Map Layers

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.

“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.
