Google Maps will now recall directions to or from your most recently searched-for places when you are logged into your Google account, irrespective of the device you use.

The My Places feature will come in handy for people who want to search now and plan later or for those who find themselves looking up directions to the same place time and time again. "This historical archive of directions results makes it quicker and easier to continue planning later," says Google Maps Software Engineer Tatsuo Nomura in a February 14 blog post. "For example, if you have a few minutes to spare during the day and use your work computer to search for directions from your house to the restaurant where you're meeting friends for dinner, you can easily access those same directions from your home computer via My Places once you're ready to head out. We'll even remember when you've customized your directions by dragging the blue line to your preferred path, and show you that route again."
