I have this navigation system on my car and I am wondering if there is a way to put in a trailhead name and get driving directions to the trailhead?

I don't know what system you have, but Google maps has some trailheads--I just checked for Flagstaff, and Mt. Elden and Schulz Pass are in there. But I would double-check before just hitting the "start" button because in the past we've found some trailheads to be mislabeled--can't recall offhand which ones.

Why don't you just try with the desired trailhead and see?

guess if you don't know the cross streets you gotta figure it out and type it in or maybe coordinates as suggested

If you have a babies toy.

- import route
- tap route in files folder
- tap drive


If it's a major trailhead forget the use of hands
"okay google, take me to the peralta trailhead"

I tried the verbal command this morning to Sunrise Trailhead and it had me going south on I17 which I new was wrong.

I never use a compass while I'm driving.
