    I have the HTC Desire with Google Maps and there seem to be a couple of things I can't do that I used to do with ease on my old SE C905 using the same app, but an older version

    What I want to do is mark where I am, save that location and give it a name of my choosing.

    On my C905 I just clicked "select" and I could save my current location as a favourite and I could rename it to whatever I wanted. I don't seem to be able to do that with the Android version, or can I?

    Thanks in advance :)

    You can save your current location by tapping on the position indicator arrow and then tap on the pop-up. It will open a page with the current position and in the right upper corner is a star, tap it and your position will be saved. Unfortunately, I don't think it's possible to rename the position, but you can go back to your starred items by hitting menu-more-starred items. Hope this helps.
