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 slight tweak The button to Navigate to a saved point seems hidden and small. Would like a Navigate button along bottom of screen after selecting a saved point. There's a big button to edit the saved point, but you have to select the name of the saved item then select a tiny button at top to navigate to that point. Save us a screen press and just put a Navigate option right next to the saved point name. Otherwise great app.
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.
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.
