"MY MAPS" on android

With the new update, how does one use "my maps" on an android phone?

It seems they did away with it in the update of "maps"

They just can't leave well enough alone, can they? Mine still has the "my maps" option in the layers tab of my maps though. So I can't help. Just raising my thread count.

You're referring to Google's Maps. Yea, they screwed it up... all part of some grand plan no doubt. After considerable research, I've determined the only solution is to uninstall the updates. It's an all or none proposition as far as I've found.
Settings | Application Manager | Maps | Uninstall updates.

This puts it back to the factory version (with the "My Maps" feature), as it was when you bought your phone. Mine is 2 years old, and I've not had any problems. Just be careful not to install the updates when you get one or several at a time like I've done and had to undo.

Thanks Travis. I feared this.

Hopefully enough people complain and they bring it back.

This was one of the reasons I switched from iPhone.

When i go to "my maps" layer, it says "no maps found".

Does this mean it could load maps... and not need data? that would work MUCH faster on your side of town... or if you plan to go off-grid camping/trekking. Could actually use your phone as a map without service!

Obviously, I haven't gotten the update... so no input here.

I just did what travis told me to do and it worked like a charm.

Are you in the app or on your browser? It doesn't seem to work on my browser (my maps)

The good news is, it seems to work fine, and still has up-to-date information because it's drawing all data real-time from The net. Well, as up-to-date as that is anyway

My Maps aren't cached on the phone, it's just pulling down basically the same data as if you went to"My Places on maps.google.com. But, there is a way to cache a limited amount of area information in Maps. In the old version it's called "Make Available Offline," almost like taking a screenshot but stores more information... I believe it's possible in the new version but may not be as straightforward.

There are a ton of cheap and even free map apps that allow you to do everything offline. For example, I've used MapsWithMe paid version.

In your browser, it's called "My Places." Don't forget you have to be signed in, though. Who knows how long it will be available.
