Posted on September 25, 2017 by Suresh Kamrushi in General

Here map allows you to set your favorite places but if you want to migrate from Here map it does not allow you to export your favorite places. So here I am showing how you can export data and get imported to google map. Once it is imported to google map you can export and import in any map.

Please follow the below steps to export it:
1. Login to Here map Click.
2. Click the link  “Favourite Place” it will open your favourite places in JSON format. Right click on page and save it as “favorite_places.json“.
