Import POI into Google Maps

 

Have I missed this on here?

I just downloaded my POIs into Google Maps.
I also downloaded my Routes into Google Maps but have not found how to route them.

*Go to your PC. Open Google Maps and be sure to sign in so it will link to your phone and tablet.
*In the upper left click on the three bars
*Click on My Maps
*In the right corner click on Create
*Click on Import
*Now drag your CSV, XLSX, KML, or GPX file to the box, or you can select a file from your computer
*After each one opens be sure and name your map so you will know what files are in it.

I did the route the same way but so far it only shows as a route and I have not found how to use it.

Now go to your tablet or phone
*Open Google Maps
*In left corner click the three bars
*Open Your Places
*Scroll down to Maps

They are there and have your POIs in them.

I will work more to see what I am missing.

Works great, Just in time for a road trip!! Any idea on how to change icons?

Change icon, My Maps

I belive this tutorial will explain how the icons can be changed isurvey:

Google has some icons to chose from, custom icon is posssible to chose both from published icons from the internet and for some days now its possible to upload custom icons directly from your computer.
