Plan a route on your Mac
Before a big trip or a day of cycling, 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 using 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:
Click Create Route, then enter the destination in the To field (or click the Swap Directions button , then enter the starting point in the From field).
Click Directions, then adjust the starting and ending locations if needed.
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.
