Export Routes to GPS Devices (TomTom, Garmin, etc.)

 

GPS navigation devices are designed for guiding you from point A to point B by showing the right driving directions on real-life roads. However, most, if not all, GPS devices for vehicles are not suitable for planning routes with more than 2 destinations that need to be visited with the best ETAs and with the shortest distances. With Route4Me’s dynamic routing software and proprietary route optimization algorithm, you can plan and optimize the most efficient and cost-effective multi stop routes with hundreds of thousands of addresses and multiple advanced constraints and then export the route to the GPS navigation devices of your choice. Thus, you can get the best ETAs and the shortest distances for navigating the routes of virtually any complexity using your own GPS navigation devices.
