The Options dialog showing the Routing tab

The Options button on the top right opens the options dialog with several settings.


These options impact the route finding:

  • Optimize routes - If disabled, your destinations will not be re-ordered.
  • Home address - The default departure address that will automagically be added to the map each time.
  • Default departure time - Your departure time from which arrival times are calculated.
  • Default service time - The default service time, used for arrival times and time windows.
  • Geocoding preference - The geocoder service used for finding addresses on the map.
  • Suffix address - Text to be added to addresses when sent to the geocoding service. May be used to add a city, state or country.
  • Check address precise - If enabled, a warning is given when a [Geocoding|geocoding] service does not return a precise result, e.g. no street or house number.


These options impact the appearance of the user interface:

  • Map style - select another theme for the map
  • Retina maps - allow the use of high resolution maps (only on retina screens)
  • Maps in driving directions - add detailed maps for destinations in the driving directions
  • Show labels - add text labels for each location to the map next to the marker
  • Buttons with text - if disabled, the buttons on the website do not show text


These parameters are used for route finding and savings:

  • Unit of distance/volume/weight, currency - whatever you like, need or know. Note that you'll need to save the options to have the new units displayed in the next three settings:
  • Avg fuel economy, fuel costs and avg carbon emission - only used for savings calculation, has no impact on optimization.
  • Speed - the percentage of the normal speed to use in planning. Use 100% for normal speed. If our routes are too fast, e.g. total travel time is too small, use a value below 100%. If our routes are too slow, use a value above 100%.
