Desktop versus Mobile Basics

  • Updated

When you use a tablet or smartphone, you use your finger instead of a mouse. You use your finger to pan the map or select items on the screen. When you want to select something, you simply tap the item on the screen.

When you add a custom stop on a tablet or smartphone, you will need to use a long press. This means that you will hold your finger on the area on the screen where you will want to add a stop.  On a desktop or laptop computer, if you right click with your mouse (Control key + Click for Mac), you will be able to add a custom stop as well. You can also add custom stops and search for points of interest, cities or locations using the Search tool.
