When the Route4Me application is installed on an iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone, it begins to submit a GPS tracking beacon to the central Route4Me system every 60 seconds.

If a specific route is open when the device is in transit, the location tracking history will be assigned to that route so that a dispatcher, analyst, or manager can playback the device travel history.

All routes that are created through the system automatically have driving directions generated. Driving directions are instantly emailed to the account holder after the route is planned.
