    I have just bought an iPad 2. Experimenting with maps, I dropped a pin in the wrong place and now I cannot delete it. I have read various posts on other sites, but nothing has worked for me so far. Any suggestions, please?

    Peel the page back and click on 'remove pin'

    If you click the blue button, there is an option to remove pin

    Not always the case Chays. I've just tried this and there's no option to remove the pin after touching the blue information button for a RED pin, only for a purple pin.

    Sorry, but when I peel back the page, there is no option to remove pin.

    Can you not just delete the entry in the search box - this usually removes the pin?

    Sorry again, but I cannot find any way of deleting it from the search box. I I touch the address there, it just goes straight to the address without giving any options.

    If you tap on the search box it will show an 'x' and will also show a drop box with recent searches. Tap on the 'x' and the pin should disappear then tap on the map (not the drop box) to get rid of the drop box.

    Hope this helps.
