The Route preferences options enable you to choose whether you’d like the quickest or shortest route generated as well as how much you would prefer or not prefer to use the highway in your route.
The Route Summary options allow you to change the appearance of your driving directions. To easily view the driving directions with the least amount of scrolling necessary, you can choose to have them displayed on the full screen. If, however, you’d like to view the map and the driving directions together, choose to view 1/3 of the screen.
The Locations, or GRF, file contains saved information about geocoded addresses, calculated routes, and driving directions. The GRF file is dynamically maintained—the content of the file is automatically updated whenever you add or remove a stop, pushpin, barrier, or change their properties, or calculate a route.
You can send this file to a colleague with whom you want to share information. You can also load a GRF file for use in StreetMap. The GRF file provides a convenient method for receiving and sending stops and routes for use in ArcPad.
For more information about the Locations file, see Overview of the Geocoding and Routing File.
If your map is becoming too cluttered with details that are unimportant to you, you can make layers invisible on the Layers page. Uncheck the check boxes for the layers that you don’t wish to see (for example, railroads, landmark boundaries, and counties).
