I need a replacement for Google Maps that lets me store custom maps and locations.

I heavily use Google Maps, and specifically its "My Maps" functionality to store maps of places I want to visit, plan holidays, store friends and family addresses, places I've been etc. etc.
The update of Google Maps last year killed the my maps functionality. I rolled back to "Classic Maps" because I rely on this feature a lot, but well over 6 months down the line there is no sign Google is going to put this functionality back in, and I suspect its very likely they'll remove the option to keep using the classic maps soon.
I was very disappointed when Google killed Reader last year, but then discovered Feedly which is a much better RSS reader than GReader ever was. Can you recommend alternative customised maps platform that I can use on the Web and my Android smartphone - hopefully they may be even better than the old Google Maps. If there is a distance measurement tool (as there is in classic Gmaps but not new Gmaps) that would be a bonus.
