Driving Route Planner

Do you have several errands to run and wonder what the optimal route is to save gas and/or time?

Are you a service person trying to determine when to schedule your appointments for the day?

Do you ever wish Mapquest and Google Maps could show multiple destinations on the same map?

If you answered yes to any of one of these questions, then check out http://drivingrouteplanner.com. It’s a free service that is very easy to use. You can print out maps, display the route on your smart phone, or even export the route to your GPS/navigation system.

Want even more features besides the driving distance or driving time? Perhaps you want to pick up groceries on your final stop or avoid busy streets during rush-hour. Then choose from several shortest routes and the quickest routes. You can also choose the exact sequence for your stops by entering them in the desired order.

A similar site is MapQuest Route Planner at http://www.mapquest.com/routeplanner. It’s not quite as full featured as the first one, but it’s close.
