Driving Directions


Paragon has the ability to display, print, and email driving directions. Directions can be obtained
to drive to a single property or to drive to several properties, routing them in any order you choose.
Driving directions can originate from any location, with turn-by-turn directions provided in text or
map format.

Note: This Quick Start Guide assumes the user has run a search and selected the properties for
which to get the driving directions and that the user has knowledge of the map c controls;
zoom in, zoom out; and panning the map to the north, south, east, and west.
