Save Google Maps routes to use later on any trip

There are many features on Google Maps that can be used on a daily basis to further improve this service. It is not limited to being just a mapping service and can help drivers and users at any time.

One of the most useful features that are available is the possibility to save routes for later use. This is a simple option to use and very practical for anyone who uses Google Maps constantly and recurrently.


Anyone who is used to using Google Maps knows that it’s a unique tool, especially for those who drive. It gives the user the necessary indications to reach their destination, always with the path best suited to what the user wants.

If you use Google Maps to always follow the same path, you have an aid you can use to avoid always looking for the same destination. They can save routes on Maps for later use on any journey.

After searching for the destination and creating a route that they want to use on a recurring basis, they’ll find a Fix button at the bottom, which will save this route for later use. If you choose, you will find in the menu the option to add this route to the main screen.

To use the search that you created later, you can access the option Go, which you can find at the bottom of the Google Maps interface. This area can be expanded and here you will find the entry you created earlier. This should have the name of the searched destination.

To be able to use it, just click on Start, which will enter Google Maps in navigation mode. Of course, the direct shortcut created on the main screen skips these steps and puts the user right in the navigation interface.

This functionality can be used several times, for each of the routes that they use recurrently. It’s another useful and practical way in which you can use this Google service, which joins many others that we’ve already shown you how to use.
