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.

Enabling the location services on your iPhone allows you to fully benefit from such features as real-time navigation using the in-app voice-guided navigation or any third-party navigation app (such as Apple Maps, Waze, HERE WeGo, Google Maps, etc.), 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 provides the Offline Mode for iOS devices that enables you to perform certain routing activities even when out of signal.
