I am trying to use My Maps on my Galaxy Tab S.  I have downloaded the app and I can access maps I have made on my computer.  I tried making a new map this was successful but I can’t seem to add photos to places I have placed on my map.  Can this be done?  Maps I have made on my computer which have photos attached to places show up OK.

aha! You have discovered the limitations of the My Maps app. You can’t add photos using the app. You should be able to do it on your tablet, but you’ll have to use your browser and go to there.

Let me know how it goes.
