Google Maps started off as a navigation tool by Google, and today powers thousands of services, including popular commute app Uber. While Google Maps is hands-down one of the easiest navigation apps to get you from A to B, what if you need to make a few pit stops along the way?
Whether you are running an errand or picking up the kids from school on your way home from work, you can add multiple destinations to Google Maps on Android and make your life a little bit easier every time you travel.
Adding multiple destinations to Google Maps
From the home screen of your Android device, access the apps drawer and open the Google Maps app. Begin by pressing the blue “GO” button on the bottom-right corner of the screen to set up your navigation route.
After picking your current location as the starting point, tap on the blue tab that reads “Choose destination” and enter the location name or address. Once you have entered the destination, go ahead press the three-dot menu button on the top-right corner of the screen.
From the pop-up menu, you will be able to see the option to “Add stop”, so go ahead and tap it to add a new destination to your current route. Use the same method to add even more destinations to your travel route, and you can easily rearrange their order by dragging the three horizontal lines next to them.
Similarly, you can press the “X” icon next to each of the destinations if you choose to remove them from the route. Once you are successfully able to add multiple destinations to Google Maps on Android, hit the “Done” button and press the “Start” button at the bottom-right corner to begin navigation.
