Google adds saved locations to maps – a first step

In letting users redraw the map, I talked about letting users save personal points of interest.

Google recently added saved locations to its mapping product to let people enter requests such as “pizza near home”. The interface is a little clunky – after you type home, you have to select the matching entry for home and it then populates the search field.

Personal POIs aren’t displayed on the map.
