Gone are the days of asking annoyed pedestrians or fellow commuters for directions and then ending up exactly where you started. Google Maps has removed the need for this by providing accurate maps that show exactly where you are, the destination that you need to go to, and the route that you need to take in order to get there. Google Maps is something you fire up even when you’re traveling to a place that you know.

If what you want to do is clear the items in your search or location history in Google Maps, it will only take a few moments. Steps To Follow

a) Open Google Maps, swipe in from the left side and then click on Settings.

b) Clicking on Maps history will show you a list of every single place that you have ever navigated to.

c) To remove an item, you can click on the x that is on the right side of the entry.

d) You will need to confirm your choice in the pop up that appears in order to delete the item completely.

e) If you have deleted a search, the option will no longer pop up as a suggested entry when you do make new searches.

f) The same thing applies to routes, the route that you have deleted will not pop up again when you get directions to a location nearby.

What you need to keep in mind is that if you have more than a handful of locations that you need to get rid of, scrolling through a never-ending list of locations that you need to get rid of is not the option that might be one of your choices.
