Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Based Route Importing
Route4Me’s Android app allows you to import addresses by means of the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) feature that scans JPG, PNG and PDF files with addresses and converts them into destinations. The Route4Me OCR feature is currently capable of scanning “FedEx Manifests” and “Amazon Flex Labels.” It is available for use only in the USA and enabled automatically based on the geolocation of the device.
To add destinations to a route using the OCR feature, first, go to “My Routes” from the navigation menu, tap on the route to which you want to add addresses, select “Open Route” and then tap “Add Destination” on the “Stops” screen.
Open the “OCR” tab by tapping on it.
Choose one of the document types that you want to upload:
– Upload PDF Document: Upload a PDF file from your device or a file hosting service;
– Select from Gallery: Upload a JPG or PNG image from the gallery on your device;
– Take Picture: Take a picture of a printed manifest or label.
The app scans the uploaded document and loads the addresses.
Once the scanning process is finished, you can check the scanned addresses. Tap “Save & Add New” to save the addresses and continue adding more or tap “Save & Close” to save the addresses and finish.
