Google Maps Adds A Really Neat New Feature-"Draggable Driving Directions!"


Google Maps now lets you choose your route and add destinations!

Now try it yourself!

Check out this route from LGA to 770 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn.

Google maps by default takes you on the Grand Central West to the congested BQE.

Let’s say you want to go on the Jackie Robinson instead. Just put your mouse at the beginning of the route and a white square will show up saying “Drag to change route.” Drag the box to the right about an inch to force the route onto the Grand Central West. Google will now automatically reroute you over the Jackie Robinson.

You can right click on the Start/pause/end points to remove them. Additionally you can right click anywhere on the map to add a new destination, or to add an origin if you have removed all start/stop points.

Pretty cool, no?
