I was able to send direction to my iphone but did not see any way to save it to Favorites. I have an iphone 6 and am running version 10.0.06. Thanks.
Can you change the route that is shown on the map using fingers?
Allen: Maps on both Mac and iOS will often show you multiple routes and then you can click/tap to choose the route.
I was able to send directions and a dropped pin (per your video instructions) to my iPhone 6S. However, when I marked a site as a Favorite in Maps, it did not show up on the iPhone as a Favorite. I probably have some setting turned off on the phone -- any suggestions? Many thanks for the excellent video.
Julie: As long as you are using the same Apple ID on both devices, it should show up.
Thanks for the reply, Gary. Yes, same Apple ID for MacBook and iPhone. Does iCloud Drive need to be activated for Favorites sync to work? It isn't on my devices. Thanks again.
Julie: No, iCloud Drive shouldn't be needed. Just the "Safari" item under iCloud Settings.
Safari is toggled on in iCloud on both. iOS 10.1.1 Sierra 10.12.1. Map Favorites sync doesn't work in either direction, even with a restart of both devices. Suspect it is something related to iCloud. I'll keep trying. Thank you for your help and suggestions.
