I am planning a cross country, point-to-point road trip that will total about 26 hours of driving. The purpose of this trip is not sight seeing, but just to get from point A to point B.
I can plug my start and finish destinations into google and get a nice map with the shortest route and the total drive time duration. But for better planning of breaks along the way etc what would really help is to be able to see how the accumulated drive time varies across the span of the trip. EG what I want is something like one of these:
See ticks or coloration along the route that indicate (say for example) 1, 2, 4 or 8 hours of drive time.
Drop pins on the route (that I can move around) and directly see the drive time duration between them
Specify the number of hours driving per leg that I want to endure.
As per the comment on this question from 2015 I could manually set waypoints in google maps and then read through the detailed directions in order to glean the durations between said waypoints. But that seems so 4 years ago (and a lot of work - especially as it is very easy to add a waypoint that isn't on the direct route). And I looked at the Michelin web site in the answer and that seems to want a whole lot of information from me that I was not prepared to share.
Is there a better alternative in 2019?
