Can't add a favorite in the Google maps app

This is a discussion on Can't add a favorite in the Google maps app within the Android OS forums, part of the Tech Support Forum category. It simply says "Can't add this place" Some it has pics of, so maybe that is required to do so.

How are you typing the address in Google Maps? Do note that Google Maps may have it incorrect then what it is called locally.

For example, some places in the United States uses the geographic coordinates as the location. So N123W4567 Main Street may be known without a space locally, but to Google the actual address is N123 W4567 Main Street. Notice the added space.

I don't know what you are referring to but you can add a star to the map by " dropping a pin" to do that you press your finger on the map until it shows a pin then tap it again, there should be a slide up screen (from bottom) and in that slide up screen tap the star symbol And a star will be put on the map. if you want to ever remove that star you select it again and tap the star symbol again turning it off and it will disappear

DSL Modem problems
So I've always been with Virgin and I haven't had this problem, it might be that it's a modem limitation or something that's just not possible with DSL. The DSL cable is plugged into the modem and the modem has all the correct lights to tell me that it's working. It's a new locked BT OpenReach...
