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.

Im sooooo disappointed in this app. I have created my own customised route on "My Maps" which is fantastic however my custom route does not transfer over to Google Maps so you are unable to use the Navigation tool on your customised route. An example for me is that I have just created a 3 week road trip map through the Australian outback, and even though I have pre-planned my route and created my map, I want to be able to use Navigation when Im actually on the road. Ideally, "My Maps" should have a Navigation program installed into it, or "My Maps" maps, should be transferrable into Google Maps to use the Navigation facility there. Full Review

Just installed it, I was able to access my saved My Maps. But right away I noticed that the app has much less functionality than the desktop platform. The entire submenu below the search bar is missing, cannot "undo", "change style", "add photo", even "measure distance"! Perhaps Google didn't realize that the Android app will be used by travelers even more than the desktop/web platform. Also, why on earth this is a separate app from Google Maps? While you're at it Google, go ahead and create a separate app for "Contacts", "Tasks" etc under Gmail. Lord. Full Review

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. Full Review

Does not fetch all the points. I marked 50 points in my PC in app only half or even less are visible on the phone. I tried few times on different maps and different phones and got the same results. The points just don't sync to the mobile App. Lame. Full Review

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. Full Review

Useless app. Tried to use this to plan my trip to see covered bridges in VT. Custom maps can only have 10 stops, and they can't be imported to the regular maps app for turn by turn directions, also you can't see your blue dot in this app to navigate yourself. I wish I could give 0 stars. Full Review

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. Full Review

Why oh why can I not sync a google drive folder as a layer? Think about it: you add a kml file to that folder and BAM it's on your map pre customized. You want to add a picture? Add it to another synced folder and BAM geo data is pulled from your GOOGLE photos/GOOGLE drive account and auto placed on your GOOGLE mymap. You have a GOOGLE form that you send to all your friends that is synced to a GOOGLE sheet, and BAM that GOOGLE sheet is automatically updated in your GOOGLE mymap. Why on [GOOGLE] earth should these things have to be manually synced each time is beyond me, let allow the fact that you have to re customise the layer again. And where is the GOOGLE fusion support? What about a section to pull from your started/labeled places on GOOGLE maps? Add any of these and this app will go from "meh, it's cool, but doesn't really do what I need" to "okay, this is pretty cool!" Thanks for the app! Full Review

Disappointed in Google for making such a poorly made app with very little functionality. Can't search for places to add to the map which normally appear in Google Maps. Why is My Maps different from the Google map. This has the potential to be great travel tool but Google has screwed it up Full Review

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. Full Review

Take all the neat features that My Maps has online. Totally remove them. That about describes this app. Google should not have even wasted their time. You'd think they could do better with an app to access their own stuff!! Full Review

Good but missing something very important. You can't search for or add points by coordinates (decimal degrees). I've tried it on multiple devices. The keyboard disappears and nothing else happens when I press the "enter" button. Full Review

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. Full Review

What is the purpose of this app? I created a map on my laptop and installed this thinking that I will be able to see the map with the markers on it. Noooope. You just see a regular map and your markers are on a separate list. And even if you add a marker from the app, you still can't see it on the map! Full Review

Google canceled My Maps project, so this app has not been updated since May 2016. Therefore this is an half baked app, missing many features of web version like changing item icon or color. Moreover, it got worse with the last update as the links in the description are no longer clickable. My Maps had a great potential, but as the project is canceled, this app does not have a future, so please don't have any expectations. Full Review

So DISSAPOINTED! You can create your own tour however you can't use it to navigate. You would have to navigate from one point to the next on the map but not following your custom route. What is the point of creating a custom route if you can't get the directions for it then. Full Review

Why not google integrate mymaps with the GoogleMaps app. So that it will get all the features of google maps. Also, there is no option for adding photos from mobile app. We can add it it from browser. Please add Photo uploading and navigation feature in mobile app also. Full Review

Very unstable Crashes all the time. Somewhat cumbersome to use. Limited functionality as other reviews pointed out. Bummer, because it could be extremely useful if it worked. Please don't give up on it Google! Full Review

A very good idea but your team do not work to optimize the app . In the mobile app you cannot change the colors of the pins, you can only do it in the webpage. Furthermore in the app you do not have a refresh button . For example if you login in the webpage and do a change in the color of the pin and then you go and see your smartphone it will not have sync . Because there is not sync button your app syncs only when you close the app and then you reopen it . Finally you have problems and your last update is too old . You need to work and update the app more often. Full Review

What's the point? I already have loads of stars all over Google Maps from my travels. So why should I have to download an additional App that doesn't even recognize all of the locations I've starred over the years. Should simply be a maps feature. Full Review

Cool idea 2 things that this app could perhaps benefit from ill state one i feel is urgent first, 1 the ability to draw a line without the line automatically bending in accordance with the curvature of the earth (i think thats why it happens??) I need straight lines for references sake. And 2 this is probably an app that could just be intergrated into maps or earth as opposed to being stand alone, because as it is it lacks features. Please tend to this! Thankyou Full Review

Limited functionality Useful features from web/desktop version missing, such as: search for your own points, change color/style of markers. App can essentially only view existing map and add points for further editing in the web version. Full Review

My #starred Maps If I could retrieve my #starred maps around Perth, Western Australia, you would notice the businesses I starred long before it became a feature on #maps . As my time here is limited, I would personally like to make it known to Sergey Brin & Lawrence Page, that I still consider Google as a #TrustedCompany .I'm not strong now as I used to be, I surrender and will cease the rebel in me. Live a long life & die happy. Full Review

I think you should be able to upload your saved places from Google maps. I have a few hundred saved places on Google maps and I am having to punch them in one at a time. But other than that so far it's good. Give an update to you later. Full Review

Don't work properly I use this app on Samsung Galaxy Tab sm-t700. Don't see the pins of selected places on map in My Maps application, only if I open map in Google Maps. Also I can't change the color of pins. The lines don't follow the roads and the separate points are not marked, thus the lines are useless. Very upset with this app :(((( PS: My Maps online works MUCH better! Full Review

Disappointed I read about My Maps and was very excited to create a map for my upcoming vacation. I was disappointed, however, at how difficult it actually is to use.Why does it not ask you what layer you want to add a location to? Instead it just adds it to your most recent layer and I have not been able to figure out how to move a location to a different layer. And why can't you edit the icons within the app? You can only edit them from the full Web version. Great ideas... just not executed well and not user friendly. Full Review

Useless app. Google my maps is already limited. I was hoping the android app would bring better integration with Google maps (my favorite places, navigation as per my route of choice, not googles preference, etc) Full Review

Why is this not integrated in normal Google Map? Especially since this app is so janky. It displays an unlabeled load bar. I've tried to add simple places to my existing maps and it simply doesn't add them, after several attempts. It always jumps to the middle of Mexico. It doesn't sync up with the exact same map on the desktop version. A bunch of places don't even show up. It's literally useless. Full Review

MyMaps allows editing, creating and manipulating locations and markers on Android mobile devices effortlessly but what's the point when the lists and markers stop appearing in the primary GOOGLE MAPS. MyMaps don't allow navigation and GOOGLE MAPS suddenly stop displaying markers from personal maps and without them, they are useless for navigation. GOOGLE, are you listening ? Full Review
