    Just got the droid and I love it. However I was playing around with the Google Maps Directions and such, entered in a few locations and it saved all of them to my Layers screen. How can I clear them? I don't want those there when I hit the layers button, but I can't find any option to clear them. Anyone know how?

    After more research, I found the following:

    Go to:

    Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications

    press the menu softkey, choose Filter, then choose All.

    From there, you can choose the Maps and then select "Clear data"

    However, this basically wipes the entire data storage for Maps.

    Doesn't the "Clear Cache" option from the Settings/Applications/Manage Applications/Maps clear this information?

    BTW...I got the new Maps update this morning as well...

    Hmmm...that is odd...I was able to use it to clear my cache just before posting. I am running version 3238. What version do you have?

    The only thing I've found to work is to uninstall the update via "Manage Applications" and then you can follow betoranaldi's instructions of
    "Go to:

    Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications

    press the menu softkey, choose Filter, then choose All.

    From there, you can choose the Maps and then select "Clear data" "

    Not a true fix by any means and it works at the expense of losing the new stuff offered by the updates.

    This worked perfectly for me, thank you.

    Go to your apps. App-menu where all the Apps are located. Then, like you would Uninstall any App, Drag G-Maps App, and drop it on the AppInfo sign, (on the top of your screen).
    Then click UNINSTALL UPDATES
    It will clear your layers search history.

    Welcome to Android Forums. Glad you could join in. Did you notice that the last time someone posted to this thread (date in upper left hand corner of the message) was just under three years ago? What one are you using and who is your carrier?
