Once you've created your route and optimized in Road Warrior, the next step is to Navigate! Read along to get the best advice on navigating from within the app.
After hitting Optimize, Road Warrior will show you the best route for you to take to hit every stop, represented by the purple line. Each stop has a number associated with it to indicate the order of the stops in the route.
You can also view the stops in order in List View for a complete look at your route.
How to Navigate
From either List View or Map View, select your stop labeled #1. In the menu that pops up, you will see "Navigate" on the right side.
Road Warrior will automatically enter your stop information. Just hit go and you're on the road!
After you arrive at your stop, press the "Back to Road Warrior" arrow on your phone to return to the Road Warrior app with ease.
When you return to the app, press Check-In to keep track of your progress on the map with checked off stop pins.
Your Checked-In Stop will now have a check mark on it (see red square below). Tap Stop #2 and Navigate and continue for each stop until your route is complete.
- "I don't like the default navigation app, can I change it?"
Yes, you can!
First go to the main menu and hit Settings
Under "Route Defaults" select "Navigation App"
You will be able to select your default application to open after selecting a stop in Road Warrior. Make sure you select an application that you have installed on your device.
- The address in my navigation app is not correct / I'm being navigated to the wrong location
We integrate with navigation apps by sending them either the coordinates of your pin, or the address of your pin. This can be changed in Road Warrior settings.
We recommend Coordinate as this ensure that you will be sent to the exact same GPS coordinates as the pin in Road Warrior. The address name may be incorrect as the nav app may try to guess what is at the location, however the important thing is that the location will be the same.
Address leaves more interpretation for the navigation app to determine the gps position of the address, and can sometimes result in an incorrect location.
We also recommend using the Here navigation app as we have found that it interfaces the best with Road Warrior.
- I drive a truck, how can I use Road Warrior?
Consider downloading an offline Navigator like Sygic. Sygic has a truck friendly version and is optimized for offline navigation using TomTom maps.
