And on my Android, it finds directions, but won't route... just has a "preview" button that doesn't exist on any other route.

it's because DC has ordered virtually every road in downtown DC to be closed. if the roads are 'closed' they can't route people through the area/

Works on Android

every access point INTO DC has a construction icon. Perhaps choke points to round up undesirables.

Surely following the highway signs to Washington DC and/or following other flag waving vehicles will be the last thing people will do.

Get a road atlas
 Quoting: Little Red Hen


I am sure the local convenience store has 1 million extra road atlases just laying there. Sheesh.

Just checked GMAPS on my Android Samsung S9 and it shows DC just fine. ALL the roads around the white house show road closed signs though.

Also, here is a link that should bring the DC google map up for you in whatever browser you are using.

It worked just fine on my iPhone. However I used “Navigate to United States Capitol” it worked just fine, and showed my designation as United States Capitol.

Re: Google maps shuts off Washington D.C. map access!
My iPhone will reject directions if I search for Washington DC. That said, I have no issues manually selecting a location.p inside DC.

My Android (Google Maps) has no issues. That said, it shows that all roads in DC are “closed”. I suspect this may be why Apple rejects directions?

It won't even give you a route to WALK there. But it will get you there by Amtrak in two days. Anyone closer than a day by train confirm if it will route you there?

Lol such fear mongering! It works fine if you search for any specific location within the city. Why would you even travel into a city without a specified location anyways? Sounds like a great way to get lost.
