In this video you access “my Maps” in the 3 dot menu. I have no such selection in my menu. Can you advise or help please?

Thanks

Hello Don,

Are you using a computer? And, what Browser? I am using Chrome in the video. Actually it’s not a 3 “dot” menu, it’s a 3 line menu in the upper left. 

Ah – maybe you’re talking about the fact that the menu has changed slightly – instead of the 3-line menu and “My Maps”, it is now 3-line menu, Your Places, Maps. 

Let me know

Yes I am using a computer. You are correct it is a 3 line menu. Ah – I see now that the menu has changed to, Your Places, Maps.

Thank You very much.

I have created maps successfully on my laptop using Chrome. I am not able to correctly find the process to create a map on my iPhone or iPad using the Google Maps app nor using the Safari browser. Is the laptop/Chrome the only way to create My Map?

There is no My Maps app for iOS, and the one on Android is pretty limited.

What works for me on iPad is to open a browser (either Chrome or Safari) and go to Google.com/mymaps. If you’re logged in to your Google account, you should see all your existing maps – tap on one to open and edit. To create a new map, tap the + in the lower right corner.

I need to make a video on that – it’s on my list!

That works! I downloaded Chrome for the iPad and phone. I’ll explore some more but it does the basics for My Maps.
