View past Galaxy S8 map app addresses

I use the Maps app within my Samsung Galaxy S8 quite often.

How can I go back and view the past addresses that I have entered into the Maps app?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What mapping tool is driving that? Google Maps or some other mapping software (e.g., TomTom, Waze)?

If Google Maps is on the back end of your default Maps app, then you should look at the location history on the app.

On your Samsung Galaxy smartphone:
Touch on Home screen, then go to Menu.
Tap on Settings.
Tap on Privacy & Safety.
Tap on Location.
Tap on Google Location History.

This is assuming that you have a Google account and have location services enabled. If you have this disabled (like I do), map history isn't saved.

It is not about location history. Instead, it is about search history inside Google Map app.

Sign on to a Chrome Browser with your Google account.

Goto the link below.

https://myactivity.google.com/myactivity

Click + button before "According to Date and Product…" and select Google Map and you can also set a date range to make a short list.

Afterwards, you will see a list of searches made in Google Map under "Search Web & App".

I'm not trying to save map history.

The only thing that I want to be able to access or to look at is a list of past addresses that I have used within Google maps so that later on when I need to travel to the same places I will be able to look at past history and quickly select the address of where I want to go.

How can this be done?

Only the recent searches for locations and all visited locations can be easily available within Google Map.

You need to go to the link below if the searches are not recent.
