Handling detours using Google Maps

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.
