Departure alerts let you know what time you will need to leave to reach your destination at a desired time.
Let's say you want to arrive at work at 9AM each weekday. Creating a departure alert will calculate how much traffic is on your route and let you know when to leave so as to arrive at work at 9AM. Let's create one:
From the menu, tap DEPARTURE ALERTS. Select the destination you would like to create a route for by tapping on it. We want this to notify us when to leave for work on weekdays so tap WEEKDAYS. Then we set the arrival time for 9:00AM and tap SAVE. Tap NEXT in the upper right and you will be prompted to put in your departure location.
NOTE: Using your Current Location in this step will only save info for where your phone is at that moment and it will not follow you around. This is a current limitation of the app.
Once you have selected a deperture location please tap SAVE.
You can now turn the Departure Alert on/off under DEPARTURE ALERTS on the app's menu.
