Accessing Your Trip Map on an iPhone

This article assumes you have already imported your trip map into Google Maps. This must be done on a computer. For details on that process, please see Importing your trip map to Google Maps.

To begin, open the Google Maps app on your iPhone. If you don't already have the Google Maps app downloaded and installed to your iPhone, visit the App Store on your device.

Confirm that you are logged into your Google account by tapping the Menu icon in the upper left corner, represented by three horizontal lines.

Your map will appear. You may have to adjust the map using your finger to find your starting point. As you can see, each trip stop will be marked with a pin.

Once you’re ready to begin your trip, simply tap your first stop and then tap Directions.


Google Maps will ask you to Choose a starting point. Tap to select.

You can either choose to begin from your current location (most popular) of choose a location on the map. Because you usually want directions from wherever you currently happen to be, we recommend choosing your current location.

As you can see, Google Maps has plotted your course. Click Start to begin turn-by-turn directions.

Repeat this process for each leg of your trip, tapping the next stop and adjusting your new starting location as necessary. To drag your route, long-tap the screen.
