How to import POIs from Google Maps to Maemo Mapper

This is just one method and I haven't tried it with anything more complicated than a short list of POIs.

  • Go to My Maps in Google Maps and save all the placemarks on a new map.
  • Click the View in Google Earth link, and then save the KML file to your computer.
  • Go to GPS Visualizer and convert the KML file to a GPX file.
  • Save the GPX file to your computer, and then move it onto your N800.
  • In Maemo Mapper choose POI -> Import and import the GPX file.
  • Done (hopefully)
