Android Navigation Precision – Adjusting the Address and GPS Coordinates Navigation Precision Settings on Your Route4Me Android Route Planner

Route4Me’s Android Route Planner is designed to make your routing operations and transactions as fast and flexible as possible, allowing you to plan, optimize, and navigate routes of any complexity on the go. In addition to the Route4Me integrated voice-guided navigation, Route4Me’s Android app can also be used with various third-party navigation applications. Depending on what third-party navigation app(s) you want to use and what type of locations you need to include into your routes, you can adjust the Navigation Precision settings on your Route4Me Android Route Planner to navigate by Addresses (full address names) or by GPS Coordinates (latitude and longitude coordinates). For example, such navigation apps as Google Maps provide better results when navigating by Addresses rather than by GPS Coordinates, while other navigation apps can use latitude and longitude coordinates only. Alternatively, if the route destinations that you need to visit don’t have official address names, you can add the GPS coordinates of each location into your Route4Me optimized routes and then send the GPS coordinates of the corresponding route destinations to the preferred navigation app(s).

 

To adjust the Navigation Precision settings on your Route4Me Android Route Planner, first, go to “Settings” from the navigation menu and then scroll to the “Navigation Precision” section. In the “Navigation Precision” settings section, you can select whether you want your Route4Me Android Route Planner to send Addresses (full address names) or GPS Coordinates (latitude and longitude coordinates) data to the third-party navigation apps that you use.

To use a particular third-party navigation app for navigating to your Route4Me route destinations, first, open the preferred route. After that, tap on the steering wheel icon next to the route stop to which you want to navigate. Alternatively, tap on the stop to which you want to navigate, select “Send to Navigation App” from its menu and then select the preferred navigation app from the list (i.e., Google Maps).

When your Navigation Precision settings are set to “GPS Coordinates,” your Route4Me Android Route Planner will send GPS coordinates (latitude and longitude coordinates) of the corresponding route destination to the selected third-party navigation app. By default, once you send the GPS coordinates of a particular route destination to the preferred third-party navigation app, the selected navigation app will automatically generate navigation directions from your current location to the GPS coordinates of the corresponding route stop.

When your Navigation Precision settings are set to “Address,” your Route4Me Android Route Planner will send geocoded and autocompleted addresses (full address names) to the selected third-party navigation app. By default, once you send the address of a particular route destination to the preferred third-party navigation app, the selected navigation app will automatically generate navigation directions from your current location to the corresponding route address.
