Although I don't use the Ace myself (just browsing this forum because my father just got one), I would assume the interface is standard for Android.
If so, tap on the Google logo in the top left corner (just left of the search box) it brings up a menu which includes "My Places" - tap on this & then long press the one you wish to remove - you will then be given the option to delete it.

You're welcome

With your other problem, is it wrong when you search for your address or are you talking about the app finding your current location using GPS/WiFi/mobile network?

If it is the former, then there is information on how to correct it here (Not sure if you might need to use the PC version to report problems etc): Fix an error on Google Maps - Maps Help

If it is the latter, the accuracy is variable depending on which location method is being used.

When I want to use map without internet, I just click on map symbol and map opens. you can then scroll left, right, up and down without it going online. I think.
