Remove Location RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to remove a location?  For example I created a new location based on a map and had a typo in the name.  I would like to remove that entry from my location list.

  • If you sent the Preferences.xml file back to the PC and edit it, you can remove the unwanted locations.  You will find them with in the <r     />  tags.  This would be the one to remove for Atlanta, Georgia. Example:

    <r t="Atlanta, Georgia" y="33.7494641923258" x="-84.3914794921875" d="1" lw="1.121931" />

    You would delete from the begining of <r to the end of />. Then save the file and replace the old one and over write it on your phone/pda.

     

    Hope this helps.

  • I assume you are talking about Live Search Craig.  I just went into mine and can't seem to find a way to edit an existing location that was saved.  I'll continue to look.

  • Thanks for looking into it, and yes I am referring to Live Search.

  • If you want to erase all history except the locations that come preloaded (Major US Cities) you can navigate to a file and delete it.  It is located in the directory My Device>Program Files>Live Search> and delete the file named preferences.  I have not figured anyway how to edit one once it is saved.

  • I removed the preferences file, but none of the locations I added were removed. Now what?
