  1. Greeting Programs,

    At the request of someone in another thread here are the instructions for importing created routes from Google maps on PC to your sexy Android phone, to use with Google Maps/Navigation.
    This requires a Google account and logging in on both PC and Android phone.

    On PC -
    After you have done your standard route creating in Google Maps -
    Scroll down to bottom of Destination window
    Click on Save to My Maps
    Click on Create a new map
    Click Collaborate if you want to add a description.

    Ok so youre done on the PC.

    On the phone -
    Go to Google Maps
    Click Layers (The button with the four squares stacked)
    Click My Maps
    Select your map (Will be called directions to ......)
    Click on the arrow in the Dialog box
    Click on Directions
    Click on Get Directions
    Click on Navigate (Blue Arrow)
    And youre done!

    Bear in mind this also requires you to have Text to Speech installed if you havent used Google for Navigating before, but this should work perfectly. You also wont be able to edit the route from the phone but it should auto update if you leave the route.

    Enjoy your newly found navigational abilities my friends!

    The Funk
