Customizing Routes with Google Maps

Google Maps gets even better with the option to drag-and-drop the suggested route to create your own customized route. Or, simply check a box to avoid highways. Or, click “take public transit” to get bus options.

Great additions from Google. My only feedback regards slow performance on an update of driving directions after customizing my route. Might be worthwhile to refrain from updating driving directions until I’ve completed my customizations. Of course, perhaps only I am making several modifications quickly.
