How does it work?

You can lock both the time of arrival and the time of departure whenever you want, so that this time is fixed and will not change even if the schedule before or after it has changed.
Fixing the time is especially important in two situations.
1. The first is when we have to get to a certain place at a set time – a performance for example, and we do not want to be late.

What does the Open / Close lock icon mean? How does it work?

What does the lock icon mean?
How does it work?

When the lock icon is orange and the lock is locked, it means that the time is locked on the timeline.
Any change made to the schedule, before or after a locked hour will not change it or affect it.
You can lock both the time of arrival and the time of departure whenever you want, so that this time is fixed and will not change even if the schedule before or after it has changed.
Fixing the time is especially important in two situations.
1. The first is when we have to get to a certain place at a set time - a performance for example, and we do not want to be late.
2. When you plan to leave the campground at 08:00 in the morning for example. If 08:00 is locked, and we reschedule the previous day, the time of departure from the campground will not change.

What do I need to know?
Pay attention, across all our pre planned itineraries, they are always set up with a lock time for them in the morning. Otherwise, if you reschedule your itinerary, you might get a cumulative delay or mistakes.
Please remember that a trip timeline is set as a long string, place by place, hour by hour.
Some road trippers are preferring long drives, sometimes even until late in the night, others are preferring a more relaxing schedule.
You can consider the night time as a buffering time for the previous day. Therefore, It is very important to keep the lock locked when you don't want to be late.
Note: that the time change is at a 15-minute interval

What do I need to do?
If you want to amend a locked time, unlock it first, set a new time, and relock it.
