No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? nguettler 5/24/13 10:34 PM
I found it incredibly useful to be able to plan trips with multiple destination points using Google Maps and was always frustrated that the mobile app didn't have this feature as well. 

I thought surely Google would update the app eventually, but instead now the new Maps website has eliminated multiple destinations as well?!

Google - please, bring back multiple destinations. It's a great feature used by many. 

Normally you are all about innovation and progress; this is taking a giant step backwards.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Noisette 5/25/13 5:16 AM
Hi, it's very much a work in progress at the moment, a preview, so not all features are there, multiple destinations in directions is one that's missing, though you can manually drag the route to include an extra destination (I know it's not the same though). You can use the send feedback option at the top right to let Google know this is a feature you'd be interested in. 

This help article explains how to opt out if you prefer to use the old version. Keep the invitation mail, you can use that to try again in the future if you wish.

i use it every day at work, hope they bring it back soon
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? treebles 5/26/13 7:20 AM
Jason,
switch back to Classic Maps, there is no way to tell when this functionality will be implemented.
You can always switch back and forth between Classic and New Maps.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Jason Mason 5/26/13 6:48 PM
Ok thanks for the tip
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Jason Mason 5/26/13 6:50 PM
But I still want to use the new maps sooo bad :)

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Robalobadingadonga 5/30/13 10:55 AM
I use the multiple waypoints a lot too! I will have to switch back for now but hope the feature is added soon as new maps looks great!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? soross 5/31/13 8:55 AM
TOTALLY AGREE! I don't want to have to find some workaround
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? skysis 5/31/13 4:19 PM
They put a whole bunch of stuff in the maps that nobody asked for and removed the most important ones. Way to go Google!
But thanks for the old maps Your old maps are still much better! Now if only I could save my routes after changing route preferences. At the moment, when I exclude tollways, the Save to map feature disappears.

Can't agree more. Seriously, first Hangouts with the only intent to force people on Google+ that looks like an half implementation, now this.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? ToniCipriani 6/1/13 4:02 PM
I originally thought it was me not able to find it... didn't realize they actually took it out completely.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Ray Breedveld 6/3/13 11:07 AM
I have the same problem and just thought I was missing something.  It's one of the main features I use on Google Maps - multiple destinations to plan my route ahead of time.  I'll have to go back to the old version to do that for now.  Hope Google puts it back in really soon, as most people I know use the multiple destination option most times they go on Google Maps.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? James Cox 6/3/13 5:31 PM
Agree. need this feature.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Lindsey Graham 6/4/13 2:06 PM
Instead of opting out of the new map, when you need to use the multiple destinations feature just open a new incognito tab and navigate to google maps. It will bring up the old map.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? bud-e 6/5/13 1:43 PM
yeah the multiple destinations is a deal killer for me.   I'm liking the new maps, but not having the same multi-destination functionality is killing me.  I'll be switching back to the old version.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Madogen 6/5/13 2:20 PM
Funny everyone is saying this.  Multiple destinations was the first thing I looked for, right clicking all over the screen and looking for little icons.  Will be good when they introduce this again, but as they say, it is only a beta version.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Frak'e 6/5/13 5:17 PM
Is Apple maps any better?  Could be a big way for apple (maps) to become better then google.

And its so bloody easy to do, there is absolutely no reason to not do it other then lame product marketing or privacy stealing reasons (pushing user account activity so they can data mining your map activities, pushing people to google+, etc...)!  I thought google was different!

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? HarmonyHavoc 6/6/13 11:06 AM
I agree with all that has been said. The multiple destination feature was one of the things I used Google Maps for all the time.  I have to clock my mileage for work and often make several stops on one trip and used the multiple destination feature all the time.  I sent feedback on the new maps regarding this, please bring it back! 
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Madogen 6/8/13 12:18 PM
I think it would be premature to think that Google would remove this feature, especially considering how they are trying to lead the markets.  Simply put, the new google maps is in Beta, and considering all the functionality they have added into the directions, they are probably just working out the best way to do multiple destinations without eating up every shred of your computer resources.  This is a re-build, not a tweak of an old system.
As Noistte said, it's just a matter of time before it comes back.  I have to believe they wouldn't be so foolish as to remove it, just letting us play with it before it goes live.  This is why feedback is so important...they can see what we crave the most, and we NEED out multiple destinations ;)
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Dan Livingston 6/8/13 9:00 PM
Thanks  -- getting to the old maps through the incognito tab was a great tip!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Oliver Diggins 6/9/13 12:49 PM
BTW, you can return to the old maps from the new screen by going to the help and feedback section at the top right of the screen.

I also agree that Google should sort out the multiple destinations, its always been particularly useful.

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Allex Radu 6/10/13 5:39 PM
I bet it will be integrated when they will force everyone to use the new map, now is invitation only. I bet on early 2014.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Sammpath 6/11/13 10:36 AM
I use it a lot. Please add it.
(unknown) 6/11/13 10:10 PM <This message has been deleted.>
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Anonymiter 6/11/13 11:44 PM
This was the first feature I checked for as it was the reason I used Google Maps. I usually paste all my destinations in and then organize them manually for the quickest route. I then create a link and save it for future reference. Even better was being able to save it to My Maps on my Google account and then accessing it on my Android phone. None of these are features I HAVE to have, but they make my life much easier.

I left feedback about it as thats what its there for I assume. Hopefully they hear enough about it to put forth the effort in implementing it again.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? ragonni 6/12/13 12:22 AM
Also the most usefull feature for me to calculate travel expenses at work. Switching back to the old mode until that feature is back again...
But I like the new interface a lot!!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? juniorg 6/13/13 8:20 AM
It is negligent to omit Multiple Destinations.  About as dumb as Apple knocking out Google Maps from the i-Pad.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? jasonglasgow 6/14/13 2:37 PM
It is ridiculous that this feature disappeared.  Please prioritize bringing it back!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? djon41 6/14/13 5:09 PM
I just tried new maps for the first time, and the first thing I tried to do was use multiple destinations.  Alas!!  Please put it back. 

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Christopher Eby 6/16/13 1:52 PM
This is a feature I used often and don't want to loose. Google Maps team, please implement it.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? afaquir 6/16/13 6:18 PM
This is a MUST HAVE feature for me.

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Edward Pichette 6/24/13 6:33 AM
They should bring back multiple destinations. What fun is planning your dream road trip when you can only do two points at a time! This is an epic fail on google and I am wondering if another services is out there I can switch too if they remove the feature and the old map version.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Francisco Saravia 6/25/13 9:20 PM
Agree
I use it everyday. please bring back !!!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Peter DeMaio 6/27/13 1:39 PM
Not sure if you understand that this is in "Beta" mode. You don't have to use the new maps, and they want feedback. They'll probably add multiple destinations in the actual launch. Relax.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? juniorg 6/27/13 4:28 PM
Obviously it is a Beta.  I want multi on the Beta, so I can test multi on the Beta.  It will have a big impact on my feedback.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? ToniCipriani 6/27/13 6:37 PM
So was the original Maps during its inception. It was WAY more function complete than this eye candy wannabe.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Jason Masters 6/30/13 9:00 AM
Can you provide the community a date when the multiple destination feature will return.  I use it all the time to create new bike routes when I'm travelling.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? ehg 6/30/13 11:00 AM
Jason
just return to the classic maps.
The actual preview and its restricted features  are not  intended to replace all we know from the good old  classic maps.
Nobody will tell  us when and with what Features a new GMaps will finally released.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Collin1000 6/30/13 1:42 PM
+1 adding my support for multiple destinations. 
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? njg123 7/2/13 7:37 PM
Agreed
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? David Olphin 7/3/13 8:02 AM
And me its useless without multiple destinations!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Keith Lebel 7/3/13 9:10 AM
I agree with the consensus here- multiple destinations needed. Surely it'll be added when the new version is officially released. ...
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? A. Liu 7/3/13 3:12 PM
I did the exact same thing!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Jeanne O'Brien 7/4/13 11:47 AM
I agree. I use Google Maps to plan house tours and need the multiple destination feature.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Tom Komuro 7/7/13 3:58 PM
Google maps without multi-destination is useless although I understand new Google maps is beta.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? ehg 7/7/13 11:19 PM
Tom you are mistaken.
It isn't beta but a kind of a preview how maps could look in future
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Anonymiter 7/7/13 11:28 PM
It pretty clearly stated it was an open beta when you were invited to opt in, ehg. There really is no point in "previewing" something like this if it really is finished. Hence, beta version. 
Go leave feedback and eventually the developers will have to put the time/effort into integrating multi destinations again. That is unless they're taking an Apple approached and plan to dictate the features to the users.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? ehg 7/8/13 12:46 AM
Hi Anonymiter,
do you mind sharing here the information you got with the invite "clearly stated it was an open beta when you were invited to opt in"?

And would you please take a look onto all the threads where I posted my opinion about the preview of the so called "New Maps" formulating "the "new maps" is a preview only to give some impression how could maps look in future".
Wouldn't you think any of the other top contributors here or just a Googler should have been contradicting me in case I'm so mistaken as you seem believing (or Google should have abandoned my top contributor status here in the forum in the case I'm wrong always and again repeating  "the "new maps" is a preview only to give some impression how maps could  look in future".

However  - each of you guys is free to consider the "preview"  differently as I do: not being a "beta" product.
ehg


Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Graham Schmuland 7/8/13 11:32 PM
The new maps is still more or less a beta. I fully anticipate them adding the multiple features and bug fixes before they make it mandatory for everyone to use. If you dont like it that much, you can always switch back to the old version.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Matt Joosse 7/9/13 6:18 AM
you need to have a route optimizer for small businesses. Ie if a salesman has 20 trips to make in a day, you should have one button to press to show the quickest route by time and distance.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? juniorg 7/9/13 6:30 AM
There is obvious consensus that Multi-Destinations is a major part of what people want from G-Maps.  By omitting Multi from the Beta or Preview version, the designers are missing important feedback on the many ways to make the new Multi more useful than the current version of Multi on Classic G-Maps.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? James Sinohue 7/9/13 12:21 PM
Unfortunately, I won't be able to use the new maps and provide feedback as this feature is critical to my Maps usage.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? kct1975 7/10/13 3:34 PM
I completely agree! While I did not often use the 'multiple destinations' feature, when I did use it, it was very helpful.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? sibuve 7/10/13 4:24 PM
Although i like the new interface of google maps, the interface looks clean with all the 3D stuff..really amazing. This said, i do miss the multiple destinations, even though beta this feature should have been included. Yes, a similar output can be achieved by dragging the routes but this of course isn't nearly the same. Google please add it back, it will also be nice if you could include this to android/ mobile google maps.

"We're excited to share the new Google Maps with you before launching it to the world. Please use the feedback link in the top right corner of the map to help us improve your experience."

This is a beta. It's not what it "could" look like in the future, it's what it is GOING to look like for the masses soon.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? barryhunter 7/13/13 12:04 PM
Yes, well Google arent exactly the best at communication. Their 'marketing' is kinda misleading. 

Its already changed in subtle ways, but no major changes yet. 


Google have said publicly, the are working on improvements to this early version. Its not final (it will never be final anyway - the web never stops evolving). 

etc

That's how Google works, they tweak and tweak. (or rather launch and iterate) 



Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? crupi 7/16/13 3:39 PM
Me, too. I will not be using the New Google maps without the multiple locations feature.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? securitux 7/17/13 5:28 AM
Ditto. New maps are completely useless without multiple directions.. can't even save maps either, at least not that I could tell or was willing to spend time to figure out. Back to classic.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Serge B. Lacroix 7/17/13 9:25 AM
PLEASE:-)
Bring back the multiple destinations very soon, as I use this feature extremely often, like every day, and I miss it very much.
This being said, the new look is very nice, as all that Google does all the time.
Bravo Google, and keep up the good work.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? OMA2k 7/17/13 10:31 AM
Always some smartass has to come in and excuse glaring problems with the oft-repeated phrase "it's just a beta", and also say it in an arrogant fashion ("not sure if you understand this is a beta...").

Well, from experience, most software that lacks features in the beta, end up being almost the same in the final version, feature-wise and sometimes even bug-wise! (hopefully not the case here). Betas are usually feature complete versions just for testing, not incomplete software (that would be an alpha).

A beta should include ALL the functionality of the final version, just not tested enough. That's what a beta is about, testing completed functionality to find bugs.

If it's lacking big features planned for the final version, it's an ALPHA version. And I think that things like multiple destinations and creating links to share maps with friends are two features which are too important to be missing from a beta, which, if they really intended on having in the final version, they'd be available now in the beta so people could test it out.

So it's not a sure thing that the final version will have those features. Stop with the usual "just a beta" excuses. I've seen too many times final versions being practically the same as the beta versions.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? OMA2k 7/17/13 10:56 AM
For now, in addition to using "classic" Google Maps, you can also use https://mapsengine.google.com

You can add multiple destinations there and even save and share maps, but you can't get the paths between the points :-(
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Sean Dawson 7/17/13 3:50 PM
I agree. I use Google maps on a daily basis to plan and route my deliveries for each day. I need the ability to add multiple destinations to the maps and then rearrange the order to find the most logical route. With out this feature, I will be forced to start using MapQuest or Bing.
I love Google, don't force me to abandon you guys. 
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Skywalker56 7/17/13 5:51 PM
Yep... I use the multiple destination function frequently.   Without it google maps is useless.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? GabrielTM 7/17/13 8:01 PM
Me too - multiple destinations is a deal killer just in case anyone at Google is monitoring this thread.  I'm sure it will eventually be added back in, should be pretty easy to implement - but i'm going back to classic until that happens.

I used that feature daily and really loved it!! It really sucks that they have eliminated from this new roll out.  If we don't make enough noise I wonder if they plan to bring it back.  It is a giant step BACKWARDS!!!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Ken Bélanger 7/18/13 9:43 AM

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Jonah Simmons 7/19/13 7:27 AM
definitely a very useful feature. I really hope it comes back as soon as possible. In the mean time, as long as google doesn't get rid of the previous version, you can still use that.

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? justinnnnnnnnn 7/20/13 1:33 PM
Man what a deal breaker.  I used the multiple destination function daily.  Even Mapquest has it!  Google seriously dropped the ball on this one.  By the looks of it I think a lot of people will now be bringing their web traffic and subsequent ad revenue to other mapping sites.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? dangus00 7/20/13 2:12 PM
My wife and I agree. Is google listening?
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? barryhunter 7/20/13 3:38 PM
They are listening. 

But don't expect 'instant' results. It might be a couple months, before they make the next update to the preview.

roadtrippers.com is pretty much Google Maps but full of cool places to visit on road trips. It still supports multi-point trips and is cleaner than Mapquest and all that stuff..
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Surrinder Nayar 7/21/13 11:11 PM

100% agree!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Gite 7/24/13 7:22 AM
a number of other apps do as well (i.e., I use www.cost2drive.com to calculate my fuel costs for road trips and they still allow me to enter multiple stops).

I'm sure Google will eventually roll this out as its such a popular feature - but it is a little disconcerting not seeing it in the initial release.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Krysten Stringer 7/25/13 1:07 PM
I feel the same way.. it was the reason why I preferred Google Maps to all the others. I am going back to the old maps until the multiple destinations feature comes back.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? RMorrisey 7/26/13 11:22 PM
+1. This is a "must-have" feature for me. I opted out because I couldn't plan my current trip without this feature.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Johnny Ho 7/27/13 4:58 AM
Please ensure multiple destinations is one of the features that is prioritised. Without this ability, maps just feels so clunky. Am liking the new feel though however without the feature this is a real deal breaker!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? David Sipp 7/27/13 2:17 PM
Couldn't agree more. I am really put out by the addition of flight info also. I am planning a driving trip spare me the advertising in my face at every mouse click for gods sake.

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Ray Mislock Jr 7/31/13 12:47 PM
One of the most helpful options in the old Google Maps was the ability to get directions for multiple destinations in one itinerary.  For example driving from Pennsylvania to Texas, a two drive or longer for some.  Very disappointing that the new Maps does not have this very helpful feature that allows you to plan a multi-stop journey that takes place over days or weeks.  Now its very user unfriendly and requires that you map each leg of travel separately.  Bummer on you Google !
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Ian Schubert 7/31/13 3:33 PM
Multiple directions is an absolute must for motorcyclists who plan and share trips.

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Great Gareth Edwards 8/1/13 11:48 PM
OMG Google how could you forget or overlook one of the most useful functions within a mapping tool. I just can't fathom why how or who could forget such an essential thing. most annoying when starting my days works.

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? MaryReinert 8/5/13 4:18 PM
Please, please bring back multiple destinations -  I can't believe this would be dropped.

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Abhinav Khandka 8/6/13 10:19 AM
Cant believe they removed it. I thought I was doing it wrong.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? David Moren-Brown 8/6/13 11:30 AM
I visited MAPS as usual and was faced with a complex program that cannot plan a route with multiple destinations, as previously.
This is a severe retrograde step and until this and other facilities on the previous edition are incorporated I shall not be wasting my time using this edition of MAPS.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Mary Ford 8/6/13 12:03 PM
me too
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? DemetersRest 8/7/13 9:00 PM
I'm liking what I see so far with the new maps, however I agree with the OP that to plan trips with multiple destinations is a definite must have for me.  Keep up the great work, can't wait to see the finished product!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? BillnTN 8/8/13 12:12 PM
Multi stop trips is a ESSENTIAL feature
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Bob Bak 8/8/13 7:21 PM
I agree whole heartedly, I always mapped out my route to several destinations to same time and money.
Please update the New Maps to include this feature!!! Thx
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Eric Palau 8/9/13 2:12 AM
TOTALLY AGREE!!! I hope you put this feature at the top of you list!!! thanks in advance!!!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? adv0r 8/9/13 4:15 AM
please take back multiple destinations itinerary planning or I'll move out of G
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? West Dispatch 8/9/13 8:23 AM
the new google map does not allow 3r and 4th destination option ,,,, no good for me
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Neda Farzinnia 8/9/13 9:27 AM
+1. Please bring back the option to plan multiple trips.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Tom Slaight 8/9/13 10:36 AM
Yes, Please bring back the option to route multiple stops.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Dan Callahan 8/9/13 10:39 AM
Can't live without multiple stops... going back to Bing

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Orlando Vazquez 8/9/13 11:43 AM
I agree this is a necessary feature I was shocked that they didn't incorporate it in the new version this is a must have feature that needs to be added back into the code.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Winfred Sam 8/9/13 7:14 PM
Maps totally useless without multiple destinations entries.  
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Katy Garlington 8/9/13 11:12 PM
Yes why would you take this feature away?  It was very useful.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? George Thayyil 8/10/13 10:03 AM
Me too, multiple location direction was very useful :(


Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Mike Montañez 8/11/13 5:39 AM
agreed! please bring it back now!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Olivia Desormeaux 8/12/13 12:35 PM
I agree as well.  Really frustrating.  Finding another program.
No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Barry DeCicco 8/12/13 6:01 PM
Yes, I'm looking for another mapping program as well.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? John Marchant 8/14/13 2:12 AM
This is an important feature, disappointed I have to switch back to classic maps, was enjoying the new maps.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? dperrell 8/14/13 10:03 AM
To switch back to the "classic" Google Maps site, you click "Help and Feedback" in the upper right corner of your maps tab and then select "Return to classic Google Maps."  Then when the final version is ready with all features implemented, Google will release the new Google Maps desktop site to everyone.  I will be stunned if that version does not allow multiple destinations or if it is not more stable than the current beta site.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? sneader 8/14/13 8:59 PM
Switched back to classic maps, but first I submitted feedback that not having multiple destinations is a deal breaker (and lame that it's missing, even for a beta product)
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? J. R. Hall 8/15/13 1:35 PM
The new map sucks, why would you a giant step backwards like nguettler said. You also cannot right click on anything and set destinations. Who ever designed the new map should be fired.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Ken Schepers 8/15/13 9:25 PM
I need Multiple stops.
Do I need to use Mapquest?

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? yalgoogi 8/16/13 12:33 AM
I don't find multiple stops... please add it. 
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? jason nyc 8/16/13 3:32 PM
I also agree that the new google maps is a step backwards. I sometimes go back to the old map system when I need to add other destinations. I think it would be a great idea to bring that back.

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? gregorreti 8/18/13 11:39 AM
I completely agree - we all need multiple destination planing, just as it is in real life. With today's gas prices we need to connect multiple destination to make a trip worthwhile  :-)

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? barryhunter 8/19/13 3:25 AM
Link to go to classic top right - in the Feedback - or the 'Cog' icon.

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Kimberly Cleverly 8/19/13 4:36 AM
Congratulations on this being a giant step backwards.  It's almost like using apple's iOS.  For the love of Pete, there are GROWN UPS who have been using computers (not just mobiles) for A LONG TIME and we like to multi-task.  Disappointment = massive; surprised?  Not.

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? robo-jim 8/19/13 7:42 PM
Roadtrippers is built on Google Maps and offers multi point planning and syncs trips to your phone for navigation, it's a great solution. - https://roadtrippers.com
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? John Pullicino 8/20/13 2:28 AM
Completely agree, I use multiple destinations daily, especially for work....

I'ts a must thus I cannot go to the "new" Google Maps until they add this feature....

There is nothing like storing 27 different locations all under one easy hyperlink that you can bookmark....

Google please implement multiple destinations.

Thanks.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? scirelli2 8/20/13 4:19 PM

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Nicole Moore 8/20/13 8:42 PM
Really hoping that the quantity of posts regarding how disappointed folks are that the multi-destination functionality is gone will help Google come to their senses. What kind of market research did they do to make them enhance the application in ways that don't matter to most people, yet remove one of the most basic aspects of the site that people use?!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Cathy Karl 8/21/13 11:46 PM
I can't believe you can't add a destination?  I want my old google maps back!!  :-(

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? ehg 8/22/13 12:53 AM
Cathy, you're free to get & use thei old google maps:
The "new maps" is a preview only to give some impression how could maps look.
It doesn't have all features of the classic GMap.
You can go back to the classic GMaps through top right gear icon.
This help article explains how to do this, either temporarily or permanently.  Just click the gear icon and then "Classic  Maps".


Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Wheelzup 8/22/13 3:25 AM
Shouldn't have been publicly Beta-ed without this imperative. Bye bye!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? John Leyva 8/24/13 1:46 PM
I missed multiple destinations , so in the end I was forced to use http://www.bing.com/maps/

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? John Leyva 8/24/13 1:47 PM
Nice job
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? John Leyva 8/24/13 1:48 PM
But because of this missing feature i was force to use Bing Maps
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Paula 8/26/13 9:04 AM
I agree...  Love the multiple destinations and use it all of the time.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? fsdkjfl; 8/26/13 10:02 AM
Absolutely agree.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Titiwd 8/26/13 11:00 AM
Please add this functionality back.  Without it I see little reason to use the new google maps.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Suresh Raju Pilli 8/26/13 10:11 PM
Yes, even I found that feature was missing and I felt like, why had taken out multiple destination feature. When I am planning for a trip multiple destination feature was awesome and new maps doesn't have it. Google, please get back the feature again.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Keagan Palmer 8/27/13 4:53 AM
"switch back to Classic Maps" best advise ever, thank you :)
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Evgeny Goldin 8/27/13 5:12 PM

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Evgeny Goldin 8/27/13 5:14 PM
"As Noistte said, it's just a matter of time before it comes back"

No, it's a matter of taking an essential feature away and then pushing everyone to use new maps. But when did Google actually care what we think?
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? brayhite 8/28/13 1:24 PM
Roadtrippers.com uses google maps AND has multiple destination support. definitely recommend giving it a go if you miss the old maps.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Liza Baker Clark 8/29/13 11:07 PM
i agree... totally useless to me without it... going back to of maps for now.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? dzidzi79 8/30/13 9:48 AM
Google,

I agree.  This is very much a feature you are lacking on.  Please bring this back.


Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Tamara Raymond 8/30/13 7:15 PM
Agreed!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Carol Thomas 8/31/13 7:56 PM
I don't like it either, Google.  Sometimes I like to retrace an impromptu trip and this makes it impossible.
 
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? ken Graalum 9/2/13 12:03 PM
Totally agree...was unable to "drag" route also.  Will look for Classic Maps!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Norman Morin 9/2/13 2:57 PM
Now I have to use Bing, or Mapquest because I want to go to multiple destinations and then return. Now you only give me limited point from "A to B". and that's it. I need Map to go to several destinations such as "C,D, E, F, G, or more, and return.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Amanda WalLinskey 9/3/13 1:14 AM
Why do people have to mess with what works? 
Development is simple:
Provide all the current features, like multiple destinations, then upload the 'new look' version, then develop it further with NEW features!! 
WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!!

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Stephen Spoonamore 9/6/13 2:22 AM
Yes.

The single best feature and primary value of the Old Google Maps was "add a destination"  I think 90% of the maps I have used were to look at options to get to 3-6 locations in a city in one day.

Without that feature.   This is not helpful.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? ehg 9/6/13 3:50 AM

luckily there is still the classic maps:
You can go back to the classic GMaps through top right gear icon.

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? brayhite 9/6/13 6:48 AM
there's also www.roadtrippers.com that is based on google maps and has multiple destination support. definitely recommend it as a google maps alternative.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Glee Zumbrennen 9/6/13 7:17 PM
Unbelievable - no multiple stops - very disapointed. 
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? JoeAtNMSU 9/7/13 4:22 AM
I used multiple destinations frequently -- well all the time practically. 
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Joseph Lust 9/7/13 7:05 AM
As a huge fan of the GMaps API and a contributor to some GMap API OSS projects (GWT-Maps-V3-API), I must say I'm taken aback by this delay. I too thought I was an idiot for being unable to find the multipart tool only to realize that it was removed along with many other features. 

Please add it back folks. Clearly the underlying directions APIs have the feature (insert another officious roadtripper shill here). I can only assume that the maps team was being pushed hard to make the Google I/O deadline in May and needed to release something for Larry and Vic to show off. The work "beta" conveys the sense of a product that is nearly ready for release, so they couldn't use that... so they chose "preview" which no one can define. Perhaps "alpha" would have been more appropriate as it is certainly no RC. Given that we're now four months past the release, I'd expect it to be moving past the MVP use cases and into a more rounded set of features.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? visibleby1 9/7/13 12:48 PM

I need this feature daily. I usually travel irregular multiple routes  routes. They also need to add it to there mobile apps.. Would also make my daily log book easier to fill out.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? St cox 9/9/13 2:38 PM
Please add multiple destinations.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Anna Chiaretta Lavatelli 9/11/13 10:04 PM
Agreed, another voice saying:  please add multiple destinations to the new version!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? terryw24 9/12/13 1:32 AM
It is very poor to have removed the multiple destinations feature, moving the route is not as accurate or easy to use
TW
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Dave Cavan 9/12/13 8:25 AM
Without multiple destinations a map system is next to useless to us.  Hopefully that's on the way before release.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Joseph Stoddard 9/12/13 8:43 PM
It's more than a step backwards/work in progress  - it's a  terminating factor, meaning we can no longer use the application without this capability. I certainly hope this is a temporary "Beta" issue - because without the ability to route vehicles to multiple addresses (think service truck drivers, delivery people, salespeople, etc.) Google Maps is completely unusable and irrelevant for our company and our clients - anyone trying to plan the most efficient routing for their mobile workforce.  However - even casual vacationers and parents planning errands in the family cross-over need to be able to plot multiple route points - this is a universal need.   How Google could choose this as the one feature to defer is beyond me.    Furthermore, Google has proven time and time again they can't be trusted to keep the 'old version around until the 'new version' is totally sorted out. 

Anyone listening out there in GoogleLand ? 
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Bret Leduc 9/13/13 1:12 AM
What ever high school student was able to get in touch with a human being at Google - I give him Kudos!!!
Also, I give him Kudos for being able to get into a conversation with Google.
I give him Kudos for being able to turn that conversation into a sales pitch for tinkering with Google maps.
Unfortunately, he was so convincing that Google actually allowed him to tinker with their maps functionality and code.
This student's class project, which Google calls "New Google Maps" gets a grade of "F---- !!!!", a "Strongly consider revision!!!", and a "See me!" to boot.


Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Andrew Kosowan 9/14/13 10:36 AM
Taking away this feature from Google Maps means that I will have to look for other online map providers. Or I'll start using my commercial gps instead. Not impressed.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Johanna Orand 9/14/13 8:29 PM
Yep. I'm adding my voice to the chorus here of users that will have to straight up stop using google maps if you can't add multiple destinations. I can't at all fathom why this feature would not exist. If it's presenting a difficulty in implementing it--ok. Frustrating, but ok. But if google thinks it is unnecessary or undesired? ... Google feels farther and farther away from being on the same page as its users.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? barryhunter 9/15/13 4:15 PM
@Joseph Stoddard (and everyone else for that matter!) 

See

Unfortatuntly the link to the Maps Mania post is broken (due to a technical issue on that blog), but its available here:

That post specifically mentions Multiple Destiniations (pt 2), and the G+ post says they are working on all the mentioned items. 
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Mazzy.star.gazer 9/18/13 2:55 AM
Definitely need multiple destinations, I use that all the time.

Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Elena Savko 9/18/13 1:33 PM
I just don't get it!! Why do they have to change the layout? Seems like they like people to suffer... lol... especially while you need to use it quick! Ka-boom!!  :((
I absolutely loved the multiple destination. I use them pretty often. It helps determine the quickest rout.  
I also liked to see green on regular streets, now not only they are dotted lines there is no green lines. :( You can only see them on freeways...  Lame! :(
Another BIG inconvenience (on the Phone app) THERE IS NO zoom IN and OUT buttons. So yes you can zoom in by double clicking but you can't just zoom out with one hand holding the phone. You have to use another hand to pinch it in.... Hello????  Why would you take it off? 
GOOGLE! PLEASE THE OLD FUNCTIONS AND OPTIONS! THANK YOU!
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? Gregory Nash 9/18/13 2:08 PM
Add me to the vote.
Re: No multiple destinations on new Google Maps website? lukasc 9/18/13 3:18 PM
work in progress? Man, it's a key feature, you basically launched a very incomplete product. I can't review it and tell you if its good or not, if it doesn't have the same features as the old product. What do I compare it to? The old product? Then it's rubbish, cuz I can't do multiple destinations. I don't care about fancy graphics. 

Launch it with all key features, then worry about fancy stuff.
