Map URLs are long. For example, the Google Maps link to San Diego looks like this:
Try tweeting or texting this - not a lot of fun. An xm.my URL of San Diego looks like this:
That's 17 characters - short enough to type, text, tweet, post, and even spell or scribble down. And you can add your own description and message to the map.
No need to sign up - create short map links right away in three easy steps: choose a location - add a name - post your map.
If you want to link to the map of an airport, you don't need to create a short map link - we've already done that for you. Just take the 3-letter-airport code from your ticket or luggage tag, and append it to our home page link.
For example, San Francisco International becomes http://xm.my/SFO, London Heathrow is http://xm.my/LHR, and the Airport on the lovely Islands of the Maledives is http://xm.my/MLE - even one character shorter than "normal" xm.my links.
We've also pre-created short map links for airrips. Simply list all the 3-letter-airport codes that you're travelling through to get an overview map of your whole trip. For example, a for trip from Vienna (VIE) via Geneva (GVA) to Lisbon (LIS) use the following link:
Simply list all the airports, seperated by a dash. You can use as many airports as you like.
