2. Choose one optimization option from the following three supported modes:

Straight-line distance: Generate the road with shortest straight-line distance.

Kilometers of Road: Generate the road with the shortest total distance.

Time windows: Generate the route according to a pre-set time. For example: If you set 10 a.m. as your time to arrive at the half-way point of a route, vMAP will generate a route that would allow you to arrive at the half-way point by 10 a.m.

3. Choose the points for optimisation.

4. To recalculate the route after the optimisation, check the checkbox re-calculate the route at the bottom of the window.
5. To save the optimization settings and the optimize point order results, click on Execute button.

Operation 2. Set the length for each stop

Select a point, then click on image1547 icon to open the Time Parameters window. Set the length of time to stay at a point [Stay], the arrival time [Reachable (from)], and the departure time [Reachable (to)], then click on Execute button to save the settings.
