This answer was rated:

I have a samsung galaxy S7 edge and have the latest google maps 4.3 downloaded. I wish to bike from my home base via a rather circuitous route stopping several times to a destination. Can you please tell me what are the steps to set this map up. I have tried looking at all the help pages and have not managed to do it.

no I don't

When you start up the Google Maps app on your phone and search for a location, tap the options button (the one with three dots in the top right corner) to reveal an ‘Add stop’ function. This allows you to look up additional stops and then charts a route for you, with cycle route directions.

sorry you will have to give me fuller instructions. I do not understand. I want to start from home then visit about 5 points before reaching my destination. Please give a step by step guide as to what to do

Are you still on my case?

Which part of the instructions are you having difficulty with?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok. I go to google maps. It shows me I am at home. The 3 lines in the top right are not there.I hit the blue button bottom right. Choose destination comes up. I choose "choose on map". I move to my destination by moving the map around and click on it and it shows me the route but I do not want to go this routs. I want to go a circuitous route which is longer and involves 5 stops. What have I done wrong?

You need to add some waypoints along the route to direct your route through those points.

Can you see the ‘Add stop’ option?

I have the add stop option but the route shown is not the route I want to take

Ok, then you will need to add additional points along the route so that the app can learn the route you want to take.
