Using Advanced Route Planning Features on an Android Device
Route4Me uses advanced algorithms that allow you to easily plan the most time-efficient and cost-effective routes that consist of many variables. Route4Me takes care of all calculations and computing processes, delivering user-friendly tools for planning the most complex routes. However, you can also manually adjust the algorithm of the routes’ computation to your preference using the Advanced Route Planning Features.
To adjust the routes’ computation algorithm, first, go to “Settings” from the navigation menu.
Then, open the “Default Route Settings” tab where you can adjust the default settings of the route planning computation method.
There are four different routing types you can use when planning your routes:
– Round Trip: The route is optimized by Route4Me and ends at the user-defined start destination/address;
– Lock Last Destination: The route is optimized by Route4Me and ends at the user-defined last destination/address;
– Disable Optimization – End Anywhere: The route is not optimized and ends at any preferred destination/address. When disabling the optimization, you can manually adjust the sequence/order of addresses on the route;
– Disable Optimization – Round Trip: The route is not optimized and ends at the start address. When disabling the optimization, you can manually adjust the sequence/order of addresses on the route.
Adjusting the “Optimize Driving Directions for” settings allows you to plan routes with the focus on the most efficient optimization in terms of “Distance,” “Time,” or “Time with Traffic.”
You can also plan routes that avoid or minimize the specific types of roads, such as: “Highways,” or “Toll” roads.
Depending on the location of your routes and particular needs of your business, you can plan routes that are computed taking into account the most efficient roads for “Driving” or “Walking.”
