Hi Product Hunters! Let me introduce you a brand new travel website - Sygic Maps (https://maps.sygic.com). We have turned the original travel planner Sygic Travel (https://www.producthunt.com/post...) into Sygic Maps and as the name suggests, the planner is now built around the map. Unlike other online maps, Sygic Maps displays places of interest directly on the map, making trip planning and navigation easier than ever. Thanks to its integrated itinerary maker, you can build a day-by-day trip plan or just save interesting places for later. Planned trips and favorite places can be synced directly with the Sygic Travel app. The website also features a handy travel guide for more than 10,000 destinations, photo galleries, 360° videos, hotel search, recommended tours and tickets and web route planner - an essential feature that allows users to plan and share their route comfortably on a computer and then send it to their Sygic GPS Navigation App for mobile. Feel free to ask us anything! We also appreciate any feedback or suggestions.

I used Google My Maps for this for my recent trip to London, but I like the focus here. Reminds me RoadTripper.

Looks great! The domain + subdomain seems kind of impossible to remember though.

Just yesterday I was looking for a new maps alternative to try and break away from Google. I stumbled upon Sygic but didn't give it a fair shot so now that it's here I tried again and I have to say, it's better than I expected. I am currently travelling in Slovenia so I guess it's not the most used country for the moment. Anyhow, there are quite a few things that I like but I think there's definitely room for improvement. I would love to be able to see a satellite view(I use it often to know if where I'm going there's parking or other features that are not on the map), it's important that I can at least suggest adding/removing tags. Here many waterfalls are categorised only as that, while I think they should have at least the sightseeing tag too. It's the first tag in your search box, if I use it and this great places don't appear I will just think that you are very bad and move on(that's what happened yesterday). Reviewing is as painless as it gets which is nice.

Last but quite amazing if possible, would be a way to import lists from google maps or other services. I have over 600 stars on google maps which make it quite complex to move away. Having an export would be great too.

Pros:

Pretty good database of locations.

I like the tag search

It's pretty fast

It's easy to pull images from Flickr/Wikimedia to add

Cons:

Lots of places still don't have photos and have only one tag which makes them hard to discover

No satellite view

Very few reviews

Hi Simone, Thank you for such a great feedback. We are working hard on improving our content, it is our number 1 priority. We should add satellite view shortly. I believe that importing lists from Google Maps is a bit tricky because of legal reasons, but I will discuss it with my colleagues. Have a great trip in Slovenia!
Awesome! Can't wait to use this on my next trip.
