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.

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.
Do I really have to purchase this app for my Mac as well as purchase it for my phone?
It used to be much better. Now it keeps adding random extra pins whenever I am using the app. I’ll be placing one pin and it creates another or I’ll be moving the map and it just creates another.
I have planned several trips with various stops along the way. Using this information I can calculate what my fuel and lodging expenses will be.
App opens up and you are facing a map with symbols below. Symbols appear to mean plan, map out etc. but do not respond. No tutorial or directions easily accesible and I just paid 5 bucks for something I am likely to delete. Bummer.
Impossible to navigate to campgrounds unless you also buy additional apps.
I paid for the premium app but it isn’t showing up on my phone. How do I get the icon??
My family took a road trip from Minnesota to Oregon last summer. We were able to plan every amazing stop, estimate how long it would take and were able to enjoy much more than if we hadn’t planned (Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, etc!) Robust options are available. The desired location can be “pinned” and then edited to change the name, the pin image (e.g. forest, food, scenery) among other things. You can add images, activities, costs etc. Adding pictures was a great way to get the kids excited! The route can be adjusted, however, not always to the way you would like to go, although rare (same with every other map app). The directions were great. It estimates your time to the location (which is adjustable by driving speed!) and then allows you to input the length of time at that location. This feature was great as we adjusted our trip because of bad calculations on my part! There are also “POI” which are places you might want to check out, but don’t want it calculated into your itinerary. This helped me narrow down what we could actually do, and keep ideas in my back pocket if we found the time. The only gripe I have is that it isn’t the most intuitive layout. There is a learning curve, but once you get it, it’s amazing. Worth every penny.
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.
Almost impossible to use, doesn’t display RV Parks on route. Very frustrating!
