The Driving Directions Home is a browser extension, which claims to provide users with reliable maps and driving instructions that can help them get the best route to their desired destination. However, it is questionable why someone would want to have this information in their Web browser, considering that they would not be able to access it while driving their car. Regardless of this, it is undeniable that the Driving Directions Home serves its purpose well and it does, in fact, provide users with driving instructions. However, the driving instructions are based on a 3rd-party map service, and this means that the only thing that the Driving Directions Home does is to refer users to an alternative routing and map service.
The Driving Directions Home software is only available for Google Chrome, and users who use other Web browsers are unlikely to encounter the unwanted changes that the installation of this extension may bring. When the Driving Directions Home is deployed to a computer, it may modify the Google Chrome’s default new tab page to Drivingdirectionshome.org, a search engine that offers driving directions, as well as access to a search feature. All searches executed through Drivingdirectionshome.org end up taking the user to a search results page hosted by Yahoo. Similar products that Polarity Technologies offer are:

Users who wish to remove the Driving Directions Home and the new tab page it has brought to Google Chrome should take the necessary steps to uninstall the software from their computers. One way to deal with this extension is to use the Google Chrome’s settings to uninstall it manually. If this does not work as expected, then you should not forget that a credible PC security utility can handle the task as well.
