Customizing the Map Settings
The route editor supports two different map styles: “Map View” and “Matrix View.”
There are two styles available for the “Map View”: “Satellite” and “Map.”
Use the buttons at the top right corner of your map to select the map mode.
The default view is the “Map” style in the “Map View.”
You can view a close-up of each location by clicking the “Matrix” button. The locations on the route will be displayed in grid.
The “Satellite” style of the “Map View” provides a satellite view of the route region.
The “Map Settings” allow you to add layers to your map and to bring up additional information about your route.
The driving lines are checked by default. You should keep them on your map if you want to have a visual representation of the turn-by-turn directions for your route.
Un-checking the driving lines will display the distance between stops in a beeline. This view is also available if you check the “Original Route” box.
Check the “Traffic” box for a view of local traffic.
Checking the “Address Book” option will bring up all of your address book contacts on your route map. If you have several contacts that are very close together, you can check the “Clustering” box to display those addresses as a single cluster, rather than individual pins.
You can also bring up your defined territories by checking the corresponding box.
If you have any avoidance zones set for the routing area, you can check the “Avoidance Zone” box to display them on the route map.
To display the geofenced area associated with each address, check the “Geofences” box.
You can also check the “Geofence Activities” box to show the geofence trigger locations on the map.
You can open the driving directions on the right side of your map.
You can also view the activity feed for that route.
To display the destinations which have a note associated with them, check the “Notes” box.
Finally, to the display the estimated arrival times for each destination, check the “ETA’s” box.
Note that you can bring up multiple layers at once, depending on what information is relevant for your routing purposes.
“Business” and plan subscribers and up can view multiple read-only, real-time weather layers on their route map. The layers display the weather conditions for a specific area. Check the “Current Weather” box to view all available options and to display the temperatures for selected areas on the map.
The following weather layers are available:
– Storm reports;
– Snow depth;
