It only takes a few minutes to get your first route built with Circuit, and a few seconds more to have it optimized into the best possible order.
Step 1: Add all of your stops
- On the main screen of Circuit, tap the 'Edit button'. Here you can add all of your stops.
- Type in the address you want to add. As you type, Circuit suggests nearby addresses.
- After selecting the correct address, you can add notes and other stop requirements.
- Repeat until you've added all of your stops.
Note: Circuit will automatically reorder all of your stops later, so don't worry about adding your stops in order.
Step 2: Route set up
Circuit will put your stops in the best order. To get the best routes, Circuit needs to know from where you leave in the morning, and return in the evening.
- Open the 'Edit Route' screen.
- Find 'Start Location' at the top and select 'Set'.
- Enter the address you start from (e.g. your home or depot).
- If you want Circuit to take into account expected traffic, make sure to set your 'Depart Time' as well.
- Repeat for your 'End Location'.
Step 3: Optimize your route
On the main screen, you'll now see the 'Optimize Route' button.
- Tap the button.
- Circuit will now create the best route for you by putting your stops in the most efficient order.
Note: If you didn't set a start and end location, Circuit uses your current location instead.
Step 4: Navigating from stop to stop
- If you're happy with your route, tap the 'Start Route' button.
- Your first stop will be automatically highlighted.
- Click 'Start' to navigate to your first stop.
- This will start navigation to your stop in your preferred navigation app. By default this is Google Maps, but you can change it to the any app you like.
- Once you arrive at the stop, switch back to Circuit and click 'Done'
- Repeat for your next stop
Congrats, that's all you need to know to get started with Circuit. Give it a go!
