We are going furniture shopping today and I want to use Google Maps to mark the five stores we want to visit. But each time I enter an address, Gmaps throws away the placemark for the previous address.

Any ideas about a solution?

Just seen your post, which is now some 3 weeks old. And I'm travelling for next 16 days so not able to use my PC. But checking out the Maps app on this iPad I have the same problem. I see that I can 'drop a pin' at a location. Then I can open a dialog by tapping the 'i' icon, and then save it as a bookmark. I thought maybe that would offer a solution, by later re-opening these bookmarks. But the only options I get when doing so are Directions To/From.

Seems a pretty basic design flaw to me. Reckon I'd use GE Placemarks instead!

I figured it out later that day. If you are logged in to Google you can access a feature called "My Maps".

Once logged in, one of the options is to save a placemark to My Maps. Pretty simple, really.
