I'm not sure about the Google Maps Mobile Appli, but the GMM I have
in the US takes URLs of KML feeds and then displays that data as
points on the map.
WARNING: Shameless plug alert.
Here's an example, my company - Socialight (http://socialight.com) -
allows you to create location-based Sticky Notes and then export them
in a number of different formats including GeoRSS and KML.
Google Maps now supports both GeoRSS and KML Try throwing a GeoRSS
URL feed into the search field in Gmaps - like this: http://
You can do the same thing on the mobile version, so if we take the
GeoRSS feed of my Sticky Notes from Socialight - which is here:
I then make a handy little tinyurl out of it like so: http://
And then on Google Maps Mobile, I can just go to Search -> Business,
and type in the TinyURL and it will then display all the points on
Hope this helped. Let me know if it works in Japan!
