Miscellaneous InformationNavigation:
Each Google Map route will have a starting point and multiple stops.  
iPhone users: when you arrive at a stop, you must remove the PREVIOUS starting point, making your current stop the NEW starting point. 
Android users:  As long as you “arrive” at each stop, it will automatically advance to the next one.  Otherwise, you will have to remove a stop.
EXCEPTION: Do NOT remove any stops when you are in a dead zone! This will cancel the map and you will not be able to relaunch it.
Dead zone: in poor or no cell phone coverage, you will still be able to see the route since GPS continues to work.  Just don’t exit the map or try to remove a stop or you will lose the route.  

Obey all traffic laws.  Use crosswalks and sidewalks wherever possible.  When sidewalks are not available, generally it is recommended to walk against traffic but there may be times where the shoulder is wider walking WITH traffic.  Be careful approaching curves and hills as visibility will be limited! 
Walk with a buddy.
