    The voice navigation feature can help you reach specific destinations on your itinerary or any point of interest you select on the map. The feature is available on the mobile version of TripTik and compatible with Apple and Android devices. Enabling the feature will automatically open the default navigation app on your mobile device (Google Maps for Android or Apple Maps for iPhone).
    1. In this example we will use an iPhone. Open the Safari app and navigate to (If you see a page that says "Find Your Local AAA Club", enter your home ZIP code and tap "Go".)
    2. On the TripTik landing page, enter your starting and ending locations. If you’re interested in finding points of interest along the way like hotels, restaurants, gas stations, campgrounds or AAA savings, tap their icons before selecting "GET DIRECTIONS".
    3. In the trip pop-up menu, tap "Navigate".
    4. Select any destination within that list to open your device’s default navigation app and utilize the voice navigation feature for turn-by-turn directions.

    You can add stops to your route in one of two ways:
    Option 1: When creating a route, add additional stops by selecting the "+" icon.
    Option 2: For longer trips, add additional stops at certain distances and time intervals using the "Route Intervals" feature. Note: This feature will only appear for routes longer than 4 hours.
    1. After generating the route, adjust the amount of time or distance between stops by dragging the Route Intervals slider from left to right. You can select “Time” for intervals of 2 to 12 hours, or “Distance” for intervals of 100 to 600 miles.
    2. Once you’ve selected the desired interval, choose "Set" to see the potential areas you can stop. These intervals will show up on the map as red circles along the route. (To remove the circles, select "Clear".)
    3. Select one of the circles to zoom in to that area. The circle covers a 2-mile radius, with gas stations, restaurants and hotels spotted on the map.
