Google makes it easier for Android users to view custom maps

A custom map you've created for a trip is only useful if you can access it when you need it. Thankfully, Google's bringing back My Maps integration with Android, so it's now easier to view your personalized files on mobile. As you might know, you can use My Maps to plan for hiking, canoeing or even for commuting or daily walks, as it lets you place markers on locations and draw lines or shapes to indicate routes. It also allows you to create layers for different kinds of content and even import geographic data, such as a place's name and coordinates. To view your creations -- or others who have shared theirs with you -- just launch Google Maps on Android. The update has begun rolling out today, so keep an eye out if you're planning for a road trip.
