    In The new maps can you mark destinations on the maps that you visit with some regularity? I use a GPS on my laptop that allows me to mark locations on the map. When I am traveling in an area I could look at the map and see that there is a customer to visit a few blocks away as there is a pinned spot on the map.

    Save them to your contacts and they will show on the map.

    Can't you see a list of recently found locations? I haven't used iOS 6, so I'm asking.

    Hold your finger for a while on the spot you want saved and a pin will drop, on the label is a little button which you can press and a new screen will open with several options;

    Route to this place
    Route from this place
    remove dropped pin
    put location in contacts
    bookmark location
    Share location
    Report problem

    So yes, you can save/bookmark locations you like.


    Edit;
    On the normal map screen there is a small book icon in the right upper corner which you can press to see all your bookmarked locations.

    Another question is do bookmarked places on Maps sync between iPhone and iPad?

    Ive been through setting up bookmarks, how (if possible) can I have all of my bookmarked locations displayed on the screen. If I am in an area, I would like to see who is around my current location. From time to time I may miss stopping in to see a customer, as I use my current GPS(on a laptop) always in a new area. I would love to shed the laptop, but I need the ability to have all of my stopped shown on the map. Can anyone help? There was mention at the top of this thread about an app within an app, is there anything out there to achieve what it is that I am looking for?
