Part 2 of 2: Add a stop
Step 1. Touch the bottom of the screen
A menu will appear where you will see basic information about the route, for example, distance, travel time and estimated time of arrival.
Step 2. Touch a stop category
Different icons will appear, such as gas stations, restaurants, cafes, etc. depending on your current location and the time of day. The map will show you a list of nearby locations so you can choose one that belongs to that category.
Currently, there is no method that allows you to add a custom stop or intermediate destinations to a route. If you are going to make multiple stops, you will need to set up a new route for each destination
Step 3. Touch Go next to the desired stop
The map will show a new route to the selected stop and will begin to give you the first directions.
