I have tried to go from Desktop to Pro and there are some differences regarding Network Analyst Routing.

I can't seem to figure out how to set hard route zones based on a polygon layer. This is easy in desktop since you can just load zone locations.

Any help would be appreciated.

The output is the route layer. And yes you can put that into a mobile map package.

Or on the VRP tool, you can check on the "Save Route Data" option. This will package the output route to a zip file on you disk drive. You can then use the Share As Route Layer tool to take this zip file and share as a route portal item. And that can then shared as well.

In ArcGIS Pro, the VRP solver is supported via the SolveVehicleRoutingProblem GP tool. It can take in a route zones polygon as input on that tool. See the doc (search for route_zones on the web page) for more info:

Thank you for the advice.

I can see that the VRP window in Desktop is not used in Pro.

The use of zones and depots in my analysis is only possibly with the GP tool.

What is the output ? Route lines feature class ?

I want to then share the ouput as a mobile map package.

Thank you for the advice.

I will certainly check the "Save Route Data" and share it to my Portal and then to Navigator.

I finally was able to solve and save the Route data as a .zip file.

I shared it to my Portal and wanted to know why I cannot see the Route Details such as minutes/miles and start stop time as seen in this web page example. Also, I don't see the Directions.

Why does the route table data show meters and not feet. I set it to feet in Pro.
