At Becon we understand that you may want to take a different route to the ones provided by the app so we have made it quick and easy to reroute if you want to go a different way.
If you deviate by more than the set distance (the default is 50m), then the ‘Off Route’ Safety Trigger will be activated, and a timed notification will pop up on your screen. When that happens, all you need to do to carry on your journey is tap ‘I am safe’, then ‘Reroute’, and Becon will automatically recalculate a new route from your current location.
You may want to travel without any route at all – when exploring a new city on foot, walking the dog, or cycling around the park for example. In that case you may wish to use Becon’s ‘Just Go’ mode. ‘Just Go’ is a premium feature available to Becon+ subscribers and activates all Safety Triggers to look out for you except for ‘Off Route’, so you can carry out your activity without the need to keep to a specific route or enter a destination.
