Route planning

I'm not all local. I have an out of town bulk route as well as a fairly large FCVG route. I'd rather spend a few bucks a month to let the app optimize my 3-400 locations and always have them saved, rather than re-entering and doing 25 at a time. I've been using Voyager up until now,which is free, but it only optimized the first 20-30 total stops and I maxed out the number of locations easily.

I prefer Garmin,  with their program I can build a 60 stop route and splits it into  2 or 3 smaller routes for the gps. 

Then every time I run that route I just pull it up.  It's free when you have a Garmin GPS. 

A Little slow on bigger routes unless you have a faster computer,  I use my laptop. 

I haven't changed my mint route in about a year?

where can I find this voyager program? I cant see myself doing more than 25 locations on a daily, in or out of town, if you have workers, they wont be able to more than you can, planning 3 - 400 locations is great, but whose going to do them all in one day? there's a reason it only optimizes the 1st 30 locations, you're not doing more than that in any day, and what happens when you don't finish the route? you have to go through the remaining 370, 340, 310 and so on, waste of time. MapQuest I put in my locations and I'm gone, you cant optimize a route once you're on the road, if you hit traffic, you're in it! leave the rest to gps on your phone, that's the best you'll get with up to date mapping.

My route driver does about 25 in a day bulk,  but what about over night trips? 

He also does 60+ on mint boxes in one day. If I was doing it,  I would service 30+ bulk in a day.  

Mapquest can also burn your phone out if using daily.  That's why we use gps. A lot cheaper than a new phone.
