Why doesn't my custom map appear for relevant queries & why don't the loaded images display on my mobile device? Alternate Instinct 7/11/12 5:54 PM

Hi

I have created a map identifying a number of points of historic relevance.  The map is named [kingsland heritage walking map] and privacy is set as 'public'.  My initial question is - What am unable to search out my map on maps.google.co.nz?

Another issue I have is that the photos that are included to not appear when I browse the map using my mobile device but do when using my PC.

Any assistance will be appreciated!

Thanks - G

Google Maps' custom maps are not searchable, Google removed that functionality back in 2009.

The URL of the images in the desktop view shows some funny encoding of the blank space character, I wonder if there is a problem with the use of blank spaces in the filename.
Try changing the filename avoiding using blank spaces and see if it solves the problem.

@Alternate Instinct:
l'm able to replicate the issue not getting embedded photos of place markers of a map of GoogleMaps/MyPlaces shown through the Google Maps App for Android - not only with your map and its photos but other sample maps I created as well.

But you should know the Android can show the photos if using the andorid browser instead the Maps App.
This means it's an issue of the Maps App only.

I'm now going to escalate this Maps App issue to the GoogleMaps team.
Best Regards
