You can also see the full list by tapping the three dot icon on the bottom right of the app. That'll pull up a menu that offers "step-by-step list" and "mute voice guidance." Tap the list option.
You can zoom in and out in the map app easily by double tapping the screen and leaving your finger pressed on the second tap. With your finger still pressed, you can then move it upward on the screen to zoom in or downward to zoom out.
Work and home
To add your work and home addresses to the app, tap the person icon to the right of the search bar. That'll take you to your profile page and will display two fields -- one where you can tap to type your home address and another to type in your work address.
If you need to edit the address, tap the gear icon on the top right of the profile page. That will take you to the app's settings page where you can tap "Edit home or work." On the next page, tap the address you want to edit.
You can make the Google Maps app face the same direction as you in compass mode by tapping the arrow icon at the bottom left of the app twice. This will switch the direction the app is facing to match the direction you're facing.
Save a place
If you frequent a few places, you can save their addresses by accessing their information pages. Below their addresses you will see "call," "save" and "share" icons. Tap the save icon, which has a star on it, and it will turn yellow.
After that, you can tap the person icon and enter your profile page to see a list of your saved places. You will also see stars on their locations when you see them on the map.
To remove saved places, access their information pages and tap the save icon again. It will be unsaved, and the icon will turn blue.
