Manage Location Services – Android Route Planner

 

Route4Me’s Android Route Planner aims to make your route optimization activities more flexible and enable you to easily plan, optimize and navigate complex routes with multiple destinations on the go. For the maximum performance of your Route4Me Android multi stop route planner app, make sure that your device has a stable internet connection as well as turned on location services. Setting up the right route planner location settings and enabling the location services on your device allows you to fully benefit from such features as integrated and third-party navigation, automatic visitation and departure triggers, precise address geocoding, geofence triggered forms and alerts as well as other features that can be valuable for your business. Route4Me also understands that you and your team members may not always have 100% signal strength and enables you to use the route planner offline. The Android Offline Mode allows you to perform certain routing activities even when out of signal.
