You can access and edit your settings from the Settings section of the left hand menu bar.
These settings handle the defaults associated with your routes. The current default is displayed below the title. Click on a setting title to display the options.
The default navigation app is Google Maps. This means that when you click Navigate, Google Maps will open with the address of your Stop ready for navigation. There are several options to choose from if you prefer a different navigation app.
If you would like to select a navigation app that is not listed, try clicking the Other button. Then, when you click Navigate a list of the apps installed on your phone will pop up and allow you to select one. This allows Road Warrior to send the information, but we can't verify that they receive it.
TIP: If you know you'll be navigating in an area without internet you might want to try Sygic or Navigon for good options for offline mapping.
You can choose to navigate to an address or to a coordinate, depending on what you prefer or your company uses. Coordinates tend to be more helpful for more rural areas and addresses for urban areas. This can also depend on your selected navigating app. Your selected navigating app may display coordinates as an address (which can include a range of addresses, for example: 100-200 Main Street), but it will navigate you to the known coordinate of the stop.
You have three options for travel mode: Driving, Biking or Walking. Road Warrior uses the data from Google Maps to plan routes using based on these modes.
Optimize Mode allows you to optimize your route for either the fastest time or shortest distance.
This setting allows you to avoid any of the following: tolls, highways or ferries.
Select Miles or Kilometers for all distances.
Service time refers to the length of time that you will be visiting a certain Stop. This might be for just a few minutes if you are delivering a package or for an hour if you are conducting a sales call.
Editing the service time default will apply to all Stops created in the future. It will not change the service time on any current stops.
Tip: Want to edit a Service Time for just one Stop? Just click on the Stop in the List View or Map View and select Edit Stop. Edit the Service Time.
Search Options refers to what types of information will be searched when you click the Search icon at the top of the Map View or List View. The Search function is the most popular way to add Stops, since you simply need to type in at least 5 characters and a list of suggestions will display for you to select. Simply uncheck these options if you do not want to search them.
Contacts will search the contacts that you have saved in your Android contacts list with a valid address.
Rapid Entry Mode decreases the number of keystrokes for users who are inputting a large amount of stops. Rather than having to re-enter search mode, you will remain in search mode until you cancel out. This is useful for users who have a long list of addresses to input.
By turning this option ON, a pop up will display every time you click Optimize, asking if you would like to continue. You may want to turn on this option if you are optimizing large routes and you don’t want to accidently optimize a route and use up your daily allotment of optimized Stops.
Confirm Stop Removal
By turning this option ON, a pop up will display every time you click Remove Stop, asking if you are sure you would like to remove the Stop. This option is useful if you have a lot of information saved about your Stops and you don't want to accidentally remove a Stop.
Show Check-In Prompt
When switched ON, a full page Activity screen pops up every time a Stop is Checked-In. This is useful because it allows you to add notes to the Check-In immediately. Your Check-Ins are saved under the Activity tab in the left hand menu bar.
Confirm Search Result
This handy setting will pop up a small map once you select a result from the search bar. The purpose is to allow you to visually confirm the location of a Stop before adding it as either a Start Point, Favorite or Stop.
Stay Awake Mode
Stay Awake Mode allows you to keep your screen display on while using the Road Warrior app. Rather than having to unlock your phone while driving, the app will be continuously open. Keep in mind that this means that your phone will always be on and your battery will likely drain faster. Please use this setting according to your battery preference.
Sort Order changes the order of your stops while in list view. Sort by Order, Proximity will sort your stops by the order of that route and then the favorites that are not already on the route by their distance from your departure point. Sort by Order, Name will sort your stops by the order of that route and then the favorites that are not already on the route alphabetically. Sort by Proximity will sort your stops by their distance from your departure point. Sort by Name will sort your stops alphabetically.
