The Route Planner

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

The Route Planner

Need directions to go somewhere? Well, then you should try using The Route Planner to plan your drive! It’s really easy to use and not only does it give you directions, but it shows you your route side by side with the directions. Let’s see what we’ve got!

To get started, type in your starting address at the top of the page and then the address you want to plan a route for. Next, choose the language you want from the drop down box. The default is English, but the other languages include: French, German, Japanese and Spanish. After you’ve selected a language, all you need to do is click on the Get Directions button.

It will then generate directions to your destination, side by side with a map showing you the route. You can view the map in three different ways. The default is Map and it looks like a regular map you’d see in an Atlas. Your next option is Satellite, which looks like the satellite weather maps you see on TV. My favorite option is Hybrid, which is a combination of the two. You get both a regular map and a satellite map together!

This is a great tool for planning the route to your next destination. Check it out!
