    Hey guys,

    I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I can't seem to add/edit Maps.app bookmarks. I can add them, but they disappear as soon as I exit the app. I've checked Bookmarks.plist's permissions and everything seems to be in order ... I'm stumped. Any ideas?

    Problem solved. I changed the owner of var/mobile/Library/Maps from root to mobile, and that seems to have done the trick. I must have manually imported (SSH) my bookmarks from an older version save, because once I changed it to mobile, my Bookmarks.plist was completely overwritten - the bookmarks were still there but the zoom levels were not. I just finished manually re-adding all of them and it seems to be working fine now. :)
