Add Destinations to a Route – Android Route Planner

 

The Route4Me Android multi stop route planner app enables you to plan and optimize routes with multiple destinations on the go. Moreover, our route planning app can be used both as a standalone, mobile route planner as well as an extension of the web-based Route4Me route optimization platform. You can use the route planner app to plan routes, insert stops into already planned routes, and a lot more. If you’ve been wondering “How can I add a stop to my route?”, follow these simple steps to dynamically add destinations to routes in seconds.
