Disable Optimization and Round Trip – iPhone Route Planner App
Route4Me’s iPhone Route Planner is designed to make your routing operations and transactions as fast and flexible as possible, allowing you to effortlessly plan, optimize, and navigate routes of any complexity on the go. To ensure that you can plan and optimize routes that meet the specific routing and operating requirements of your particular business or business model, Route4Me’s iOS Route Planner supports multiple route optimization types. Planning Roundtrip routes with Disabled Optimization allows you to define the same start and end destination for a new route and have all route stops within the route placed in any preferred custom sequence. Moreover, Route4Me’s iOS Route Planner provides precise and user-friendly turn-by-turn driving and navigation directions that will allow you to visit all stops on your routes in the most cost-effective and time-efficient way possible.

To plan a new Roundtrip route with Disabled Optimization, first, go to “Routes” from the navigation menu at the bottom of the screen and then tap on the “Add New Route” button. To plan a new route and add new addresses, select the “Set Brand New Route” option. To learn more about using the addresses from the current route for planning a new route, visit this page. Next, select the “Disable Optimization – Roundtrip” optimization type and then fill out the rest of the route’s settings to your preference (learn more).
After specifying the route’s settings, you need to set up the departure address from which the route will start and at which the route will end. To do so, tap on the “Set Your Departure Address” button and then add the departure address using the preferred method.
After adding the route’s departure and end address, you can add or import the addresses that you want to include into the route. To do so, tap on the “Add Another Destination” button and then add or import addresses into the route using the preferred method. To learn more about all available address addition and import methods on Route4Me’s iOS Route Planner, visit this page. After adding the preferred addresses into the route, tap on the “Plan Route” button to plan the route accordingly.
Once the route is planned, this route will start and end at the same predefined address and all addresses after the route’s depot address will be placed in the exact same sequence as they had been imported or added to the route before it was planned.
When planning Roundtrip routes with Disabled Optimization, Route4Me’s iOS Route Planner plans a new route with the exact same sequence of stops as they had been added or imported into the route before this route was planned. Thus, when you disable the route optimization on your Route4Me app, you can define any preferred custom sequence of stops for your routes.
Comparing Alternative Optimization Types (Disable Optimization – Roundtrip vs. End Anywhere)
The Roundtrip routing with Disabled Optimization allows you to predefine any preferred custom sequence of stops for your planned routes and select the depot from where your routes start and where they end. Alternatively, the End Anywhere optimization type takes all imported or added addresses and places them into the most efficient sequence with the most optimal last address. To use the End Anywhere optimization, select the “End Anywhere” optimization type when specifying the route’s settings.
Once the route is planned, this route will start from the predefined depot, have the most efficient sequence of destinations, and end at the most optimal address.
When planning Roundtrip routes with Disabled Optimization, you will get different results from when you are optimizing routes using the End Anywhere optimization type. Depending on the specific industry of your business and your particular operating needs, you may need to optimize routes with system-defined stops sequences or plan routes where stops are placed in a custom order. Route4Me’s iPhone Route Planner gives you full control over your routes. The Roundtrip routing with Disabled Optimization allows you to set up a custom departure address (depot) from where the route will start, then all stops on the route will be visited in the custom-defined sequence, and finally, the route will end at the same address (depot) where it started.
