How to import kml to Google Map My Places on nexus7
I have created a KML/KMZ file from other google "My places" map and want to create a custom directions Google Map for my home. But the nexus 7 can't recognize KML files natively. How can I import it to Google My Map/My Places tool?
* The Android maps app doesn't have the option to import.
* If you save the file through Google Maps on your computer, open Web browser and log in maps.google.com using the same account. Click My Places > Create Map > Import > Choose File > Upload, and save the maps. Then launch Google Maps on the tablet, tap on Layers > My Places, and you will see the map with all your way points.
* If the KML file is hosted on website, tap on "Maps" on your N7, Tap in the search bar at the top and Type in the URL of the KML file (include the http://) and then press enter.
