There are many different settings in Road Warrior that you can use to help customize the app to your needs.
You can access the main app settings from the Settings section of the left hand menu bar.
The main settings menu contains route defaults and navigation settings.
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.s
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 Here, 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.
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.
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.
Show Check-In Prompt
When switched ON, a full page History 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 History tab in the left hand menu bar.
Sort order settings are in the upper right of all the list views (stops, routes, favorites, schedules, history). This affects the order that items in the list are shown in, which can be helpful for organizing your data.
Planner Sort Order
Sort Order in the planner 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.
The remaining lists have similar sorting criteria as well.
Search options affect searching for new locations to add to Road Warrior as a stop or favorite. You can access search options by initiating a search (tapping the raspberry (+) button in the planner or favorites list) and then tapping the settings button to the right of the search box.
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 6 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.
