OCR Address Scanner – Android Route Planner App
Route4Me’s Android Route Planner app provides seamless continuity throughout the entire multi-stop route planning, optimization, navigation, and completion process. For your convenience and efficiency, Route4Me’s Android Route Optimization app features integrated optical character recognition (OCR) address scanner.
In detail, you can easily scan and add addresses to routes in seconds without having to add each address manually. Since it’s integrated, you don’t need any additional scanner apps, OCR software, document scanner apps, or cam scanners for mobile scanning and text recognition. Furthermore, Route4Me’s OCR address scanner can detect even parts of addresses from any surface, in different fonts, or even handwritten addresses, and automatically suggest available address options.

Depending on your OCR scanner settings, the app will automatically scan and add the address or you can tap the camera icon to capture the address. After that, Route4Me will automatically detect and geocode the address. Depending on how clear and full the scanned address is, Route4Me may suggest one or multiple address options.
Next, you can edit the selected address or tap the “Add to Route” button to add the scanned address. After that, you can check the number of scanned addresses and then tap the “Go to Route” button to add the address and return to the route. Accordingly, you can then tap the “Add Another Destination” button to keep adding more addresses.
To use the OCR address scanner for adding addresses to a planned route, tap the plus icon at the top of the opened route. Next, tap the camera icon to launch the OCR address scanner and then use it to scan the preferred addresses.
After scanning and adding one or multiple addresses, tap the “Go to Route” button. The scanned and added addresses will be automatically added to the end of the route. Accordingly, you can re-optimize the route to automatically sequence the route with the newly added stops.
