Didn't see any optimization, Google maps already gives you the most optimized route and this extension just shows the same.
Used to be such a great extension. Any type of attempt to use it now pushes you to their own domain away from Google Maps, and you're incentivized to go on a paid plan. It says you can still proceed on a free plan with limited use, but it simply doesn't function anymore with the re-routing.
Every time I try to use it, it takes me to the "Uh oh, could not sync accounts! Your routora account and Google account you use on chrome must be the same. Please ensure you are currently signed into chrome" screen. I assume it doesn't work because I'm on Microsoft Edge. Until it works, I will have to give it 1 star.
It sounds great, but does not work. Keeps showing error message "Error, Please Re-Enter Stops"
I've saved so much money from this extension, thanks Routora!
Was able to use the extension once about a month or two ago. On my most recent attempts clicking to optimize my 9 stop route, which should be optimized for FREE, opens two tabs on chrome ( https://www.routora.com/playground ) and does nothing on the already open tab of google.maps to optimize my route. I then attempted to use the website (because it opened it itself) and it says I need to pay even though (again) my trip is 9 stops. It seems that in an attempt to monetize you've locked users out?
I was poor, now I'm a poorer WAO IT HAS 1 MORE STOP THAN GOOGLE MAPS IN ITS FREE PLAN SO COMPETITIVE
Ne fonctionne pas, me dit que je ne suis pas connecté alors que je le suis !
Do love the extension. But the only question I have is, does it automatically lock in whatever your starting and ending points are and, if so, is there a way to change that? Because it seems like there should be.
The extension is very user-friendly and easy to install, and once it's up and running it seamlessly integrates with Google Maps!
Doesn't work with non chrome forks like Opera, Chromium or Edge, also has problems with shared routes ("Error, Please Re-Enter Stops") AND cost a lot of money (9.99/month) for a feature, that should be included into Google maps from the beginning. The plugin author has nothing to do with the last point, but 10 bucks is a lot for the feature to begin with and then it should be bug and hassle free. That's not the case right now. Will check in a year or two again, it's not like it is here for more than a year already and all the problems could have been fixed.
Works beautifully, put a big smile on my face. So simple to use! Very thankful you have the free option during Beta, hopefully there'll always be a free option
Multiple technical issues. It doesn't work on Chromium, it doesn't work on Edge. I keep clicking the extension after adding all the stops, and I get «User not signed in to Chrome» when I'm clearly, 100 per cent logged in. Then, if I copy the URL with just six stops to the Routora site, it says I need a premium account to optimize, when the free version supposedly supports up to ten stops. Contradictive, disappointing and underwhelming.
Worked great for delivering Christmas gifts to a bunch of neighbors!
Google maps is free! You are using google maps to optimize it and charging $10. I couldnt even try to get it working for free! Good luck!
Awesome extension - gonna save soooo much money in gas!
Super helpful tool when going on vacation! Love it!
ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!! The Routify extension is a fantastic tool that greatly enhances Google Maps. If you are a casual user of Google Maps and have multiple stops in your route to your ultimate destination, the Routify extension will enhance your trip by routing you to all of the stops in the shortest amount of distance and time saving you money in both personal time spent driving and gas. If you are running a delivery service, think about the money your company will save in labor costs and gas! The Routify extension is so simple to use. It is an extension to Google Chrome. To install, search for "Routify for Google Maps" on the Chrome Webstore. Download the Routify extension and pin the extension button to your Chrome browser. Enter your trip details (destination and all intermediate stops in ANY order; don't worry as Routify will reorder them in the best order possible) in Google Maps. Then click the extension button, and then click Routify, and a new Google Maps window will open with your original route rearranged in the best order possible. One caveat: when you create your Routify account make sure to use the exact same login id that you use on Google Chrome. I used Routify on my Windows PC yesterday for the first time, and it is so simple to set up and use. It is possible to email your enhanced Google Maps route to your phone. It is not yet available on Android phones or iPhones, but plans exist for a roll-out to Android, iPhone and other platforms. I was well pleased. You will be pleased too, I am certain. Best of all, Routify is FREE! There is a paid version also, and at www.routifymap.com you can check out further details.
As someone who values time, the optimization is definitely my favorite feature. Going to buy the premium version for sure.
Amazing for when you have a lot of places to go and not much time to plan!! I recently took a trip to Chicago and had so many places to go but was really having trouble figuring out where to go first. I was able to save a lot of gas and time by using this extension. Chicago traffic is killer! If you have a lot of places to go and not sure how to get everywhere in time make sure to give it a try.
