Is there a good way of taking google maps' driving directions and exporting them as a series of GPS coordinates detailing the route? Any help you can provide is much appreciated!
Try the tool at Maps to GPX.
Get a share link for your route on Google Maps, then paste it into that website. It will give you a download for a GPX file, containing the directions as a track or route.
