If you own a small business, drive for a living, or even if you're a busy mom, when you get in the car for a work trip, meeting, or to run an errand, the trip is never as simple as traveling from Point A to Point B. There's usually points C, D, E, F and G too. To make matters more complicated, the route you take on the road could mean a huge difference in terms of time - and money - saved.
And wouldn't you know it, the one thing Google Maps isn't good at, is providing navigation for trips that require multiple stops.

Plan the route poorly and you could end up criss-crossing and zig-zagging all over the city. As the popular meme says, "ain't nobody got time for that."
