Or, similar to the above, In Google Maps next to the "Send to your phone button" is a button for "Share link" Copy the web address it provides and Paste it into the web site Maps to GPX https://mapstogpx.com/ Press the "Let's Go" button and a GPX file will be downloaded to your PC.

My Maps is neither phased out or shut down. But it is now a completely separate product. You can still use it to plot and share routes. But you need to start at MyMaps (https://www.google.com/maps) not regular Google Maps to access it: there is no way (AFAIK) to transfer a plotted route from Google Maps to My Maps.

Once you've chosen a route, after you click on "Details", you have a couple of options: Send to your phone Depending on your device, you can get the directions sent to the Google Maps on your phone, sent to email, or sent via text Share a link code to embed a map on a web page Print with or without mini maps It seems to me that the simplest option for ...

After much testing I found the following to work: Using linking or copying, get the PC created route to a mobile device (e.g. via text). When you open it, you will see what the OP describes: the route with a Preview but no "Start" driving feature. Now, in order to get a "Start" button and commence navigation: Click on the vertical ellipsis in Maps with ...

I see what you mean. It seems that "My Maps" is really for creating static maps to share/embed. It's not "dynamic" in the sense of getting directions, traffic, etc. I believe it has to do with the "layers" you can add to the map. The underlying map is just a layer of it's own and provides structure to the other stuff you add to it. To give directions you ...

This is indeed a strange place to send you for a question like that! However - you can find Google's policies for non-profit use here: https://www.google.com/permissions/geoguidelines.html I'm not brave enough to interpret them for you, but hopefully you can find the information you need there. fyi, in case you come to the conclusion that you cannot ...

I've done something similar without any coding and just through My Maps by configuring some of the settings available with My Maps If you allow the Map to be publicly accessible through the Link Sharing settings, you can embed it on other web pages. The location markers within your map can then be made to be clickable links within the embedded map ...

Use the code below (replace your my maps ID and your API key) <html> <head> <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no"> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Embedded Map</title> <style> html, body, #map-canvas { height: 100%; margin: 0px; padding: 0px ...

I have not heard of Maps offering Forms like that. You could build a solution using a Google Form, and a script that edits the map when the form is submitted.

Down in the lower-right corner there should be a scale indicator (in km). Just click it. Then your units will switch to miles. Click again to switch back. If you're zoomed in, it'll change the units (feet vs. meters) but it works the same.
