    Hi folks.

    I work with a cable company, and every morning i am handed 40 addresses to go to throughout the day. I see everyone else in the office with map books and photo copiers, but i know there must be a way to plan my route with GPS and an Android app.

    I use google maps all the time, along with google navigator.

    I need to find an app that i can enter a bunch of addresses into, and it finds a route, and has a GPS interface, or atleast gives me the best order of addresses so i can then plot them into GPS seperately.

    Any ideas here??

    This would help me out big time!!!!

    thanks, Luke

    I know for gmaps online, if you have your address, and send it to your email, then when u check your email on the phone and open the link, gmaps will open and I think you can nivaigate from there.

    Google Maps has the "Navigate" option which acts like a car-GPS. It's pretty crappy but it works. On the X10 make sure your phone stays "awake" or the app will quit! This is actually pretty dumb.

    Last two posters... read his original post. He already uses maps and navigator. He's looking for a route planner.

    Edit Have just asked OH who is in transport industry and there are expensive pc programmes that will do this kind of planning but he didn't think there would be one for android... too complicated.

    I am always happy to be proved wrong tho!!!
