Need Help Creating a Route In Google Maps - August 24, 2017, 08:55 PM

I create a route (see link below) on my pc, but when i send it to my phone, it doesn't map the route out as i wanted it to be. It just find the regular shortest/fastest path between two point.

How can I create a route and the have it open in google maps so I can start the gps and follow it on my ride?

google maps doesn't transfer a route to phone....
not even one you email to someone else....
it's cruddy, but....it is true....
if you have an Iphone, you can get an app called InRoute....
You have to manually put the route into it, but it will navigate it for you

yeah I exported your map to my phone and it did same thing. Tried disabling GPS and it still did it. That's annoying.

You can create a route under Google "My Maps" on your PC and then access that map under Google "My Maps" on your phone and the map will appear just as you created it. You can also share the map with a link and when someone opens the link it will appear as you created it. I don't think it will route. You can follow it just like you would a track. I always use tracks versus routes so I'm not sure on that point.

Access My Maps on PC:
Click on upper left menu button bars
Click on Your Places
Click on Maps
Click on Create Map (at bottom of menu)

Create the map using the "Draw a Line" option. Then just click your start point and then click along the route you want to take at points close enough that it will draw the route on the streets you want to take. When you get to the end double click the final point and the route is created. Name the map something you'll remember.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

Don't think so. As I said I use tracks for anything and everything that's not designed just to get from point A to point B the fastest way possible. My Garmin basecamp collection is nothing but thousands of tracks. That way I don't have to worry about map compatibility, re-routing causing issues, using google my maps, etc. Just put the bike on the line and go.
