    Using voice I managed to get directions to three mistakes before getting directions to right location. Still have all distinations showing even though three are incorrect. Would like to delete these destinations or all previous destinations but don't know how to do this? TIA

    Only way I've ever been able to do it is uninstall and reinstall. Thats one thing I don't like about several of the google apps including the play store is that there isn't any option that ive seen to clear history, etc. from the apps

    Try this.

    1. Settings
    2. Applications
    3. Manage Applications
    4. Select Filter
    5. Select All
    6. Select "Maps" application. It will show the following
    7. To clear recent destinations, select "clear data" button.

    From: http://androidforums.com/eris-suppor...navigator.html

    This will clear al destinations

    Pardon my question for such a simple procedure, but which "settings" are you referring to? On my SG Note 2 my settings take me to a list that includes "Application Manager" which takes me to Downloaded Apps. I can't get to anything similar to your list. I just bought this phone in mid-December (used my Nokia for over 7 years until this one) so I'm wondering if there has been a software update that makes your list dated. No offense intended. Thanks for any help you, or anyone else, may provide.

    there might be two places all your history is saved. one on the phone itself, other on google web history.

    open maps-->menu(3 dots)-->settings-->offline and cache-->[clear all cached ] something something. go figure.

    and go here https://history.google.com/history/settings?hl=en
    login and click "delete all" link on that page

    When in the Application Manager screen, drag the screen from right to left to get to 'Running', then again to 'All'. Maps is not in the 'Downloaded' list because it is in the OS, not downloaded. You will fine 'Maps' in the All list alphabetically.

    The above doesn't work for HTC EVO 4G LTE.....there is no "Applications - Manage" and if I go into cache I can only delete ALL destinations. Like the original poster I only want to selectively delete an erroneous entry. I'm beginning to hate Google Maps Navigation (Beta) which comes loaded on this phone

    Open Maps, options, My Places, swipe right to left to get to Recent, long-press a destination, delete, ok.

    Thanks Groid,
    I've used Google maps since they first introduced it on Android.
    And I never thought to swipe the My Places box.
    I learn something new everyday thanks to the user's on forums like this.

    Thanks again

    I found the maps history, then tapped on the (X) cross beside the unwanted entry, you'll get a dropdown to delete, DELETE same.. You can then delete one by one of the entries that you do not want to keep ~~~ Tooooooo, EASY....

    What worked for me: To delete individual items, go to Maps (not navigation) or from navigation, hit the left arrow at top left to get to maps. On top left there are three bars for the menu, hit it and at the bottom of the menu is settings. Click on maps history. 'X' the individual item you want to delete. Now power your phone all the way down and back up again.
