We’re proud to announce that we’ve just added one of the most-requested features to date: Directions!
Now, location results will not only give you the option for directions but allow you to choose from the most-requested map providers – Apple, Bing, Here, OpenStreetMap, and yes – even Google Maps!
Once you’ve chosen your favorite maps provider, the “Get Directions” button will default to that source in the future, where cookie-applicable. This works on mobile, too – jumping straight into the selected maps app if it's installed to your device.
We're still working on more improvements to the directions implementation. Soon, your chosen maps provider will be an integrated Setting so it will get saved along with the rest of your DuckDuckGo preferences. We're also planning to add more maps providers so don’t worry if your favorite company isn't on the list yet.
