This is the Single Greatest Tool for Planning Your Next Road Trip

Google maps has a hidden function that makes planning your next road trip a breeze. Here's how to use it.

I have planned so many road trips in the past… trips across Canada from West to East, East to West, South to North, across the United States from New York to California, around the entire island of Iceland – twice – but as I’m planning for a road trip around the southwest of the US, I’m literally just¬†learning how critical this google maps feature is!

Here’s how to use it.

Step One: Sign into your google account so you can save changes.
