In Settings of the action bar the user can configure the start action, which is shown at start of the app. The start action can be the Route Request or the Circular Search of charging stations. The start action may be shown or executed immendiately applying the last used search criteria.
The route is shown on the map as a red line with route markes at start, intermediate destinations and final destination. Charging stations are presented as cluster or single station markers dependent on the zoom level.
