Start your engines, getting started with Road Warrior is easy! Below are the first few steps to get you going on your route.
Step 0: Log in
When you first open your RoadWarrior App, you will be greeted with our welcome page.
Tap Get Started, then enter your email/username on the next page.

Step 1: Add Stops
Center your map on the area where your stops are located. Click on the search button and begin to type an address.
Warrior Tip: the search button is the Route Red circle located in the bottom right corner of your screen.
Once you type in at least 6 characters, results will populate. Select your desired address, and box will pop up to let you visually confirm the Stop.
Tap Add Stop once you confirm you have the correct address.
Repeat this process for each of the Stops on your route, then tap Exit when you're all done.
Warrior Tip: if you don't know the address, press-and-hold on the Map where you want your Stop, and select Add Stop.
If your start address is different from your current location, select the Green Flag on your map or list, then Update Start to change your starting location.
Or, press-and-hold anywhere on the map,then tap update Start in the pop up menu.
Step 2: Optimize
Select Get Route at the bottom of the screen to put the finishing touches on your route.
If you want to adjust your route settings before you optimize, tap Show Options. Here you can manipulate Settings like including departure time and location, optimization mode, or mode of transportation.
Tap the Optimize bar at the bottom of the screen. The RoadWarrior algorithm will create your perfect Route, taking many different factors into consideration, including traffic conditions, road speed, and distance.
When your route is ready, your Route Summary will briefly display on the screen, indicating:
• Travel Time (your driving time)
• Total Time (driving time + service time at each stop)
• Travel Dist (distance you will travel)
Warrior Tip: You can also find this information by selecting the Route Info button in the lower right corner of the screen.
Your optimal route will appear as a purple line between each stop.
Warrior Tip: The route path is designed to provide a high level overview, but will not display turn-by-turn directions. Continue to Step 3 for instructions on using the Navigate feature to get exact directions between stops.
Step 3: Navigate
Let's put that Route to use and Navigate to your first Stop!
Select Stop 1 on your route and tap Navigate.
Your mapping app of choice will launch with the address pre-loaded for navigation. The default is Google Maps and can be changed under Settings.
When you are ready to drive to the next Stop, switch back to RoadWarrior to repeat the process.
Warrior Tip: If you have Android 7 or above, you can quickly switch back to Road Warrior by double tapping the Android task/overview button (the square button next to home/back).
When you arrive at a Stop, you should Check In to confirm that it is complete, and keep track of your progress on the map.
To Check In, select the Stop and then Check In.
The Stop pin on the map now displays a check mark, and a record of your Check In is stored under History.
If the Route is optimized again, any stop with a check mark will no longer be included in the route.
Warrior Tip: You can remove a Check In by selecting on the Stop, then selecting Restore.
Congrats! You've made it through the guide, and you're well on your way to becoming a weathered Warrior. Check out other sections of the guide for more details and explanations.
