Getting started with Circuit: add stops to your route and optimize your route

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 any app you like.
  • Once you arrive at the stop, switch back to Circuit and click 'Done'
  • Repeat for your next stop
