Good custom map tool This app is good for those who like to create & share custom maps. Many of the features it lacks can be found in Google Maps, which is good reason why Google should never have separated the mapping tools into two applications. However, it needs full offline capability to be really of great use on mobile. No reason map tiles & kmz files can't be stored on device. Most of my maps are in places where data is lacking.
Needs a couple fixes I'm using this to track locations of vehicles at a car lot. There are two things that need to be fixed/added. One is the ability to add images to the points from the app. Another is if you search for a point that was created, it does not pop up in the app. Only in the browser.
Very limited Navigating the map is difficult. Tapping the crosshairs icon doesn't zoom in like it should. You can't change the icons on place markers. In the app there's a "view map legend" option which is a joke since every icon will be the same. It feels like this app was slapped together and abandoned. The My Maps web interface is leagues better.
Still Useless After the most recent update I've come to the conclusion that Google intends for My Maps to be used as a waypoint sharing app only. Unlike the much older version which was great, you can't do anything else with this one. Still fvcking useless.
Why does it need access to my contacts? Last year i traced a map for trip and it was great. Now the app won't open unless I allow it to access contacts. Why? I am not interested in seeing my contacts whereabouts. It should be simple to trace a map and save it offline on my device. Why should it be on cloud? Google please adjust.
Basically useless The functionality of this app is so minimal compared to the web interface it's basically pointless. The app is much easier to use and has a really nice interface. But it lacks essential features such being able to add photos to markers, change line colours, or import data from kml files into a layer. This would be such a good app if it actually allowed you to access the full functionality offered on the web.
