If you "star" locations as you search for addresses in Google Maps, your starred locations will show up in My Maps after the list of maps you have created.
But note: Locations can NOT be starred from within the My Maps edit function.
To create a starred location, search for the address. Remember: Searching for an address immediately removes you from My Maps. When the address is found, click on the location marker to bring up the info balloon. Then click on the star outline to the right of the address.
Clicking on the star outline will fill the star with the color yellow, indicating the location has been starred.
All of your starred locations will always show in My Maps under the list of maps you have created.
To UN-star a location, click My Maps, find the location in the Starred Items list, and click on the yellow star.
Tips: You can NOT star from from within My Maps, but you can UN-star from within My Maps. To enter My Maps, click My Maps :-) To exit My Maps, search for an address.
