Some of them I found myself (minority, to be honest), some of them are found by my wife (majority). She send me them per e-mail.
Recently I discovered that it becomes hard to find these “favourites”. They all are ... somewhere. In e-mails, in google maps history, in Here Map favourites. So I need better way to store all these places.
My requirements are:
- One must be able to give a name to a place
- Places must be available offline
- Places must not be locked inside given navigation application
- Places must be searchable
The best way to solve my issue I found - save these places as contacts, in a special group.
Simple like that. But! Works offline, I can name them I can choose which app to use for navigation. And, definitely, I can search for a contact. All 4 criteria passed. And I do not need an extra app for this.
Moreover, google maps shows contacts with filled address on the map. At least on Android. This is a nice bonus.
So, I select usual “contacts” to store places.
If you have found better way to store and manage places - leave a comment.
