How do I rename a uploaded route in Google Maps?

Recommended Posts

I have a Samsung Android Galaxy S and I use the app MyTracks to records tracks and upload them to Google Maps. But sometimes I just forget to change the name of the track I save in MyTracks. So when I upload it to Google Maps with MyTracks, it stil has a name like: "2011-06-11 09:22".

How do I change that track name? Clicking it doesnt give me a "change this" option.

I don't own an android phone, but my only logical solution would be to load your route from your phone and then save it (again), this time with the filename you desire. Third party software and Google software don't like to dance together, so it's kind of normal for issues to be occurring :(

I haven't tried the MyTracks app, but you can change the name of Google Maps routes from the web interface on a desktop computer quite easily.

Step 1: Login to your google account and go to maps.google.com

Step 2: Click My Places, and then Click the name of the route that you want to change the name of.

Step 3: Click the Edit button.

Step 4: Rename the route and then click Save, and after that click the Done button.

      I want to internet market for my company website, but I've heard lots of news about search engine optimization and companies like JCPenny getting in trouble for it? Is doing SEO against the law or just unethical? I dont' understand--what is the alternative to SEO if I want to get Google visitors? Is getting the little text ads that i see in my Google mail the same as SEO? can I get in trouble if I do that wrong?

      There's an option to "paste special" in Word, but i don't see it in google docs? Really annoying that when I try to paste it ends up in glittering blink h2 font

      I have a Google Apps account and a regular Gmail account. I want to have Gmail notifier watch both inboxes. Is there a way to do this without merging my inboxes (e.g. forwarding the emails from one to the other?)

      A few days ago I got an email from my provider that my disksspace for my blog reached its limit. And when I asked him what caused this, he told me I have been posting full sized images, instead of resized ones. So, big lesson for me: "Start resizing before posting/blogging". On my laptop at home, and on my xp machine at work, this isnt a problem. But I am also a heavy "Wordpress for Android" user.
      So the question is, how do I resize an image to at least 50% of the original quality on my Android?
