It's in the settings (settings page 2 > edit saved places > Home ) from there you can edit address/number/icon
Then just click 'Done' once you have finished

Its always a good idea not to set it to the exact address, always set it to a few streets away or a landmark near your home.

Completely agree with this, I think mine is just set for the area I live in, because once you get to a certain point around your home (unless you've just moved and know nothing about where it is) so 99.99% of the time you know how to get back from that certain point...

never see the point of setting home in the sat nav cos i know where i live to pretty much a radius of, well, London.

Plus, i've never wanted anyone who nicks my car to know where I live either!

Had mine set for the Pub in the next Village.
A bit dodgy setting it for too close to home. :-
The b-ggers nick your car in London for example, drive down to your home and raid the place, knowing that you won't be there, cos you don't have a car.

Depends on your situation, mines a co car so could be miles away from home. Need to know usually best way back to motorway, once on it cancel the route.
