How to add secondary destinations in Apple Maps while navigating

  1. While already in navigation mode on iPhone, swipe up from anywhere on the bottom portion of the screen.
  2. Tap on either Gas Stations, Breakfast, or Coffee.
  3. A list will appear with options near your area. Simply tap on them and add it to navigation. Give it a few seconds and Apple Maps will begin routing you in that direction.
