It is easy enough using Google Maps to navigate to your destination, but what if you need to detour to find beer or ice cream, or to pick up a friend?
ON A SMARTPHONE
To add destinations to a route in the Google Maps mobile app, first enter your starting point and then your final destination. Then click the three dots in the top-right corner, open the pop-up menu and choose Add Stop. This will allow you to add waypoints on your route without losing sight of your end goal.
ON A PC
To do the same on Google Maps while using a computer, simply enter your departure point and destination, then click the Directions button to show the route to you. On this screen, look for Add Destination to add a waypoint on your journey. You can add as many additional destinations as you like.
