Google Maps Vs. MyRouteOnline

If you’re in the trucking or delivery industry, it’s quite likely that you’ve heard the buzz about us. As the buzz has grown, you’re probably wondering what we’re all about and why people are even using our navigation app when they already have Google Maps or Apple Maps on their devices. Well, the difference is actually quite impactful. But, to clear up any confusion, we’ll give you the full rundown in this article and explain why you don’t have to ditch your favorite navigation app completely but instead combine the two! But we’re getting ahead of ourselves…

MyRouteOnline vs. Google Maps

There’s no denying that when it comes to assistance with navigational routing, the likes of Google Maps are a giant in the industry, deservedly so. It’s intuitive, comprehensive, and (almost) always up to date with road closures, traffic, and construction. That’s why we’re not here to tell you to ditch Google Maps. On the contrary, using Google Maps truck routes is one of the things we love about them because it pairs so perfectly with what we have to offer.

Using google maps to plan truck routes from point A to point B is pretty seamless. However, if you are a delivery or truck driver, you can sometimes make 100-odd stops in a single workday; this is where Google Maps can fall short. To create a multi-stop journey within Google Maps alone, you must painstakingly enter each address one at a time. And if you have 100 stops in a day, just imagine how much time you would eat up entering addresses alone, let alone any other form of work like driving, admin, and professional development.

When MyRouteOnline and Google Maps team up

This is where MyRouteOnline and Google Maps become the ultimate navigational pair. The import functionality is our users’ favorite features. You can import hundreds of addresses from an Excel sheet, or similar, in a flash. Once the addresses, or drop points, are our route planner, our app elegantly pieces together your most optimum driving route to hit all your targets most efficiently. You can even select individual priorities, such as the shortest route possible and the fastest route possible.
Once your ideal route is mapped out (which takes no time at all), MyRouteOnline communicates this information to your Google Maps app, and you can still use Google Maps truck route navigation but incur significantly less manual data entry.

Do I have to use Google Maps with MyRouteOnline?

While we have spent a decent chunk of this article hyping up Google Maps truck route capabilities, it’s important to note that you don’t have to use this app if you don’t want to. MyRouteOnline integrates with all major navigational apps, such as Apple Maps, Waze, and others.
