    Sharing a Route to Google Maps

    Can I create a route on Google Map and share to a friend? How do they load route once they have accessed it? Thankyou

    A cursory Google (oh the irony) returns this

    https://support.google.com/maps/answ...form%3DDesktop

    Does that not help?

      I don't want to share the goggle map - I want to share the directions so they can play the directions in google map on their own handy.

        Why not share the destination and then they click on the Directions button themselves?

          Because I want to send them on a complicated route to avoid some obstacles. They don't know the waypoints that need to be added

              It is my opinion that there should be a way to save the rote as a gpx and for my freind to upload to maps on her handy but I can't find the functionality for this. I can share the place names but they are in Welsh and very long so prone to error when she is typing them in as she is a non native English speaker. I suppose this will have to be the solution.

                Can you not just click on the 'Send directions to my phone' option. You will then be able to pick email/sms if you are logged in to Google and have those set. Then share that link with the person?

                    If you are using Google maps for directions and you click under "options" you can "Send to your phone" including by email, and you get a shortened URL.
                    This is just a shorthand for the points you want to travel between. In fact, the URL when you are using Google Maps is the waypoints, you can copy paste.
