    Question Google Maps

    I travel a good bit for work and pleasure and I would like to use my phone for providing GPS directions. For some of my frequent destinations I would like to use specific routes. For example when making a trip to Philadelphia I prefer to go up through
    Delaware instead of going through DC.

    I tried using Chrome to Phone. I used the link and hit the navigation button, but my phone still wants to take me through DC.

    What I would really like to be able to is save specific routes to certain people.
    Is this possible?
    Cogito ergo Android

    The way I do it is set up a route on Google Maps on a PC web browser and save it. (make sure you are logged in with your Google ID) I put in the way points that I want. (a point in Delaware for you) Then I can open that map on the phone and navigate from the start to the way point, then way point to end. Seems I read that with a recent update, saving a route on the PC would more seamlessly transfer to the phone, but I have not tried it
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?
