How To Make A Driving Route

This guide shows you how to make road routes to destinations without an address using Google Maps. Every hike and trip on this site have a Google Map with the parking place allready plotted in, however Google Maps don’t recognize parking places that are outside roads and remote roads as valid destinations when you try to make the route directly from this site using the “More options” menu on the maps. On those remote parking places Google Maps changes my destination to the nearest known attraction, wich becomes totally wrong. When this happens you must instead manually insert the destination in the Google Maps app by memorizing where it is, then reinsert it in the map. Keep reading this guide to see how this is done if you are unfamiliar with making road routes on your mobile phone
