Balance route times: Enable this item to find routes with similar times for the drivers assigned to your plan.
Balance route distances: Enable this itme to find routes with similar distances for the drivers assigned to your plan.
Traffic (for Monkey and Gorilla licenses). Allows you to define a speed coefficient to simulate traffic.
