Let’s say that you’re meeting a friend for bike ride or for a walk in new-to-them area. So that you both know the route you’re going to take before you begin, you can share map and share directions in Google Maps.
Planning a walking or biking route in Google Maps is easy to do. Simply enter your starting place and your destination before then choosing your mode of transportation. If multiple routes are available, you can pick the one you like.
Once you’ve selected a route, you can then share it with others via text, email, or social media messaging. Watch my short video below to learn how to share directions in Google Maps.
On a related note, you can download Google Maps for offline use when you’re traveling in places that have unreliable mobile phone service.
