Google My Maps and Map Plus

First, let me start off by saying what a great app this is. I have been looking for an app which will allow me to pre-plan out a road trip. I wanted something which would allow me to map out a path, and then show my GPS position relative to the path, as well as guide me back onto the path when I get off track. This app seems near perfect. I have figured out how to export the google my maps to a KMZ file and then save that file on my iphone and open it up in my maps.

The issue I seem to have is if I do this for two different trips both trips show up on the same map. When you click on the Edit button I can see the two things I imported under favorites. I guess I am confused about the ablity to make different "trips maps" on google, or some other computer editor, then be able to import them with complete offline info so that when I am in the middle of a cornfield in illinois I can get back to the highway.

Again great app.

Thanks.

After imported, you can change visibility of any item in Favorites, hide the one you do not want to see, or show one on the map when needed. You can either do this by select them on map and choose hide, or select them in favorite and choose hide/show.

For different trips, it is suggested to manage them with folders. You can create folders for different trips in Favorites, and move all items of the same trip to the same folder. You can choose the root folder to import a KML into, or open the folder first and import KML there. What's more, you can long press the folder name in Favorites (non-editing mode) and choose to "Show it on the Map" or "Hide it from the map", which would affect all subitems and subfolders belong to it.

After imported from KML/KMZ/GPX, items are saved locally which could be viewed without Internet connection. If you want the underneath base map layer (of road or satellite) to be viewed offline, you need to add a map source of that map first, and download content for a custom specified region from that map source, which could be viewed offline later.

I can see the ability to show/hide individual items within favorites. But on a large time there could be a hundred items to do this to. It would be great if you had the option to show/hide at the folder level. This way you could load or unload a whole folder full of items onto a map.

If you can do this now, I think that I am missing how this is done. Thanks for the quick reply on my questions as well.

duh, long press on the folder that will allow you to show/hide a folder.

Thanks I was able to figure it out after re-reading your post

Besides long press to show/hide at folder level, you can also toggle to "Select Mode" in Favorites, by tapping the "Select" button on the toolbar at the bottom of the screen, then you can choose folders and items you want to show/hide, tap the "operation" button and choose "Show On Map" or "Hide From Map" to do the bulk editing.
