That is absolutely fine. You shouldn’t feel restricted at all by the route shown within the app, so we have made it quick and easy to reroute if you want to walk a different way.
As you know, if you deviate by more than 50 meters 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 walk without any route at all – when exploring a new city on foot, walking the dog, or strolls around the park for example. In that case you may wish to use Becon’s ‘Just Walk’ mode. ‘Just Walk’ activates all Safety Triggers except for ‘Off Route’, so you can walk with Becon protecting your journey but without the need to keep to a specific route or enter a destination.
