We are trying to plan a camping trip. On our phones we are able to use Google Maps, specify destination and then "search along route" for campgrounds. BUT I want to do this on my laptop instead of the tiny cell phone screen. Best I can tell my laptop Google Maps for some reason does not have the "search along route" feature.

Is there a way to get the search along route on my laptop? Or is there another RV camping trip planning tool I should be using?

Thanks

On the browser, Google Maps has a `search this area` function.

I use this function a lot - but it doesn't seem to be available once I've mapped a route. Where in the menus are you referring to?

I just tried that in Google Maps because I had never noticed it. Type the name of a location. Then scroll a little bit and it appears on the left

Yes - been using that function for years... just can't do it once a route has been plotted.
