How to add areas ad-hoc in the RouteBuilder?

Gain even more flexibility when building your route: Add areas ad-hoc

Ad-hoc areas will allow you to add any location into an itinerary while planning. This gives you even more flexibility to plan your routes exhaustively and to choose any locations as stops. Previously, only a subset of areas could be used in itineraries (Nezasa or Custom areas). Now, the world is your oyster!

By default, we favour known areas to add as stops, but with the advanced search functionality, you can retrieve any location recognised by Google. To set even more precise locations, you can pinpoint locations directly on the map and name them yourself.

 

Steps to add areas ad-hoc via "Add Stop": 

  • In the RouteBuilder click on Add Stop
  • Search for the desired area
  • If the area cannot be found, use the provided advanced search 
  • Add the area via Google

Steps to add areas ad-hoc via "Map":
