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 - 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. 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 https://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.

Really Good but Not As Easy As Advertised

4
This app can do far more than I have yet discovered & it’s ability to share information with other travel planning apps is terrific. However, many functions, like changing the order of waypoints or adding waypoints in the middle of the route or several other functions are not intuitive or all that easy to use. Buy the tool - it does a lot. But be prepared to stumble & get frustrated along the way. The developer says they follow common iOS procedures, but that assumes the average user knows those procedures. The developer has responded to me telling me about several support tools & tutorials that can be accessed by users. While I appreciate the fact that there is help available, I just wish it’s were not so difficult to find. I oversee software development projects, so I am not a novice. Yet I hate having to play with something I pay for & hope I can figure it out or stumble over help functions. Hence the 4-star rating.

This is perfect for my RV traveling and planning. Not to mention that the author is responding quickly and regularly. Updates are thoughtful and well tested.

Does what I want it to do

I wanted a route planner for my car club. I wanted to create nice driving roads and put them in order of the best route. After finding RTP I built a nice route and opened the POI up in Google maps and was able to get guided directions. Great job. The fact that I can get estimated times of each route makes deciding so much better. I can decide if I want the 2 hour tour or the 3 hour tour. One drawback is that GoogleMaps will only allow me to make routes with 25 or less POIs. But after thinking about it I think that’s ok, meaning that all I need to do is create another route where the other left off at 25. This way I can divide routes up or start on a different route anytime. I know there’s a ton more that this app can do, I’ve only scratched the surface. Adding pictures or saving as a GPX file to open in a standalone GPS unit. (Not sure why unless my phone loses signal or whatever). But there looks like a lot more that this can do. I’ll eventually experiment and see. Someone mentioned the lack of ease when exporting from the iOS app to Mac app. Maybe the developer can add an option that when you save to iCloud that it auto saves it for all apps. But I really don’t want that.i want to know what version I’m loading or saving, I’ll just rename different versions. That’s all I got now

I used this app for my 13,000 mile trip across the USA. I loved it.
By Ipsaman

Too complicated

Bought this app to plan a big road trip. No real instructions given and I am not willing to keep trying things to see what they do. Others seem to have more patience than I. Also seems to be geared to those with RV’s. Should be simple.
