    Locate points of interest and save them under Google "My Maps". You’ll never lose the saved viewpoints. When you need to use them, download the viewpoints to your GPS app.

    When you travel and are looking for places to go, you would search the Internet.
    Previously, after you found a place, you'd have to look it up again in a GPS app. If it wasn't found, you'd have to get the address and enter it.
    Now you don't have to do that. After you find your spots, you just need to locate them in Google "My Maps" and download directly to your GPS app.
    That's so easy, right?

    1. Upload GPS Favorites to https://www.google.com/maps/d/.
    2. Download My Maps Points to GPS Favorites.
    3. All Map Points saved at My Maps - no accidental loss from GPS software.
    4. Manage/maintain Map Points at My Maps or within VIEWPOINTS App.
    5. Add supplemental information to Map Points via Google Places API (eg. Phone, Address).
    6. Transfer Favorites between supported GPS software.

    Supported GPS Apps
    Locus Map, Sygic GPS Navigation, MapFactor: GPS Navigation, MAPS.ME Pro, GPS Navigation BE-ON-ROAD, Naviking N3(Taiwan), LocalKing 3D(Taiwan), PAPAGO! Mobile S1(Taiwan).

    1. Sign in with your Google Account and go to https://www.google.com/maps/d/.
    2. Upload GPS Favorites to My Maps. Locations will be created in a new map.
    3. Create a New Map on My Maps and create some Map Points, then download to GPS Favorites.
    4. Clicking Name in Map List opens Map Detail and show buttons: Close/Copy To/Download/Delete.
    5. It is recommended to maintain Maps and Map Points on My Maps on desktop, not on phone.

    1. My Maps is a Google Service at: https://www.google.com/maps/d/.
    2. My Maps can also be found in search for My Maps at Google.com.
    3. New Map creation speed may be limited by My Maps, it is limited by Google.
    4. Beginning with Android 4.4.2, Apps will not have permission to read SD card data. For best results, store map data on internal memory; not on SD card.
    5. After downloading Map Points, close GPS software completely and then enter GPS software Favorites.
