    Can I Move Google maps from my browser onto my android phone?

    I just planned a Route on google maps for tomorrow, the only problem is that I can't use the same map on my phones GPS navigation. I have memorised most of the route but I would really like to be able to open the route on my phone/gps for peace of mind!


    This is the map - https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?saddr...&z=14&lci=bike

    You can't even make custom routes on the google maps mobile app... well unless I just failed to figure it out!

    Are you a member of Google (or Google+)? My bike routes show up on my phone.
    Just looked at your map. Maybe it's different in UK.

    I do this all the time on an android phone. On your computer, be sure you're signed into google using the same account as used on your android phone. Plan a route on google maps, then near the bottom of the directions click "Save to my maps". You can give it a name if you like. Over on your phone, open google maps and navigate to "my places", then click settings, then click "my maps." And you should see the map you created on your computer and saved earlier.
