Manage Location Settings on iOS Route Planner App
Route4Me’s iPhone Route Planner aims to make your routing activities more flexible and enable you to easily plan, optimize and navigate complex routes on the go. For the maximum performance of your Route4Me iPhone route planning app, make sure that you enable the route planner location permission and you have a stable internet connection on your iPhone.
