The Address Book is a centralized database of all contacts and addresses stored on your Route4Me account. You can easily include your Address Book contacts into different routes using your Android device. With the Route4Me Android route planner app, you can effortlessly insert your customers’ locations into planned routes with multiple stops on the go. This allows you to increase the mobility and flexibility of your business activities, giving you the ability to adapt to any last-minute customer demands.
