Add Multiple Destinations on Google Maps for Android

new google maps logo Add Multiple Destinations on Google Maps for AndroidPlaning a road trip with friends is a fun thing but not for the person who is driving the car and has to make an ideal route for the journey picking up and dropping every one in the least time.

Google Maps on every android device should solve this problem but it does not allow you to add more than 2 places, a start point and an end point. Which might be uncomfortable if you have to make multiple stops on your way.

The best way to do that without shifting between apps and bolting your phone with useless software is to plan your trip on desktop. Google Maps allows you to add multiple stops on your route and will give you the best route with least of the traffic.

Irrespective of the face that your Mobile Maps app cannot add multiple locations it sure can read one. So all you have to do is once the route is planed on the desktop click the small gear icon on the bottom right of the screen .

    Nice one! been looking for this. thumbs up

  2. Brian says:

    Why is this not a feature of Google maps on android?

  3. Sarah Davis says:

    I Tried all of these steps and they still do not work. It still only shows a route from beginning point to end point. This is EXTREMELY frustrating and makes this app completely useless to me.

    • Lei says:

      It does work. The application shows only the first two points, but if you start navigation, it shows and navigates the FULL route

  4. Jim says:

    I am going to try this today. It looks like it loaded in the phone and is showing the entire route. Great idea.

  5. DR says:

    Not as useful as it could be. The phone app brings up the route, but there’s no option to start navigation. All you end up with is a map that shows your stops marked on it. A good idea undone by poor execution.

  6. SA says:

    And if you come back to the route midway, it directs you to the beginning. Pretty stupid.

  7. Dennis perry says:

    I can’t believe that Google dud not put a option when creating android app to add stops along route . Point a to point b and every time I need to find a place along the way I have to stop that route and enter a new destination, and then do the original route back over again. Alot of tines when I ask for a destination after I am already in route some where it tries to send me in the direction from which I just came the opposite direction of where I am heading. Seems to me google could have put in a little more work when creating there app. Google quit being lazy and get to work

    Great share Ashmeet, thanks a lot. It worked very well, just I had to investigate more to find link (as there was no gear icon in my browser Google Chrome) so I used menu option which comes in form of PAN and I got option to share link. And again I was not sure how to open this link in Google map, but finally I was able to open it by putting link in google search bar and then selection google map app when prompted.

  9. Clive Padayachee says:

    Brilliant stuff Ashmeet. Works perfectly.Thanks for sharing. Saved me a lot of hassle. I also can’t believe Google would leave out such a needed option for off route destinations.

  10. Presto says:

    U can see the full route with route points in the app. But navigation will stop after first route point. Tried this on several of my trips.
    I thought they’ll add this feature at least in the recent update. But disappointed.

  11. Tonya says:

    What a royal pain! The whole point of having it on my phone is so I don’t have to use my computer…can’t change routes easily either. Very disappointed in this app…

  12. tastie says:

    Google Maps on my desktop no longer has option to add more than one destination. Where is the option? This is crap. I can’t believe they have gotten rid of such an important feature!
    WHERE do you have option to add destination??
