New Google Maps Features Help You Plan Your Next Road Trip

Planning road trips in India just became a little easier. With the latest update on Google Maps on Android (coming soon to iOS), now you can plan your road trip with multi-stop directions.


Just open the app, enter a destination, tap the corner menu, and then click “Add stop”. To rearrange the order of your stops, tap and hold the three dot menu to the left of “Add stop” and drag it to the position you want – you can even search for types of places like petrol pumps, ATMs or restaurants like you normally search. You can add as many stops as like and once you’re done, tap “Finished” and your multi-stop routing is complete. When you enter navigation mode you’ll have the same seamless driving experience you’re used to, whether you’re running errands or hoping beaches in Goa.


A lot of the fun of traveling is the memories created while exploring new places with friends, family or even solo. Pictures are a traditional way to remember those moments, but now with “Your Timeline”, users on Android can preserve their travel memories and info in a new way. Google Maps users that have the Location History enabled can open Your Timeline, select a date from their recent vacation or everyday life and add notes to help remember what they did that day—or save important notes for later.


Sanket Gupta, Product Manager, Google Maps, said, “No matter where your travels take you this monsoon season and beyond, these new Google Maps features will get you there and help keep track of all the memories you make along the way.”
