Open up a new browser window and go to: maps.google.com
Enter the destination of your route.
Click “Get directions” and enter the starting point in the search field. Google maps will show you the projected route.
On the options tab, you can check for regular obstacles :say, tolls. We notice that this route has about four tolls to cross. Also, we can check it for traffic. The working icons will report you any of the places where the route gets more difficult.
Finally, we can check the route for weather. It seems like we’ll have good weather, so we could give it a go.
Google maps has the option of avoiding tolls, so we’ll try an alternative route. This one has also fewer working sports, so it would be faster.
Click the printer icon to get the route with you. You can include also a bigger size of the map along with the instructions themselves. In any case, keep a GPS handy. Have a safe trip!
Result: Congratulations! You have just learned how to set up a route with Google maps.
