Doesn't work What a lot of reviewers don't seem to know is that you CAN use customized maps in the main Google Maps app - this is an editor for those maps, which you can view in the main app. At least, that's how it's supposed to work. When I created a new map in this app, added a couple markers, and loaded it in the main Maps app, none of the markers show up. They're there, in the legend, but the markers don't show up on the map, which kind of defeats the purpose. Good idea, poor execution.
This app is next to useless on its own Since this app was separated off of the main Maps app, it has become useless. First of all, it never starts zoomed in to a reasonable level for the area with markers - It starts at the entire continent and requries me to zoom in every time I start it. Next, I can't see normal points of interest from maps on my custom maps. It would be MUCH better if my markers could be turned on as a layer in the normal Map application. That way, I could use them with navigation and generally available info like phone numbers/hours/reviews.
Works with maps already created Why is it separate from the map app!! Well the app is pretty useless itself.....but it the function is actually pretty good . when i used it on chrome to plot out all the places i wanted to visit, you can use different pointer and colours to map it out . This app allows me to see what i have already made....i think this app needs an update as i can't plot....or do anything apart from look at the maps i already made!
Please get back Classic Google Maps! I have dozens of starred places in Google Maps, that remain unordered since Google's terrible idea of ending Classic Maps. Now I'm trying to recover from this using new My Maps app, but I can't find any way to this, better that to go one by one and search for it again in My Maps. Is this even possible? Google, please wake up for this maps nonsense, there are thousands of people changing to Bing and Here, due to all your recent "improvements" and I'm probably following
Just Map pins This app alows you to place map pins of key places of interest and save it as a file. That really is it in a nut shell. If you want more function like plotting routes manually etc you must use the Web version such as on a Laptop or PC. I did try doing this on a mobile (Samsung S4) Choosing desktop view but its impossibly jittery and not useable as things just disappear or scroll out of view.
needs integration with google maps agree with all the previous reviews regarding lack of functionality- why is this not integrated with google maps for directions???? I downloaded this app to be able to use and view the custom maps I created for an upcoming trip, but it doesn't seem to allow my city to city step by step directions to be displayed. Review update a month later: I am downgrading my review to one star after realizing that it doesn't save uploaded photos of places, and can't save a map offline for when travelling without a data connection. Also the icons are way too large to allow clear viewing of the map. This app is a prime example of a great idea with poor, poor, poor execution. Google, please spend some money on updating / fixing this!!!
