5. Use the zoom tool to get closer and find the exact area where you will draw your route and once you locate it, click on the button “Add Bookmark” to set the starting point of your route; add a name for this point and click “Save”.
6. Click on the button “Draw line”. It is best to use the option “Add line or shape”, since this tool allows you to draw the path with greater freedom and precision; but if you prefer, you can also specify if the route will be by car, by bicycle or on foot, with the other three options.
7. Then, position the cursor on the map, at the initial point that you had marked at the beginning and, from there, starts tracing the route by moving the cursor to where it corresponds, according to the path you want to mark. You can give intermediate clicks where there is a curve or corner to turn, and at the end of the route, double click so that the arrival point is marked there.
8. Also you can add waypoints along the routein case you are going to use it to give directions on how to get to a place. Just click on the “Add bookmark” button and put the cursor on the point of the route where you want to add itclick and set a name to identify it (store, tree, building, fence of that color, etc.) and click “Save”.
