Route Settings

The Route settings let you customize the way routes are generated when you ask for directions.

To change the route settings, your account must be set up with the appropriate permissions.

If the setting Change Default Settings is not visible, your account has been set up to only allow administrators to change the route settings. Contact your manager if you feel that one of the route settings has been configured incorrectly.

If you have permissions to change the route settings, the options are:

Change Default Settings - Turn this option on if you want to change the route settings below. Otherwise, the default settings that your administrator has configured for your account are used. Note that you might not have permissions to enable this option.
Avoid U-Turns - Turn this option on to avoid U-turns on your routes. These turns might require unsafe maneuvers for larger vehicles. Turn this option off to allow U-turns on your routes. Note that this option cannot be disabled if Same-Side Routing is on.
Use Toll Roads - Turn this option on to allow the use of toll roads on your routes. Turn this option off to avoid toll roads.
Same-Side Routing - Turn this option on to depart from and approach a location without crossing the road. For example, if you drive on the right side in your country, the departing location and destination would always be on your right side.
Avoid Ferries - Turn this option on to avoid ferry crossings on your routes. Turn this option off to allow ferry crossings.
Use Historic Traffic - Turn this option on to use historic traffic information for routing and ETA (estimated time of arrival) calculations, for destinations less than 100 miles away.
Use Live Traffic - Turn this option on to use live traffic information for routing and ETA (estimated time of arrival) calculations.

 

Remember to always use common sense and obey all traffic rules when deciding if you should follow any suggested routes.

Vehicle Settings

This mobile application uses the information you provide about your vehicle to intelligently route around road features or areas that could prevent you from driving safely. For example, if you drive a large or heavy vehicle, there might be some bridges you cannot drive under or over. This information also ensures that, if available, hazardous cargo loads are routed along suitable DOT Hazardous Materials Routes.

The options available are:

Load Type - Select the type of load your vehicle carries. This setting defines any hazmat (hazardous materials) your vehicle carries.
Change Default Settings - If you have permission, you can turn this option on to change the vehicle settings listed below. If you do not make any changes, the default settings that your administrator has configured for your account are used. If you do not have permission to change the default settings, the Change Default Settings toggle control is not displayed, and instead you will see the message “Your administrator has specified that these settings cannot be changed”.
Dimension Units - Select the preferred unit of measure for your vehicle's dimensions.
Vehicle Type - Select the closest matching vehicle type from the list. This setting determines the default vehicle dimensions and associated routing behavior.
Vehicle Length - Enter the length of your vehicle. The default value depends on your Vehicle Type.
Vehicle Width - Enter the width of your vehicle. The default value depends on your Vehicle Type.
Vehicle Height - Enter the height of your vehicle. The default value depends on your Vehicle Type.
Weight Units - Select the preferred unit of measure for your vehicle's weight.
Gross Weight - Enter the gross weight of your vehicle, which includes the weight of the vehicle and cargo. The default value depends on your Vehicle Type.

 

Make sure that the vehicle type is set correctly, to avoid getting directions for the wrong type of vehicle; for example, getting directions for a car when you are driving a heavy-duty truck. You might not have permission to change your vehicle type.
