If you have chosen for Google to search for you, you can now decide where you want to stay. For each stop, the length of the detour is shown in minutes. Click on the desired location, in this case a gas station, to select.
click Add stops. Your route is modified and you are first guided to the rest stop. When you have reached there, the navigation aid takes you on to the final destination. You can then also enter a new stop if necessary.
