alowing a star. Is the pin just as good? Also, how do I get rid of a pin when finished with it?
Thanks is advance.
It’s there, they just moved it!
Two ways to get a star:
- When you click on a named place, like a business name, you should see an info card about that place appear at the bottom of the screen – drag that up and it will reveal the Star – tap there to turn it gold,
- If you want a star at your location – where there is no named place – that’s when you tap and hold until you see a dropped pin. Once again, drag up from the bottom to reveal the full info card about the dropped pin and you can tap the star.
Hope that helps.
