Angular 2 - passing data between routes

I have 2 routes in my application - /search/criteria and /search/results.

In the search criteria component, user fills the search criteria and clicks on the search button. This button calls a function (onSearch) and the form values are passed as an input. It then routes the user to search results component.

onSearch(formValues) {
     console.log(formValues);
     this.router.navigate(['/search/results']);
  }

How can I pass the formValues (Javascript object which contains search criteria entered by the user) to the search results component? In the search results component, I would be executing the search (using the service) and displaying the results to the user in a grid.

Since the search execution is done in a service, I could also call this service from the onSearch method. But then the question would be how to pass the results to the search results component (so that it can render them in a grid).

What would be a better approach?
