Is there a way to import Google Maps bookmarks into Locus? I found a way to export them from google but it saves them as html file.
import a may maps track:
- go to google my maps
- export to kml
- start locus and import kml
Sorry, should've been more precise: when you open Google Maps, while being logged into your google account, you can see all the places you marked on the map, displayed as yellow stars. I have a quite a number of those and I would like to import them into Locus and use for navigation.
"Google My Maps" allow creation of new markers, but I want to use the ones I added in Google Maps and I couldn't find any option allowing to import them into My Maps?
There's an option in https://www.google.com.au/bookmarks/ to export all bookmarks, but as I said they are exported in html format.
as gynta wrote. The best (and probably only one) is to export data into KMZ/KML file. After that you can import this file as points into Locus via Locus > Menu > Import.
It' seems that is quite complicated to export the starred locations . Please see link below where is described how to export data into KMZ/KML format: http://webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/16177/is-there-a-way-to-export-my-starred-locations-from-google-maps
Anyway I'd like to mention the "My Maps" in Google maps. It enables to create own custom points or tracks in Google Maps and then export it into - see: KML file https://support.google.com/mymaps/answer/3109452?hl=en
I had the same issue and after trying many ways without success, this is the best and quickest one:
I have the same problem and till now the only solution that I found is Gabriele's way posted above.
Is there maybe, two years after the thread was started, a quicker and easier way to do that ?
Maybe a third party POI software which grabs Google maps starred locations....
It would be great if there was an easy way to import starred/saved google map locations. I find myself using Locus more and more but always have to shift over to Google maps because of the way I use saved locations.
I'm still missing a quick solution too. I plan locations for holidays on Google maps and then I want to get them all in locus with just one (a few) clicks.
For single POIs I use GPS Bridge https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=wizzyfx.maps2sygic
it seems that is still possible to use the python script - described at https://webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/16177/is-there-a-way-to-export-my-starred-locations-from-google-maps But it requires to use python and command line.
Unfortunately there seems to be no solution if you use the lists-function of google maps. The Takeout results there in a CSV file with URLs :(
