Export Google Maps Route to KML/GPX
Since Google pulled the plug on Google Maps Classic, I'm reluctantly moving to its Google Maps New application.
However, I didn't find how to export a route to a GPX or KML file so it can be copied onto my smartphone.
Can it do this? If not, is there a third-party solution?
GPS Visualizer will take a Google Map route (url) and convert to .gpx
"You can ignore most the options, just select Gpx and paste the Google Maps URL into the box labelled “provide the URL of a file on the Web” and then press the Convert button"
Seems good still in 2017, even though I've been fiddling with waypoints/destinations in the URL
This isn't working for me, GPSvisualizer says "file not found". I've tried copying the full URL and also the shortened URL from the share button.
Not working for me either, says: "Due to dramatic reductions in Google's quotas, you can no longer convert Google directions URLs unless you supply your own API key. See http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/misc/google_api_keys.html for more information."
Yes google changed the terms on 11th June 2018. https://developers.google.com/maps/billing/important-updates and the 16th July 2018 is the active date for this, you are seeing the result of the changes.
