Title: Support importing maps from Google Maps Engine
Post by: tom2356 on September 01, 2013, 12:37:14
this is a essential feature.
for me the most important.
without my google maps POIs within the mapping app
it is worthless for me.
would be nice if this feature gets implemented

What exactly are you looking for? To access your POIs from google maps, make sure that the google myMaps module is enabled (Modules => google myMaps).
Now you can start the "google myMaps Manger", select the google account to use (in case there are two ore more accounts on your device) and select your google map to display.
All POIs from that map are displayed inside Locus then.

See here (http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php/manual:my_maps) for more details.

Hope that answers your question...  ;)

I found workaround to import data from GME. There is little icon on top left corner of a GME which allow you to export points to kml. It's possible to do it also on  Chrome on android. And then you can import kml to locus
