In Google Maps Android 5.10 you can save a place by clicking and starring the place. However, the name of the saved place is automatically generated by Maps, and can't be edited.
Is there a good way to edit that title, to show the correct/actual name of that place for example?
Googling I only found a solution involving editing the starred place in Google Bookmarks webapps. Is there a better solution?
Update 11 Jan 2016 In latest Google Maps Android (version 9.18.2 2015) there is now an "Add Label" feature/command available when you view a saved/starred place. See Give a place a private label for detailed instructions.
Old workaround (no longer necessary) After starring a place in Google Maps Android, you can open Google Bookmarks webapps to display your bookmarks. Sort by date to show your latest bookmark and clicking on the
Edit button allows you to edit that place bookmark title. The new title would display in
My Places (now shown as
Your Places) on Google Maps Android. Not an ideal solution, but a workaround involving additional webapps.
Update 13 July 2015 Unfortunately latest Google Maps Android (version 9.11.0 2015) doesn't show the place bookmark titles that you have edited in Google Bookmarks webapps.
