Adjust Your Route on Google Maps

Google Maps just got better (again).

This post on LifeHacker alerted me to another groundbreaking feature on Google Maps: route adjustments. I’ve often thought the routes suggested by most major mapping softwares were subpar, and short of using the beta version of Yahoo Maps to create multi-stop routes (before Google Maps offered it), there was no easy way of adjusting a route. Until now.

Don’t like the route offered by Google Maps? Simply click on the blue line and adjust it accordingly. This is especially nice if you’re pulling up directions for someone else, and the route suggested isn’t the best available.
