    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?

    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.

    Yes stantheman, you are the man! Those pins have been driving me crazy. Thank you.

    Now for your next trick, what do I have to tap to bring up a scale? hehehe
    You know, those more or less essential things which all maps have.
    All, that is, except those which come on "user-friendly" Apple devices.

    Now it just has 2 pins that when clicked on the blue info icon, and giving a remove pin option, it does nothing, dreaded pins still there. I have tried deleting using x in search bar, they, re still there

    I'm having the same problem with a green pin. I have removed red, blue and purple pins with instructions given on this forum. But for the green one no delete or remove option comes up anywhere. And I don't know why it is green. I put it originally in a random spot to try out directions.

    I was so glad to find this answer as the dreaded red pin was plaguing my map as well and this was the fix for me. Thanks so much!
