My Google Maps Pro

Upgrade to My Maps Pro

My Maps Pro adds features and capabilities to the free version of My Maps that give you even more power. See the My Maps feature comparison.


For individual accounts, My Maps Pro is available for $5 USD per month. You’ll be charged monthly through Google Wallet. You can cancel your subscription at any time (see our purchase policies).

Your maps after upgrading

After you upgrade, you’ll still have access to all of the maps you created in the free version of My Maps. Note that if you’re sharing any of your maps, and you add Pro features (such as layers over the My Maps limit for the free version or custom icons), others can’t edit those maps unless they also have the Pro version.

Upgrade now

Open the My Maps Pro upgrade screen.
Click Upgrade now. It will take you directly to the Google Wallet payment page.
Using Google Wallet, enter your payment information. Check out how to set up Google Wallet if you haven’t done so.
Click Accept and continue.
A confirmation page will explain the new features/limits and how to access your account information in the future. Your page will be refreshed automatically with a prompt window “Welcome to My Maps Pro.”
Can’t upgrade? Check our restricted territories.

Note: This article describes how to upgrade your individual account. You can also get My Maps Pro for your organization. If your company has several users who need My Maps Pro, or if you’re already using Google Apps for Business, we recommend this option
