Trek Planner

Overview

The Trek Planner provides you with travel directions via public transit. Just specify the start and end points to get step-by-step directions from A to B.

You can save frequently used queries for quick access (like going from your current location to your home address) and save generated directions for reviewing off-line.

Usage

The Trek Planner screen is composed of three tabs: New Query for starting a new trip, Saved Queries to re-execute previous searches, and Saved Directions to view directions offline.

New Query

Simply enter a starting point ("A") and destination ("B") and hit the Get Directions button.

If the app is able to get directions for your search terms, it will bring you to the Trek Planner Results page where you can view a summary of available options.

Clicking the Reverse button with swap the values of "A" and "B"

You can enter addresses, landmarks, or search terms for either A or B, but you should provide as much information as possible for the best results.

Navigation Bar

While in this tab, the navigation bar will show a Help option to view this help page, or Done to dismiss the keyboard if it is showing.

Saved Queries

If you plan to use the same query multiple times (like going from "My Location" to your home address) you can save the query for later.

You save a query from the Trek Planner Results page after successfully generating directions from a new query.

If you have one or more saved queries, just click the one you're interested in to generate fresh directions for it.

Navigation Bar

While in this tab, the navigation bar will show an Edit button. Click this button to manage the list of Saved Queries.

Saved Directions

If you have previously saved a set of directions, they will appear in the Saved Directions List. This is useful for reviewing a set of instructions later when you may not have network and data connectivity.

You save a set of directions for later from the Directions page.

If you have one or more directions saved, just click one to review the full step-by-step instructions for those directions.

Navigation Bar

While in this tab, the navigation bar will show an Edit button. Click this button to manage the list of Saved Directions.
