Once the route is planned and optimized, it is saved into the synchronized Routes List with all the other routes. As soon as the route is saved, users can navigate that route using the in-app voice-guided navigation or any third-party navigation app, such as Apple Maps, Waze, HERE WeGo, Google Maps, etc.
