Using Contacts on Your Android Device with Route4Me

With Route4Me’s Android Route Planner, you can use contacts stored on your Android device for creating Route4Me Address Book entries, planning optimized routes, and more. When you allow Route4Me’s Android app to access contacts on your Android device, you control what data is accessed and how it is used. For example, if you want to use a contact from your phone as a destination on a particular route, Route4Me will not have full access to this contact and will not be able to manipulate this contact on your device in any way. Instead, our app allows you to copy the information of this contact from your phone into the Route4Me app so that you can use it as a separate piece of data.
