Planning a New Route with the Same Addresses as in the Current Route Using the Route4Me iPhone App

Route4Me’s iPhone Route Planner is designed to make your routing operations and transactions as fast and flexible as possible, allowing you to plan, optimize, and navigate routes of any complexity on the go. Planning routes with the same addresses as in the route that is currently opened on your Route4Me iPhone app allows you to create a new route with the exact same destinations as in the current route but apply different optimization settings. Thus, depending on the defined optimization settings, the new route can have a different sequence of stops, route directions, travel time and distance, as well as other parameters. With Route4Me’s near real-time data synchronization, all routes that are planned using Route4Me’s iOS and Android mobile apps can be automatically synchronized with the Route4Me Web Platform and vice versa.

 

When you open a particular route, this route becomes the “Current Route” or “Active Route” (grayed out on the “Routes” screen). To plan a new route with the exact same addresses/destinations as in the route that is currently opened on your Route4Me iPhone app, first, tap on the “Add New Route” button and then select “Use the same addresses into this new route” accordingly.

Next, on the “Route Settings ” screen, first, input the name for the route into the “Route Name” field. To set the start time and date for the route, use the corresponding fields in the “Route Schedule” section.

In the “Optimization Type” section, you can choose one of the following optimizations:

  • – Roundtrip: The app optimizes the route (sequence of stops) and the route starts and ends at the same stop/address;
  • – Lock Last Destination: The app optimizes the route (sequence of stops) and ends the route at the current last added or uploaded stop;
  • – End Anywhere: The app optimizes the route (sequence of stops) and automatically chooses the most efficient and optimal stop for ending the route;
  • – Disable Optimization – Roundtrip: The app does not optimize the route and ends the route at the same stop where it starts (the first added or uploaded address);
  •  Disable Optimization – End Anywhere: The app does not optimize the route and chooses the last added or uploaded address as the end-stop of the route.

In the “Optimization for” section, you can set up the most efficient optimization for the route in terms of the “Shortest Distance,” “Shortest Time,” or “Shortest Time with Current Traffic.”

Depending on the particular needs of your business or unique business model, in the “Travel Mode” section, you can set up the route to be optimized for walking (pedestrian optimization) or for driving (vehicle optimization).

To finish adjusting the settings of the route, tap on the “Done”  button in the top right corner of the screen. Next, tap on the “Plan Route” button to optimize the route based on the predefined optimization settings.

When you use the addresses from the current route for planning a new route, you can use different optimization settings for the new route accordingly. Thus, when planning a new route with the same addresses/destinations as in the currently opened route, depending on the defined optimization settings, the new route can have a different sequence of stops, route directions, travel time and distance, as well as other parameters.
