Road Trip Planner™ for PC Description

Place pins on a worldwide map for each location you want to visit, then see your route. Enter trip details for each location and create a complete trip itinerary. Multiple sample files are available, including an informative Route 66 sample file. You can demo this app by downloading our free RTP Viewer app. RPT Viewer is virtually identical to this app except with RTP Viewer you can’t save your edits. MAP PINS HOLD WHAT YOU NEED. Each pin shows: - arrival date & time - departure date & time - travel time to this location - time spent at this location - name of pin (such as John’s house) - address of pin - notes and images - custom pin color and icon - URL for related information - URL for related images - weather reports - transport type (driving or walking) - Internet Search results - list of activities (lodging, sights to see, etc.) - choose between multiple routes (if available) - view driving distance between pins, driving time, fuel cost, travel advisories, turn-by-turn driving directions - Export pin data to your calendar. EACH PIN CAN HAVE MANY ACTIVITIES. For each activity you can record: - name of activity - activity date, time and duration - cost - phone - FAX - address - URL - email address - confirmation number - notes - picture There are two types of pins. Route Pins are used to create the route. POI Pins mark points of interest on the map. Choose between Apple Maps or OpenStreet Maps. Cache non-Apple maps to disk for offline use. See the settings and Help for more info. For air and rail routes a straight line can be displayed between pins. Add, remove or rearrange the pins in any order you wish. Routes and pins can be sent to Apple Maps. Import and export GPX data files. Each trip can be saved as a separate document. Perfect for anyone who wants to maintain a record of past trips. VIEW YOUR TRIP ON YOUR MAC with our Road Trip Planner app available from the Mac App Store. Send location data to Road Trip Planner directly from any of our location-savvy apps. THE ITINERARY HOLDS ALL OF THE DETAILS. Share it and take it with you. - print the itinerary or share it easily - includes a map image with pins and routes, activities for each Route Pin, costs for each activity, total fuel cost, total trip cost, information for Points of Interest Pins, and driving instructions. USE THE TO-DO CHECKLIST. Make sure you don’t forget anything. Development is very active and we have many more features planned. We respond quickly to suggestions and questions in our forum. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION OR AN ISSUE. We promise we'll respond as quickly as we can. For more info visit the Road Trip Planner web site at http://roadtripplanner.modesittsoftware.com PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PURCHASING: The mapping and routing functionality Road Trip Planner uses is based upon Apple’s maps technology. If Apple Maps cannot find a route between map pins, then neither can Road Trip Planner. Please test the area you wish to travel using Apple’s Maps app to ensure that the area can be routed. If it cannot be routed, please submit the issue to Apple. If Apple Maps cannot perform routing in the area you wish to travel then neither can Road Trip Planner.

  • Not user friendly

    I find this app extremely frustrating to use. Whenever I tried to add a new route pin it moved my previous route pin to the new location instead of adding a route pin. This app is not instinctive at all. Hate it.

    An old friend and I started a Holiday road trip tradition this past year that honestly changed our lives. A major factor in its success we realized was the seamless nature in which we were able to use technology to help guide us toward the things we wanted to see, yet leave the ability jump around based on how we felt at any given moment. This app was a key factor in allowing us to check off the must sees, move around the stuff we realized we didn’t have time for, and keep moving forward without any feeling of being stuck or wondering what to do next. This app will be the third wheel in all of our road trips (for which we have 3 files already in the works) to come! A very special thanks to the creators for making such a relevant platform for people who like to wing it with at least some idea of what to see along the way. This app still gives you the feeling of rolling out that paper map and pointing at spots of interest, then just does all of the hard annoying work of discovering the route. My only suggestion would be to include a real time Navi section at which point we’d never have to switch between this and waze, and if possible nudge us to check the gas tank after that feeling of relief to finally see the light of dawn after pulling out of an 8 hour overnight winter rainstorm through the hills of West Virginia, thank god for AAA. Oh, and make it compatible with the new IPad keyboard.

    Trying to go from National park to National park and most of the time it says there is no route available. Feels like I wasted my $
  • Not what I was looking for

    So you can’t add a starting point to your planner. You can’t edit an existing points address. You can’t adjust the sequence of waypoints, you have to delete and start again. It’s easy to mistakenly move a route pin, and you can’t retype the correct address or undo what you've done. I’ve wasted my money with is app.
  • Shabby app

    Extremely difficult to use! Appears to be written for programmers not users.

    I cannot locate any of the landmarks and sites I am looking for. Very frustrating.
  • Not useful for RV route planning!

    The app is no more useful to an RV traveler than iOS “Maps” because it can’t screen the route to avoid roads that are unsuitable for an RV, such as a 7’0” underpass on a NJ expressway or a single lane mountain pass in CO. There are GPS maps that screen the route given the dimensions of your rig but this isn’t one of them.
  • Bad program

    We used this app for a cross-country road trip and it was super helpful. We were able to pick our destination for the next day and then divide that leg into reasonable stops. The only issue we ran into, and this may be a google maps issue, many of the historical or random attraction stops either didn’t exist or were not accurate. We ended up in someone’s driveway more than once thinking it would be a historical site.
