My Maps

The My Maps feature for Google Maps for mobile allows you to access personalized, annotated, and customized maps that you've created in Google Maps from your computer.

While at home, create a custom map for your city or vacation destination with interesting places like restaurants and shops, and add lines and shapes for bike routes or other areas you'd like to visit. Then, you can view this personalized map from your phone while you're on the go to get quick driving directions or just see where you want to go next.
