New Delhi: In what can be called as an addition to the field of technology, the web mapping service of Google will allow you to plan your road trips in a better way.

Users can now use Google Maps on their phones to navigate their way to a particular place while taking several breaks.

However, it comes with a restriction that you can plan your trip and set pit stops only on the desktop version of Google Maps.

 

Start by selecting an origin and destination and then go on adding points on the way that have to be covered in the trip. Following this, the map will automatically generate a route as per your preference.

If you are familiar with the desktop version of Google Maps, then you can send the directions to your phone using the "send to phone'' option.

 

Google might respond by saying that this option is not available and for that, you need to copy the URL of the route and mail it to yourself so that it can be accessed on the phone.

You can make use of this useful trick while heading back to your place and at the same time drop people off on the way.
