When I enter a car route in Google Maps (e.g. Amsterdam to Madrid) I get nicely a total in estimated hours and the distances between each milestone.

But I'm looking for the time at each milestone. (because in that way I can mark spots where I can rest each 2 hours)

So e.g.:

  1. milestone 1 : 3.7 hours
  2. milestone 2 : 4.3 hours

etc... Is there a tool / method / plugin / anything to achieve this easily?

Can you explain what you mean by "milestones"? Is it the turns along the route? – Nate Eldredge Aug 11 '13 at 17:37
The "milestones" are the the separate steps in the Google Maps plan: as displayed in the GUI. – edelwater Aug 13 '13 at 23:26

You can use viamichelin . It shows you the times between the milestones and even suggest you when to take a break: viamichelin screenshot

Why does it show all those steep hills? – gerrit Aug 12 '13 at 11:40
they are just warnings. You can ignore them. – Dirty-flow Aug 12 '13 at 11:42
I should avoid "thanks" in the comments... but still: thanks... awesome application it even shows me the euro's to pay for the toll routes and the speed limit signs... wow. – edelwater Aug 13 '13 at 23:39
