How to Find a Location Using Google Maps
First thing first, you can use Google Maps whether you are signed in to your Google account or not. Either way, you can still use its functionality, but if you are signed in, you can save your Map and access it later on or on your mobile if you have synced your Google account to Google Maps Mobile on your mobile phone.
The first thing you'd probably want to do the first time you use Google Maps is to find a specific location. To do this, you simply use Google Maps' search function and enter specific information such as address, city, state, and ZIP. The best way to do this is to enter your search in the following manner:
'Address, city, state' or 'Address, city, ZIP'
You can also find locations using latitude and longitude coordinates. If you have specific coordinates you can enter them as search strings or you can enter random numbers and see if it hits an exact location on Google Maps.
If you're traveling from one to point to another, Google Maps can also give you specific routes with turn-by-turn directions. To do this, you simply enter your beginning location plus the word "to" and the ending destination, after clicking the "Get Directions" button located at the top of the left panel on Google Maps site.
