Exporting Google Maps to use in Garmin Base Camp

This is a tutorial on how to export maps from Google to use on your Garmin device. I created this tutorial as I found the Open Source Maps weren't complete or address searches didn't work etc. In general you create your route in Google, export it, import into Garmin Base Camp then upload to your Garmin device.

Here are the steps;

-          You will need to create a Google account or sign into it in Google Chrome.

-          Go to this link https://www.google.ca/maps/d/  (the /d/ is important or else you won’t get the black menu bar and "Create a new map")

-          Then “create a new map’

create map

-Select “add directions”

add directions

Save and name the map by clicking on “Untitled Map”. The map will be saved in “drive”

save

Click on the menu to export

export

Export to kmz

export to kmz

In the export box click on “download”

In Base Camp click on ‘file” then “import to my collection”
