    Tutorial: Creating custom maps using Google Maps

    This is just a quicky version but should be enough for the average guy to make his own maps using Google Maps:

    Register an account with Google maps.
    Login and find your spot on the map you want to save.
    Click the "My Places" button
    Click "Create Map" button shown here:



    Once you create the map you will get a set of 3 tools tabs at the top for drawing lines, placing pins, etc shown here:



    After you get your lines drawn you can then edit them with names/colors size things like that.



    pretty basic once you do a couple. Make sure you SAVE it once your done editing. Good luck

    If you created an account and are logged in try to hit the "My Places" Icon at the top and it should bring up the red "Create Map" button once you have located the spot on the map you want to save.
