I Built A Tool That Gives You The Best Order Of Stops To Help You Finish Your Route Faster And Not Double Back?

My friends drive flex and I’ve heard the routing system that is provided sucks. Half the time it makes you double back on a route when you don’t need to, and the flex app doesn’t consider your last stop when optimizing meaning u could finish your route 20 miles from your home. I’m also very surprised Google Maps does not have a route optimization feature.

I made a chrome extension that takes my multi-stop route on Google Maps and rearranges it to give the fastest, most efficient route. It basically tells me what stops I should go to in what order to ensure that I’m spending the least amount of time and gas on the road.

I posted about this tool here before and asked if I should make this into a mobile app on both iOS and Android so it can replace the current Amazon system. There was significant interest so I’m currently working on building it out and I want your thoughts! You can join the waitlist here: App Waitlist:)

Some feature plans from your feedback so far:

  • optimizing for the last stop too (home)
  • more accurate order
  • auto importing addresses from the flex app
  • information on gas cost of trip and pumps along your route

Let me know if I’m missing anything or what you would like to see!
