The Add Stop button facilitates quick trip planning, giving dispatchers the option to enter a city and state or just a zip code. Stop options include Current Location, Pick, Drop, and Deadhead. The Recalculate button computes the distance between the entered locations and displays the mileage and the resultant Trip CPM based on the entered Rate.
Further refinement of the travel route can be done by simply dragging waypoints on the displayed Google map. For ease of use, the map can be expanded to full screen using the button in the upper-right hand corner. Traffic information is overlaid for additional awareness and decision making. Switching to satellite or street view can assist with critical last-mile navigation.
