The navigator plots the optimal and shortest route, indicating the approximate place of arrival. To plot a route, you need to enter the address of two points. It is not possible to specify the location on the map. Only the endpoint can be specified.
The application allows you to plot a route from one point to another on the map or by entering an address. Paths are marked in places on the map to shorten the route. Movement tracking is only available on the map.
MAPS.ME is the only navigator that takes into account changes in terrain when building a route. Thanks to this, it is easy to understand which section you need to go up, and where to go down.
In Google maps, it is possible to build routes for walking navigation. To do this, you need to specify the starting and ending points of the route or mark both places on the map. At the same time, the program informs that not all factors may be taken into account in the process of building a route.
When building a route, the user is marked with one or more alternative routes with an approximate arrival time. If the orientation only on the map causes difficulties, the application provides instructions in steps: go a certain distance straight, or turn right after 150 m, or turn left after 80 meters, etc.
