Add Stops to Routes from the Interactive Map – iOS

Route4Me’s iPhone Route Planner is designed to make your routing operations and transactions as fast and flexible as possible, allowing you to effortlessly plan, optimize, and navigate routes of any complexity on the go. With Route4Me’s multi-stop iOS route planner app, users can navigate their planned routes using the built-in voice-guided navigation or any third-party navigation app, including Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, etc. Moreover, Route4Me’s iPhone app enables you to add addresses to your planned routes by picking any preferred location right from the map. Adding addresses from the interactive map to your planned routes enables you to get a visual overview of your customers’ spatial arrangement, improve your routing patterns, and make your logistics transactions more strategical.

 

To add new addresses/destinations to a particular planned route right from the interactive map, first, open this route by going to “Routes” from the navigation menu and selecting the preferred route from your Routes List.

Next, zoom in on the area where the address that you want to add to the route is located and then tap and hold on the location that you want to add to the route as a destination. After that, the app picks the nearest valid street address located next to the selected spot on the map. When prompted, check the address that you are adding and then tap “Confirm” to proceed.

If the route is optimized as “End Anywhere,” the newly added address is inserted as the “End” destination on the route. If the route is optimized as “Roundtrip,” the newly added address is inserted into the route as the last stop before the “End” destination.

When adding a new address to a planned route, this address is added to the route as the last stop or the “End” destination on the route. To re-optimize the route and place the newly added addresses in the most optimal sequence, tap on the “Replan Route” button and then confirm when prompted.

Once the route is re-optimized and the newly added addresses are placed on the most optimal positions based on the predefined optimization settings, the route’s total time and distance can change (decrease) accordingly.
