Open places and directions right where you'd want to—in Maps.

Rerouter is a super simple Safari Extension that opens Google Maps links in macOS's default Maps app. Automatically and privately.

Set-up is easy thanks to the step-by-step instructions (with pictures!) located right within the app.

Not only is Rerouter incredibly convenient, it is also totally private. Rerouter contains no trackers/loggers/etc. and never will. All link rerouting happens on your device, and the extension never communications with a server. In fact, for those more tech-savvy users, you can even browse the code yourself!

Rerouter offers the opportunity to leave me a tip via in-app purchase. While that would be very kind, please note that it doesn't unlock any additional features. Rerouter is totally free to use and enjoy.

What’s New

Version 2.8

This update squashes a few issues related to opening "" short-links and adds support for rerouting extremely general locations (like "France"). Thank you to everyone who sent emailed me about these bugs. It was a huge help!

Didn’t work.

Maybe I didn’t do it right. But I followed all the steps to the instructions and it all seemed ok. I use the FarEye app for work and I got tired of using google maps since it’s OS is just annoying. Thought I could use this to help. But no. It also mentions it works best without google maps installed so I uninstalled it. No luck. It simply opens the link to safari. Even after all the settings options it requested to turn on.

Developer Response ,

I’m sorry to hear it didn’t work out for you. I can’t test with that app, but if you could email me one of the Google Maps webpages Rerouter isn’t working with at I can try to get this fixed for you!
