Import points-of-interest in Magic Earth

iOS


Magic Earth accepts the import of .kml and .kmz files. To import your own list of points-of-interest:

1. Send the .kml or .kmz file via email, and tap on the attachment. Tap on Open in “Magic Earth”

2. At this point, Magic Earth starts and the following message is displayed: ‘Import “name.kml” file? No / Yes’. Tap Yes.

The imported points-of-interest are displayed as a new category at the end of the list in Search > Points of Interest menu.


Android


Magic Earth accepts the import of .kml and .kmz files. To import your own list of points-of-interest:

1. Tap on the .kml or .kmz file (you can open it from your mail or copy it to your documents on the phone) and a list with all the navigation apps will be displayed. If Magic Earth is not automatically selected, please select it from the list.

* On some versions of Android you might not see the list of navigation apps. In this case, learn how you can import .kml files manually.

2. At this point, Magic Earth starts and the following message is displayed: ‘Import “name.kml” file? Yes/ No’. Tap Yes.

The imported points-of-interest are displayed as a new category at the end of the list in Search > Points of interest menu.

You can also use your own icon for the Points-of-interest (POIs) that you import in Magic Earth on Android.

For this, please import your icon together with the Points-of-interest. All you need to do is add a file with the same name as the KML file

If you wish to import other POIs at a later time, you can add a new KML file, use the same name for the *.kml file as before and the new POIs will be added to the previous ones.
