Heading out to family and friends for the holidays and curious how to easily find their addresses in the iPhone, iPod touch, or Maps app? Well here is a great tip to make navigating a little bit easier, and we'll show it to you after the break!
If you are like me you don't memorize anyone's contact information anymore. You simply enter their phone number, email address, website, and address into your contacts list on your iPhone and then, whenever you need it, you just tap on it. Luckily Apple ties iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad Contacts into the other apps, like Maps!
First, if you haven't done so yet, make sure you've entered address information for the Contacts you will be visiting. Then:
- Open the Maps application
- Select Directions on the bottom menu
- Select the Start box and choose "Current Location"
- Select the End box and start typing in the contacts name
- Select the contact once it appears
- Let it load and click on Start at the top right
Bonus tip: If you're in Contacts, you can tap right on the address to switch to Maps and see where they're located.
Now you can be on the way to your destination without having to type in the address manually. Let us know if you plan to use this feature as you hit the roads this holiday season.
