Use Advanced Route Planning Features – Android Route Planner
Route4Me uses advanced route planning algorithms that allow you to easily plan the most time-efficient and cost-effective optimized routes that consist of many variables. Route4Me takes care of all calculations and computing processes, delivering user-friendly tools for planning the most complex multi stop routes and solving the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) and the Vehicle Route Problem (VRP) in seconds. Moreover, 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 the particular needs of your business, you can plan routes that are computed taking into account the most efficient roads for Driving or Walking.
