Do you use a GPS for routing multiple locations? Is your GPS route enough for your needs?

If you have a courier business or if you drive for a living or if you just need to visit multiple locations, you probably own a GPS device. A GPS route can sure make life much easier.

Field service, delivery or sales people can use a GPS as a business tool. One that can save them time while driving from place to place and navigating in unfamiliar territories. Getting from home to work and back is not a problem, you’ve done this a million times in any way you can think of, and you already know the best route. But if you are out and about, in a new territory, it will be a shame to waste your time on navigating and routing when there is a tool that can do that for you. You can save time, fuel and money, and save the environment while doing your job.

Some GPS devices can give you routes, not all models can. If your GPS supports routes, you can enter a few locations and set your device to connect them. Your GPS route cannot be changed and if you wish to plan it differently you’ll need to manually enter your locations, one by one. Whereas with a route planner, you can import a file with these locations and have all of them optimized within seconds. You can then see the full route and make any change you want. With a GPS, this just can’t be done.

Here is what we recommend:

1. Import your list of multiple locations and plan a route to cover all territories.

2. Watch all your routes on the map and make any manual changes you like.

3. Connect your GPS device to your computer and import your routes to your GPS.

4. Leave the office or home and start your day going green with an advantage – you have more time to visit more clients, and make more money.

FYI, if you don’t have a GPS, if your GPS doesn’t support routes or if you need to plan multiple routes at once – don’t go and buy a GPS. You can use a route planner as is, without importing a route plan to your GPS device. If you have multiple routes you can’t use a GPS anyhow:

1. Import your list of multiple locations and plan a route or multiple routes to cover all territories.

2. Watch all your routes on the map and make any manual changes you like.

3. Now simply send your route plan to your email and open it on your computer or mobile.

4. You’ll have a link to get driving directions and maps from Google Maps and you’ll do just fine with them, without the need to buy a new GPS.
