  • You can use different colors on the map to make places easily identifiable.
  • You can label your features directly on the map.
  • You can import locations from a spreadsheet and last but not least,
  • You can organize your places with layers.
After the upgrade, you will be allowed to avail all the old and new features of My Maps in your maps application. Also, you are not allowed to use the old My Maps application anymore.
