Using Third-Party Navigation Applications for Navigating Route4Me Routes on Android Devices
Route4Me Android Route Planner is designed to make your routing operations and logistics transactions as fast and flexible as possible, allowing you to plan, optimize, and navigate routes of any complexity on the go. In addition to providing integrated voice-guided navigation, Route4Me’s Android app also allows you to use any third-party navigation application that accommodates the particular needs of your business or unique business model. Being able to use any preferred third-party navigation app enables you to expand the range of your navigation options and combine them with Route4Me’s powerful route planning and optimization features for the most cost-effective results and smooth user experience.
To send the navigation information of a particular route stop or navigate the entire route using the preferred third-party navigation app on your Android device, first, open the corresponding route. To do so, go to “My Routes” from the navigation menu, tap on the route that you want to navigate and then select “Open Route” from the menu.
To navigate the entire route from your current location using a particular third-party navigation app, tap on the navigation icon in the bottom right corner of the route’s “Stops” screen and then select the preferred option from the list. By default, Route4Me’s Android Route Planner automatically detects and suggests all navigation apps that are installed on your Android device. Google routing and other third-party navigation apps work on a stop-by-stop basis, permitting you to navigate from your current location to one route stop at a time.
To get directions to a particular route stop from your current location using one of the third-party navigation apps on your Android device, first, tap on the stop to which you want to navigate, select “Send to Navigation App” from the menu and then select the preferred option from the list.
Alternatively, tap on the steering wheel icon next to the stop to which you want to navigate from your current location and then select the preferred third-party navigation app from the list.
If you want to use the selected third-party navigation app as your default navigation application, tap “Yes” when prompted.
After that, the Route4Me Android app will send the corresponding navigation information to the selected third-party navigation app, and you will be able to complete all your routing operations and logistics transactions using the preferred navigation solution.
