    Google Maps remove alternate routes


    I really like Google Maps. But when I get a route there are several alternate routes displayed. Does anyone know how to remove the alternate routes? I print the map to take it with me and the less clutter the better.

    Just a guess but I would have thought that once you've decided which route you want re-enter the exact details and forget the rest....

    There's no facility to sharpen the search. You feed it the starting address and destination and it does the rest. Would be nice if you could specify "via route 12", but no.

    'Drag to Change' the preferred route then drag it back, the alternate route(s) should disappear, print.

Google Maps versus Google Earth in Software and Apps
I looked in street view in a rather newly developed area. To my surprise buildings were shown in Google Maps and only a flat surface area (no buildings) was shown in Google Earth. Apparently both apps donot use the same database.
