Google Maps has a host of new features, including two I’ve been wanting for a long, long time from any of the map services: being able to change your route and adding waypoints.
There have been many times I’ve looked at a map route and decided I could make better time going around a portion of it or wanted to make a couple of stops along the way. Normally I had to work around this by creating multiple routes.
Now you can just add stops to your route and/or click and drag the route to new locations. Suh-weeeeeet!
