I sometimes need to email a list of directions that I need to be available offline. So, emailing a link to Google Maps directions doesn't work. I want to email all of the directions.

I've tried just copying the page and emailing with Gmail but the markup is fouled up and unreadable (in IE10 and Chrome).

    How about copying the "Print" view? Hit the "print" button to get a simplified view and copy that (rather than actually printing). – ale Jul 23 '13 at 15:33

    Or printing them to PDF and emailing the PDF file. – Alex Jul 23 '13 at 15:48

First press the Print button, and then either:

  1. Print the contents of the window to a PDF file (using a tool such as doPDF), or

  2. Save the contents of the window using your browser's equivalent of

    "Save Page As" ==> "Web Archive" / "Web Page, complete".

    If the archive consists of multiple files then optionally zip them together into a single file for convenience.

  3. Mail the PDF or the web archive file(s)
