Maps has now made it easier to get directions to and from anywhere that the GPS can locate. After searching for the address of your specific location or your current place and tapping the screen, a purple pin will drop. This will give you the option of getting directions to the pin or from the pin, or even sharing your location via e-mail, text or Tweet. If you want to drop a pin anywhere, click the bottom-right corner and hit “Drop Pin” (or “Replace Pin,” if you’ve already got one on the map). That way, you can drop a pin anywhere on the map, not just where you’ve searched.
