This pre-navigation window will appear showing the destination QF Number; nearest street address; distance and approximate travel time at the bottom of the screen. Use this screen to confirm your destination.
Selecting Start will take you to Google Maps ™ for turn by turn navigation instructions until you reach your destination.
When destinations are “off road”, the app will provide driving directions to the roadway nearest the destination (yellow marker) while also displaying the actual destination (pink marker). The on-road navigation is the same as above. Google Maps ™ will navigate to the roadway nearest the off-road destination or to the nearest street address. It will announce “You have reached your destination.”
Google Maps ™ does not provide “off-road” navigation; therefore, the user is required to switch between Google Maps ™ and QuickFind Numbers.
You will need to switch back to QuickFind Numbers. Typically the best way is to use the phone’s Home Key. Re-open QFNs by tapping.
Re-opening QuickFind Numbers shows your current location and the destination location. A pop-up window will instruct you to click on the pedestrian mode button above to get walking directions. Hit Start.
The screen converts into the pedestrian mode, showing the distance from the destination flag plus an arrow pointing in the direction of travel.
Open side tab and select Find Car.
Select the mode of transportation. (Pedestrian mode is the default method. Select the auto button if you want to drive to the location.)
The screen will show the location of the parked car (red dot); the distance away from the car and a directional arrow showing the direction of the car. (NOTE: The directional arrow works like a compass. Hold the phone parallel to the ground for best results.) The satellite view will assist in providing the best route. Walk in the direction of the large arrow if possible.
Set a waypoint at your current location by naming the location and hitting OK. You can type or use the microphone to dictate your waypoint name. You can also enter the QFN of a remote location for a meet-up.
