[URL] GPSvisualizer.com/convert_input

http://http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/convert_input allows one to provide the URL of a file on the Web and convert to GPX. On your Android phone (I used Dolphin browser) you can copy the Link URL from Google Maps and paste it into GPSvisualizer. Save the output to your mobile as GPX and import into Locus. You then see the exact same route in Locus as you created in Google Maps.

This means you can use Google Maps to plan and modify your route using only your mobile phone - no PC needed. Although Google maps allows one to download KML file that does not keep the waypoints - it only has the start and end points. GPSvisualizer keeps the waypoints.

Locus does now have navigation but the route is not always the best. Maybe the new server (MapQuest) used for navigation in Locus will be better - I am looking forward to testing it. However this GPSvisualizer tool gives the choice of using Google Maps with its drag and drop flexibility.

Cheers
Tom
