When using the Lock Last Destination optimization type, Route4Me’s iOS Route Planner starts the optimized route from the predefined departure address, places all imported or added addresses into the most optimal visitation sequence, and ends the route at the locked address (the last imported or added address).

Comparing Alternative Optimization Types (Lock Last Destination vs. End Anywhere)

The Lock Last Destination optimization type starts the optimized route from the predefined departure address, places all imported or added addresses into the most efficient sequence, and ends the route at the last imported or added address (locked address). Alternatively, the End Anywhere optimization type allows you to optimize routes with the predefined start address, the most efficient sequence of stops, and the most optimal system-defined end destination. To plan a route with 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 departure destination, have the most efficient sequence of stops, and end at the most optimal destination.

When planning Lock Last Destination routes with the predefined end destination, you will get different results from the routes optimized using the End Anywhere optimization type that allows Route4Me’s iOS Route Planner to determine the most optimal end address automatically. Depending on your specific routing and business needs, you may need to plan routes with automatically selected route end destination or define where your routes should end manually. With Route4Me’s iPhone Route Planner, you can optimize your routes for the most efficient and cost-effective sequence of stops and manually define the destination at which you want each of your optimized routes to end.
