Send a notification to your phone

If you are getting directions or looking for a particular place on Yandex.Maps, you can send a notification with information about the place or directions to your mobile device.

To do this, click Send to phone in the route or place card.

  • If you are logged into Yandex.Maps on your computer using the same account as on your mobile device, notifications will be sent immediately.
  • If you use different accounts on your mobile device and Yandex.Maps, in the menu that opens you can choose additional methods to send information: by email or SMS.
  • In the same menu, you will see a QR code that you can use to get a notification. Scan it with your mobile device (you should have a QR code scanning app installed).

Tap on the notification on your mobile device to open Yandex.Maps. It will display the route or place you sent. If you don't have the Yandex.Maps app installed, the information will be displayed in your device's browser via the web version of Yandex.Maps.
