Address Scanner – iOS iPhone Route Planner App Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

Route4Me’s iPhone Route Planner app provides seamless continuity throughout the entire multi-stop route planning, optimization, navigation, and visitation process.  For your convenience and efficiency, Route4Me’s iPad and iPhone Route Optimization app features an integrated optical character recognition (OCR) address scanner. Instead of manually entering each address, you can quickly and easily add hundreds of addresses by simply scanning them from any surface.

The address scanner is integrated, so you don’t need any additional scanner apps, OCR software, document scanner apps, or cam scanners for mobile scanning and text recognition. Furthermore, the scanner can easily recognize addresses from multi-line texts, different fonts, or handwritten addresses, and automatically suggest validated and geocoded address options.

To use the OCR address scanner for adding addresses to a new route, open the app’s main menu and tap the “Add New Route” button. Next, schedule the route, specify the route’s optimization settings, and then tap the “Done” button. After that, tap the camera icon next to the “Enter Start Address” or “Enter Address” field. Additionally, learn more about planning routes and route settings on Route4Me’s iOS Route Planner app.
