I love this utility. What would be great is if there was an option to navigate from point to point, or even to optimize the routing of the selected set of addresses. Or to be able to send the address points to something like google maps on the iPad that will allow for navigation.

I would love to have this feature. As of right now I can not find anywhere that I can get driving directions from an easy insert application like this. I would pay a small fee. I see this was put up 2 years ago.....

We are a Meals on Wheels program. To enter a list of addresses and have the directions print would be invaluable. Even better - to enter a list of addresses, and specify that we want these 250 people to be in 25 groups of 10 - and have it optimize the routes. Does you commercial application do this?

Is it possible to map all my customers for September, and and optimize the best driving route for the customers I select at the beginning of each day?

Will batchgeo allow me to scroll over locations, selecting them, and physically plot directions? I purchased batchgeo to help my sales force plan their driving routes. Is this the best solution for them?

We'd like to use this for our salesforce as well. We have thousands of accounts in a number of regions, and we'd like to use batchgeo to map all of the accounts, then sort the map down into zones by optimized driving routes for any number of points on the map that we highlight. Then, we'd like to be able to save that route as a "tab" under the master map. Our sales reps would use this tool on a daily basis.

We'd certainly pay for this.

What we need is to be able to click on nearby locations, let's say 10 from a map of 70, then get driving directions from one to the next to the next etc.

As it is now, I have to click on one point, copy and paste into a Google Maps set for directions, click Add a location, then redo the copy paste sequence over and over and over.

BUT, you guys have created a great product and I am a big fan of what you have done.

Using your apple store example. How do I get driving direction between point A, to C to E and D.

The reason for asking this is that I work for a company and I have 6 states that I cover with 75 stores. I want to plain out my week and go to different stores. If I could get driving directions to each store then I can figure the milage for the week. This way I will know if I will have enough time in the work to cover each store.

Optimized routes is the feature I've been searching for. I just don't have the coding ability to follow and implement all the Google Maps instructions.

I'd be using this feature for events with multiple locations. Event-goers could plot the most efficient route to get to their selected locations.

Will you be adding this feature? Any idea when it might launch?

Thanks,
Laura

I'd like to know there exist a route planner feature in Batchgeo maps. I can't find any, but maybe it's in the pro version?

Our sales team has just started using this product to map out our customers locations. It would be great if we could drag from one point to another in order to map out trips to certain areas so that we can be more efficient. Great product so far though! Keep up the good work.

I'd like to know if there is a feature that lets a user plan a route from a location that they give (for example their start location), to one of the locations on my Batchgeo map?

Route planner? I've been looking at Batchgeo today and it has a lot of great features - but I lacked a route planner. A Google maps interface-like way for the user to click and say I want to go there, and then she can get a suggested route. Is there one and am I not seeing it? Or is it a feature that Batchgeo maps do not have? Or only the Pro version?

Hey Guys,

this route planning tool is known as the "travelling salesman problem". It's hardly possible to calculate the perfect route because there are n-1! possible routes.

e.g. 25 places to go to = 6.204484e+23 possible routes to calculate... that's a number with 24 digits!

A (german?) student developed a tool to solve this - he told me there is a maximum of about 25 places to calculate the best route.

It's in german but not that hard to understand:

@batchgeo: i read about his code in his blog - I guess his algorithm is a big help for your project.

The simplest feature that I coul imagine for solving this issue for me would be one of two. The ability either to:

1. Click on and color dots, then sort addresses by colors.

2. Short of that, the ability to use the mouse to click, hold and drag to create a circle which would "capture" the addresses within that circle.

This would greatly shorten the time involved in creating delivery routes.
