In-App Voice-Guided Navigation – Android Route Planner
Route4Me’s Android Driver Route Planner app will help you create, optimize, manage, and navigate complex routes on your Android device. Route4Me’s Android in-app voice-guided navigation is now fully integrated into the app for your drivers’ safety and comfort.
As opposed to always keeping an eye on a smartphone’s screen, voice-guided navigation allows delivery drivers, field sales reps, field service technicians, etc., to focus only on the road so that they can be much safer. Moreover, Route4Me’s integrated GPS navigation eliminates the need to switch between a navigation app and a route planning app. This way, you can minimize accident and liability risks, increase drivers’ productivity levels, and decrease driver fatigue.
When using Route4Me’s in-app GPS navigation, you can avoid discrepancies or conflicts between the algorithms of Route4Me’s Route Planner apps for Android or iOS and third-party GPS navigation apps, such as Google Maps, Apple Maps, Waze, etc. You don’t have to share navigation directions between apps anymore.
To generate the most accurate navigation directions, you can navigate by addresses or destinations’ coordinates. GPS coordinates are particularly useful whenever you have to navigate to a specific point on the map or a stop with an incomplete address.
You can interact with the map via gestures. You can also change the map’s perspective to a 3D mode that adds an extra dimension to the map and allows you to see 3D buildings, streets, etc.
Android In-App Voice-Guided Navigation
To start navigating an optimized route, open this route from My Routes in the navigation menu, and tap on the Start Route button to start the opened route. Next, tap on the Navigation Icon next to the route address to which you want to navigate from your current location.
After that, select the Route4Me In-App Navigation from the list of all available navigation options. Once the route navigation is started, proceed to navigate the optimized route in near real-time with turn-by-turn voice directions.
At the top of the navigation map, you can see the turn directions for the next maneuver. Every next turn is automatically voiced by the app. At the bottom of the navigation map, you can see the estimated time of arrival at the last route destination and the estimated remaining navigation distance.
Since Route4Me’s Android in-app navigation factors in traffic and other near real-time conditions, the navigation ETA can change accordingly while navigating the route. As the route progresses, the time remaining before the driver arrives at the last route stop is automatically updated in near real-time.
For maximum convenience, safety, and productivity, you can adjust your navigation map using the following gestures:
- Pinch to Zoom: zoom in and out on any location on the navigation map. By zooming in, you can get a detailed look at street addresses, building corners, building shapes, facility names, etc.
- Two Finger Drag Up: turn on the 3D navigation map perspective.
- Two Finger Drag Down: turn on the 2D navigation map perspective.
- Two Finger Rotation: rotate the navigation map to look at your current location, route stops, and navigation driving lines from different angles.
- One Finger Drag: move around the navigation map.
To adjust the navigation settings, tap on the three dots menu icon in the bottom right corner of the app. You can adjust the voice directions settings and voice navigation language. To download a specific navigation language, tap on the Download Voice Packages button and then download the preferred language package.
For more convenience, you can switch between the Continuous Navigation and Single Stop Navigation modes. To do so, go to Settings from the navigation menu, scroll to the In-App Navigation Mode section, and then tap to select the preferred navigation mode.
Continuous Route Navigation provides directions for the entire route, from the first stop on the route to the last, showing the estimated time and distance for the whole route.
Single Stop Route Navigation navigates between your current location and the selected route destination separately.
iPhone Route Planner In-App Voice-Guided Navigation
In addition to the ability to use various third-party navigation apps like Google Maps navigation iPhone app, Google Maps iPad navigation app, Apple Maps directions app, etc., Route4Me also features route planner integrated voice-guided navigation.
With Route4Me’s integrated navigation, you’ll get the most optimal walking directions, bicycling directions, and GPS driving directions with voice right within the route planner.
Route4Me’s voice driving directions app navigation map is extremely detailed and adjustable, providing the same high level of detail as the best in the business, i.e., Google Navigation iPhone app or Apple Maps iPhone app.
For your convenience, you can still use turn-by-turn directions from the Apple Maps app, Waze Navigation & Live Traffic, TomTom Go Navigation, CoPilot GPS Sat-Nav & Traffic, and other apps. You can send a Route4Me optimized route to the Apple Maps driving directions app or even the Uber ride-sharing app with just a touch of a button. Route4Me can detect any third-party app on your iPhone or iPad, and Apple Maps sends location information from the route planner to any preferred navigation app.
