Google MApsOne of my pet peeves with Google Maps is that it doesn't remember my home or office location, even though I am signed in. So I have to type it out each time I want to check directions or time of travel with traffic.

Google announced, prematurely - since it is not available yet, that you can now quickly save your home and work locations and quickly search on them by typing "home" or "work" into the directions box in Google Maps.

The feature is not live yet, although it should be soon. Here are screen shots of how it will look:

Save The Location Once:

Google Maps - Home/Work

It Remembers and Autocompletes:

Google Maps - Home/Work

Special Icon On Maps:

Google Maps - Home/Work Icon

Small things like this can be huge time savers.
