This tool has become more popular than I could have hoped for, Thank you!

Unfortunately it has forced me to remove high-accuracy GPS data by default. While I work on a permanent fix I have a temporary work-around to unblock your use of the service. Most users shouldn't worry since Pokémon works really well without this work-around.

You can now submit your own Google Server API key to get high-accuracy data. Please consider donating to help me pay Google and restore high-accuracy by default (and help me get rid of all these ads).

With this tool you can convert directions made with Google Maps to a format that can be used to simulate playing Pokémon Go on your computer.

This tool is intended for people that for whatever reason are unable to join in the game in any other way. No cheating mkay.

But, how do I get a Google Maps directions link to paste here?

ERROR: You must provide a valid Google API key.

For pinpoint GPS precision a Google API key is now required to mitigate the cost of the Google Services that this webpage relies on. For most users this is not required.

Sounds reasonable, how do I get one?

You need to apply for a API key for Google Maps Directions API.
Also, if you intend on using the elevation feature you must enable the Google Maps Elevation API for this key as well.

  1. 1. Apply for a Key here
  2. 2. Create a new Server API key.
  3. 3. Click save.
  4. 4. Enable the Google Maps Directions API and the Google Maps Elevation API (if required) for your new key.

Congratulations, you can now use your API key.

Your key is kept completely private, never logged anywhere and all traffic is HTTPS encrypted.
