4. Use Google My Maps

4. Use Google My Maps

A slightly less well known feature of Google is “Google My Maps”, which lets you create and share your own routes and maps.

To do this, download the official Google My Maps app from the Google Play Store.

After starting the app, you’ll be asked to associate the app with a valid Google Account (if you have multiple).

Then you are on the overview screen where your saved maps and routes are displayed.

If you are using Google My Maps for the first time, you will of course receive a message that no maps have yet been created.

To create a new personal route, click the + icon at the bottom right.

It is best to assign a meaningful name to the map or route you would like to create in order to be able to assign it later.

On the next screen, you will see a map of the world and can then use the + symbol to set a new route by freely drawing waypoints with start, intermediate points and end.

Of course, the routes and maps created in this way can also be shared as described above.

Although it is possible via the app on the smartphone easily create your own routes, but the easiest way to create a new route on a tablet or PC, since in our view, the screen of a smartphone is a little too small for it.

Ultimately, it does not matter what device you use to create your maps, as they are linked to your account, and will be available later on any device that you use to log in to your account.
