On the day or time, you want to leave, grab your phone and tap the shortcut. You will immediately see the route description in Maps so that you can leave immediately. You can create a shortcut for routes by car, public transport, bicycle and on foot.

You can also choose to add an extra stop to the route via points 1 to 3 or search along a route. Adding an extra stop is useful if, for example, you want to visit a place of interest along the way, and you use searching along a route if you are looking for a restaurant on the route to grab a bite to eat after a long drive.
