The idea is great however the execution could be better. I am dissapointed that I cannot select specific dates for arrival and departure. The app forces you to select the number of days you are staying in a location rather than simply picking a date. There should also be a more easily digestable view of the route and timing.
What good is a trip planning app that can't calculate the route between waypoints??? Do I need to update?? Go button does nothing if you can find it...USELESS!!! Shame on you for wasting my time and shame on apple for putting this on the store. Go to Android or Windows where this sort of thing is status quo Joe!
nice mapping and easy navigation..Developer answered a couple of questions- Great service !
I'm using InRoute to optimize weekly delivery routes totalling 200 or more locations every week. For just a few dollars a month I get access to high power route optimization processing, of the same quality as found in complex fleet management software that can cost hundreds a month. I am very happy with the value, but I do wish the app had the capability of exporting in spreadsheet format. Small price to pay though for route optimization of many locations. Love it, and my door to door produce delivery business depends on it.
Best darn travel software you can use. Been using the iphone app for years and the desktop planner makes an app even better.
I'm not against subscription software. I actually think it's a very good model for both the user and developer when priced fairly. At $4/month or $30/year, this app is simply overpriced (unless you're a hardcore road tripper). inRoute has a very nice user interface and some great features. It is by far the best road trip planning app I've tried. That being said, for a casual user who plans a few road trips per year, inRoute is too expensive. It costs roughly the same as 1Password, an indispensable utility that I use every single day. I'd love to support inRoute. I'd gladly subscribe at a more reasonable pricepoint, but I simply don't plan enough road trips to justify the cost. On it's own, $4/month isn't much. But these days, we're expected to pay $4/month for this, that, and all these other apps. And it adds up fast.
I need to plan out a route across country and this tool does exactly that. The interface is a bit clunky (e.g. how do you clear a route and start a new one? What's the difference when searching between Map, Route, etc.?). You can search for hotels, search every X miles or hours for gas stations, etc. It's very functional. Wish there was a one-time fee I could pay but at least there's a free version with up to 5 waypoints, and the fee for premium planning is monthly so reasonable and I can start and stop it as needed.
This is the best way I've found to plan trips across the contry or just across town. WAY better than either Google or Apple maps apps. Only drawback is that it doesn't have a satelite overlay.
I plan motorcycle rides, benefits, trips as well as Jeep trips. InRoute has always been my go to app, and now that you can also use it on a computer as well as a phone or a tablet, it's even better. Unlile traditioal apps, you can control exactly where you want to go. You can easily set "avoidances" and build in "layover" times for fuel/food/bathroom stops. All of this, plus the other features give you a very accurate route plan. I also like the feature that lets you create folders. This let's you organize your various rides in folders. The cloud plan is well worth the yearly fee. Build routes on any device and they sync via the cloud to other devices. Sorry Android folks, it's Apple only but if you are a ride planner and try this, it may be enough to make you switch platforms. Yes, it's that good!
We have a Class A motorhome and use inRoute as a planning tool for pur trips. I can put in my driving parameters, how many miles or how long I want to drive, spped ect and come up with a good plan on some of my longer driving legs. My primary tool for navigating while driving is still the GPS in the unit as it has road restrictions, bridges etc preprogramed in. But inRoute is a great planning tool to get us started.
