After adding the departure stop, you need to add or import the addresses that you will use for planning the new route. To import addresses from your device, Google Drive, or Dropbox in CSV or XLS format, first, go to the “Import” tab and then select the preferred import option accordingly. To learn more about adding addresses manually, visit this page. Once you added the destinations that you want to include into the route, tap on the “Optimize” button to plan the route.

Once the Roundtrip route with Disabled Optimization is planned, this route will start and end at the same predefined depot, and all destinations after the route’s start address will be placed in the exact same sequence as they had been imported or added to the route before it was planned.

When planning Round Trip routes with Disabled Optimization, Route4Me’s Android Route Planner creates a new route that starts and ends at the same predefined departure address (depot), and all stops within the route (between the start and end) are sequenced in the exact same way as they had been imported or added to the route before this route was planned.

Comparing Alternative Optimization Types (Disable Optimization – Round Trip vs. Round Trip Optimization)

When planning Round Trip routes with Disabled Optimization, you can predefine the custom sequence of stops for the planned route that will start and end at the same address. Alternatively, the Round Trip optimization type allows you to plan and optimize routes that start and end at the same address, and all addresses within the given route are optimized for the most optimal and efficient sequence of stops. To plan and optimize a new Round Trip route, select the “Round Trip” optimization type when specifying the route’s settings. Once you added the addresses that you want to include into the route, tap on the “Optimize” button to plan and optimize the route accordingly.

When planning routes with the Round Trip optimization type, the planned and optimized route starts and ends at the same address, and all addresses that had been added or imported into the route in random order are automatically sequenced for the most optimal distance and travel time.

When planning Round Trip routes with Disabled Optimization, you will get noticeably different results than when you use the  Round Trip optimization type for optimizing your routes. Depending on the industry of your business activities and your particular routing needs, you may need to optimize routes with automatically sequenced stops or plan routes where stops are placed in a custom order. The Round Trip routing with Disabled Optimization on your Route4Me Android Route Planner allows you to set up a custom departure address (depot) from where the route will start, then all stops on the route will be placed in the custom-defined sequence, and finally, the route will end at the same address (depot) where it started.
