Google Maps is the most notable mapping application on the market, thanks to a slew of features, lightning-fast traffic updates, and the fact that it’s Google. Surprisingly, there’s one route in Google Maps that isn’t used nearly as much as it should be because Google doesn’t make it particularly easy to use: the option to save a route.

If you’re planning a trip, knowing how to bookmark a route in Google Maps can come in handy. This function not only helps you plan your trip efficiently, but it can also help you avoid getting lost along the route. You can even download maps to view offline, so you won’t need an internet connection to figure out where you’re going.

In this article, we’ll show you how to save a route in Google Maps on your phone and computer. We’ll also address some frequently asked questions about Google Maps routes.

Here’s how you do it:

Fill in your Starting Location Or Pin Location

Decide how you’ll get there (walking, driving, cycling, etc.). You can select items, place markers, draw lines, measure distances, and then name and describe the map once you’re finished. You can send a link or upload it to Google Drive and share it with anybody you choose. Distances between locations are measured. The ability to measure distances and regions is another essential feature in Google Maps.

If you’re travelling by car, for example, you can use this function to plan your gasoline use. Move the mouse cursor to the location and click where you wish to start the measurement. Blue will be used to highlight the distance.

The route on Google Maps choices allow you to further tailor your route. Tap Directions, then More, and then Route options on Android. For example, you can select to avoid tolls and motorways. If you’re using a PC to plan your route, go to Directions, then Options.  To avoid tolls or highways, tick the boxes next to them.

Frequently asked questions

Is it true that my route in Google Maps has an expiration date?

The route you save in Google Maps on your phone or tablet has a 30-day expiration date. As a result, we recommend arranging your route in the same month as your trip. Routes, on the other hand, are often simple to construct and save, so even if one expires, you can recreate it in a matter of minutes.
