Once the records are added to the route, you can build the route using one of the following travel modes:

  • Car: fastest

  • Car: shortest

  • Truck: fastest

  • Truck: balanced

  • Bicycle

  • Pedestrian

Cars and truck routes can use traffic data setting that will optimize your route based on live and historic traffic data.

Truck routes can use additional parameters. You can read more about truck routing in this article.

Meanwhile, for all of the travel modes that have routes with at least 4 points you can enable "Find optimal order of the points" setting, that will re-arrange all of your points (except the first and the last points) to make the route optimal.

Note, that you can add up to 25 points to a route that is optimized and up to 50 points if optimization is not enabled.

Saved places

You can save favorite locations and then re-use them for future routes. When creating a route you may click on the star icon and select one of your saved places:

You will then see a popup with saved places where you can select existing saved places or create new ones by clicking the plus sign.

Traveling preferences

In order to further define and build your routes in more accurate way you will need to set your traveling preferences. To do that simply click on the three dots at the top right corner and choose 'Traveling preferences':

You will then see a popup with different parameters like working hours, start/end location, default meeting duration, departure delay and navigation app.

Working hours

When planning a route, Mapsly will assume you will be departing at the start of your working day and expecting to arrive by the end of the working day.

Start location

When planning a route before the default departure time, Mapsly will assume you’ll be departing from this location; normally, your office or home address. You'll be able to change your departing location in the route or remove it at all. You may enter an address or GPS coordinates. If left blank, Mapsly will use your current location at the time of building a route.

End location

When planning a route before the default departure time, Mapsly will assume you’ll be always arriving at this location; normally, your office or home address. You'll be able to change your departing location in the route or remove it at all. You may enter an address or GPS coordinates.

Default meeting duration

When planning a route, Mapsly will assume that every meeting that does not have an calendar appointment has this duration, so the planned departure time will be determined as the planned arrival time + Default meeting duration + Departure delay

Departure delay

When planning a route, Mapsly will assume that you will be departing in this amount of time after your meeting ends, so the planned departure time will be determined as the planned arrival time + meeting duration + departure delay

Navigation app

Pick your preferred navigation app for the current device. On your other devices you may have select another navigation app selected in Traveling preferences.
