    Default Google Maps still showing my old home address

    I recently moved to a new location not far from my old one and Google Maps still shows my location as the old address. How can I delete the old address so my new location shows on the map?

    Go to my places in Google Maps online and edit the address.

    I believe that you can edit the "home" value in Google Now

    The only thing wrong with this method is that I do not use this phone with a cell carrier, just with wifi and VOIP so I can't do SMS.

    I tried that, but when I bring up Maps, the location marker still goes to my old location and then (sometimes) goes to my new address. I was able to edit my address on Google Maps on the computer in My Places, but it put it in the wrong place (not exactly where my address is on the map). I remember at one time long ago, you could place a marker on Google Maps exactly where you wanted to, but that feature seems to have went away.

    Log in to your Google account and change your Home address.
