How to add waypoints?

Waypoints are locations, that you want to go through along your route before you reach your destination.
You can add just one, or multiple waypoints to your route. The route will be adjusted automatically after adding any waypoint. Please note that if you add multiple waypoints, they will be ordered in such a way that you will drive the shortest distance between them. The possibility to adjust the order of the waypoints in a custom way will likely be possible in one of the future app versions.
There are a few different options for how you can select the waypoints:

On the Route Selection screen – after you have selected the destination, but before you start navigating with the route, you see the Route Selection screen. Here you can select a waypoint by pressing and holding on a location directly over the map.
Just tap anywhere on the map, and keep holding your finger on the screen. After about 1-2 seconds, a grey location marker will appear and you can move your finger to place it where you want the waypoint to be. You can zoom in and move around in the map before you use this method, to be better able to accurately place the waypoint marker.

After the route is started, in navigation mode – there you can select a waypoint in two ways:

  • Searching for the waypoint. To make the search bar appear, open the quick menu by tapping the 3 dots icon in the lower right corner of the map. Then use the Search screen to find your intended waypoint, select it, and press the „Add as waypoint“ button.
  • Selecting it on the map. In navigation mode, you can also freely swipe around and zoom in/out of the map. When you find the location where you want your waypoint, use the same press-and-hold method as on the route overview screen. Just tap anywhere on the map, and keep holding your finger on the screen. After about 1-2 seconds, a grey location marker will appear and you can move your finger to place it where you want the waypoint to be.

Cancelling a waypoint
You can always cancel the next waypoint on your route and continue to the next one, or to your destination, by opening the Quick menu with the 3 dots icon in the bottom right corner of the map, and selecting the option „Skip waypoint“. This option will be present only when a route has been started, that has a waypoint added to it.
