So this is a bit of a sticky one and not sure if there is a solution ??

 

 

 

I have just purchased a new businesses which is a coffee van with a set route which I am not familiar with yet.

 

What i would like to do is programme the route in to my phone or GPS and let it guide me in the most efficient way.

 

The run has about 12 stops on it in a 10km radius (about) I have a Nuvi 1390 and a S5 smartphone.

 

I do not want to get in to complicated programming or anything like that but if anyone has a solution would love to hear it.

I am fairly sure you can now set multiple locations in Google Maps.

Nuvi's have a trip planner function, program the points you want to stop, then create a new trip, add the locations, then select the sort function and sort by most efficient, then start the trip.

Google maps I believe do not have multiple destinations any more.
Would be happy to be proved wrong on this though.

The 1390 supports route planning, download the manual it explains it quite well

Checked back on my phone this morning, and at least on my iPhone you are right. Not sure if the Android version has more options? in that case the best I can think of is to save your locations in favorites, when you are ready to go to the next site just select it from the list and away you go. It does however sound like your GPS maybe the way to go. Other option into simply buy a new GPS, they are not that expensive now and it will be a business expense anyway.
