  • Go on to the “On Ride” tab, and there you can see a “Skip” button just before the “Navigation” button. By pressing the button, the stop will be skipped, but it will not be completed.

Applying the navigate as entered setting

It often happens that drivers want to proceed the way they think will be best or according to the list of addresses from the office. For that case, Zeo Route provides the “Navigate as Entered” feature, which navigates you according to the addresses’ list as they are entered in the app.

Follow these simple steps to apply the navigate as entered setting:

  • You can check the “Navigate as Entered” checkbox while you are adding the stops. This will start the navigation in the way you have entered.
  • If you are on the “On Ride” section then press on the “+” button and a list of details will be displayed.
