      Thanks for the info!
      As of Google Maps, this feature is so much needed by so many people that it would have to be implemented in a bit more obvious way. Still, luckily, it turns out to be there after all…

    If they just carried this feature to android. I use it all the time on my desktop for planning trips, but its not on the mobile side. The only thing Ive found is GeoPin for android, it uses google maps and you have to be online to load the maps, even though you can move around and get to coordinates, its still a blank map.
