Plan a route on your Mac
Before a big trip, you can plan your route on your Mac, and then share the details to another device (iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch). You must be signed in with the same Apple ID on your device and your Mac.
In the Maps app on your Mac, click a location on the map, such as an intersection, landmark, or business.
In the place card, do one of the following:
Get directions to this location: Click Directions.
Create a route from this location: Click Create Route, then enter the destination in the To field.
If needed, adjust the starting and ending locations, or drag the Reorder button next to a location to swap your starting and ending points.
Click the Drive or Transit button.
Tip: If you’re riding transit, you may be able to see the fare next to the route.
Select Leave to choose when you want to leave your starting point, or Arrive to choose when you want to reach your destination.
Click the date to enter a new date, or use the calendar to select a new date.
Click the time to enter when you plan to leave or want to arrive.
Click Options, then choose any of the following:
If you’re driving: Choose to avoid tolls and highways.
If you’re taking public transportation: Choose which transit options you prefer, such as bus or ferry.
Click the Share button in the toolbar, then choose the device you want to send directions to.
You get a notification on your device; tap it to open the directions in Maps.
Note: You can only share driving routes that don’t contain multiple stops. If you want to see a route with multiple stops on your iPhone or iPad, see Automatically get directions on your iPhone or iPad.
