I have two places starred in new Google Maps -- home and work. But, I have quite problems using them, when requesting directions or when searching for them in
To fields for directions:
When I search for any address and a pin appears on maps, I can see something like "14 minutes from home -- drive" for approximately half of my searches and for rest of them I don't see that label and must zoom out map largely to find my star and click it.
When I type in
Tofields and start typing
WorkI can't never find these starred places in suggestion list. I always must write nearly entire address to get, what I'm looking for.
In addition, I can type my home or work address hundreds of time and new Google Maps does not seem to remember it or even notice, that I'm searching for it quite most of the time. I must always type nearly entire address to have it appear on suggestion list. I'm pretty sure, that in "old" Google Maps I only needed to type it few times and Google started to "remember" these addresses and each next time I only needed to type 3-4 characters to get this address on top of suggestions list.
Either I'm missing something or using starred places in new Google Maps is extremely useless, not comfortable and frustrating. Is there any way I can access my starred places quickly? So adding them as start point or destination of any directions or route would take only 2-3 seconds and not 10-15 seconds each time, as currently?
