Why can’t I get directions to the Griffith Observatory on Google Maps or my iPhone?

I’m driving up from Irvine and I am terrible at directions and need specific directions to get there. It’s not coming up on Google Maps for some reason using the 2800 E Observatory Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027 address.

How do I show speed in MPH using my gps track data and Google Maps?

Steven asks…

How do I add categories to the markers on Google Maps?

I noticed that Google Maps has a new feature that lets me rate locations. In order to find locations, I have to search the categories.

I created a map with many markers of the city I live in, but at no point did I see an option to add a category to the markers. It would be nice to categorise my markers so that it is easier to find locations by type.

How do you do add categories?

Administrator answers:

I am too lazy to read everything you wrote… So ill just tell you now… I have no clue!

Mandy asks…

Do you believe that Google Maps is a security risk to home owners?

Google Maps has a popular tool called “Street View”. Basically you take an icon that is a golden man and put him on whatever street you want to view. It shows a 360 degree view of the area. Well you can view people’s home as well and I was thinking this could evade privacy.

Administrator answers:

No. You can walk down the street and see the same thing
