When you want to see how to get to a certain location using Gmaps, in addition to choosing the type of transportation, you can also choose the route you want to use. By default, the shortest route will be automatically selected, but that may not always be the best choice. If you expect a traffic jam, it is better to choose a route that is further, but also where there is less crowded. Changing the route is really easy and all you have to do is tap on the route you want to use.
