Please note that RouteBuddy is, primarily, route planning software. Navigation with RouteBuddy should not be solely relied upon and we strongly advise that you read guidance in the RouteBuddy EULA
Some devices enable you to navigate using a real-time satellite signal from the device to the computer.
Connect your GPS receiver to the computer (Bluetooth or USB) and when a satellite signal is picked up by the device you should see the device position on the map. Please note that not all devices can act as receivers when connected to RouteBuddy
You use Navigate to give you turn by turn directions along a route you have previously set up using the Route tool. You can also navigate from your current position to a pre-defined waypoint.
