Google Maps is the go-to app for plotting your route, be it local, national or international, but it has certain limitations.

All Google has allowed you to add for actual locations is ten places, we want to go to more, a lot more.

As it stands this is it!

if you look at the bottom of the list there is a + symbol to add more cities/ locations but its blanked out, Google says your done.

…but are you? No!

By looking into the Google code and doing some research and some code changes I found a workaround, and I’m not the first to do this, so I take zero credit for it, I’m just sharing information.

This is how it works, to be able to add up to 25 locations instead of ten it is actually very simple.

Firstly what you really want to do is plot a map with more locations like this, right?

The map above has 18 locations, but you can add up to 25 locations, after that Google maps will not find a route

How did I do it, I went into the written code and made a few changes using this link that you simply now just click on and it will open google maps with 25 locations for you to change. If for any reason the link fails, simply copy and paste the whole thing into your address bar

https://www.google.nl/maps/dir/Phoenix,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona/Tucson,+Arizona

On my screen, I can’t see all 25 so I have to shrink the screen size down on my Mac by hitting: command  – (minus) so I can make use of them all, maps don’t allow the left side of the screen to scroll for some reason…maybe an Apple thing.

As you can see from the image below once I have done that the font size on the left of the screen is now tiny and I can now see the 25 locations, compare it with the first or second screenshot.

It allows me to change each location to where I want and then simply delete the extras I don’t need. I changed one of the Tucson locations to NYC as an example, below

So to review, copy and paste this into your address bar (or just click on it) and plot your route, change the location Tucson to your desired location/s, delete what you don’t need and Google will do the rest
