Google has brought back a feature to Google Maps that was removed some time ago: the ability to view custom maps. Custom maps lets you create your own routes, which can be a way to show a short-cut, optimal route to a place or just a handy trail for a bushwalk.
You can’t create custom Maps in Google Maps, you’ll need the My Maps Android app from Google Play, or you can head to the My Maps website on a desktop. For more on how to create custom maps, check out this video:
The update is rolling out to handsets with Google Maps installed now, if you don’t have Maps installed, get on it now over on Google Play.
