Not 100% intuitive, but once you get the hang of it...
It took me a while poking around all the icons and symbols on the app to actually create my first trip, but once I got the hang of it, I found it was exactly what I hoped for. I wanted a mapping program which clearly showed distances and drive times. It is easy to edit ( and once I read other reviews, I found how to move stops to other positions in the lineup - it just takes a firm press. Then shift it to the proper place). The tool where you can find local attractions, restaurants, hotels and campgrounds is WONDERFUL ! Again, that was tricky to figure out, (go to the map view, zoom in to the stop you are researching, then tap in the search bar on the top of the screen. A window will pop up where you can choose which category of attraction you are searching for. “X” what you want, go back to the map and you’ll be able to scroll thru the choices close to your stop. We haven’t taken our trip yet so I haven’t tried the navigation feature, but I figure I have several other online options on that tool once we hit the road. So far so good! Thank you Roadtrippers!
Subscription Required Now?!
I’ve used this app a handful of times when going on long road trips.. maybe two to three times a year. When it was free, it was awesome. I just logged in to plan a trip for my in-laws when they visit CA and drive up the coast.. but sadly found that the app now requires, not just a one-time payment, but a monthly or yearly subscription?! I get that developers need to make money, but this is a bit ridiculous. There is no reason to pay a yearly subscription if I’m only going to use it once or twice. Nor does it make sense to sign up for a month.. then remember to cancel.. then sign up again when I want to use it again.. then cancel. What a hassle. It also prevents me from helping friends and family plan out trips when they visit, because most would be hard pressed to buy an app let alone subscribe to one. I fully understand this is my opinion, and there are others that obviously love the app and (luckily) travel enough to find the new required cost negligible. While I enjoyed the app during trip planning (mind you, I still used google maps or Waze with addresses from Roadtrippers entered in), it’s not enough for me to subscribe when I can use google maps and a little bit of research to build my own map for free and have high quality and accurate navigation.
Love the roadtrippers app
I’m planning a 9 day cross country trip from Washington state to Florida. I was trying at first to plan our trip on my own using different maps online trying to calculate how long it would take from place to place and then looking up each state to see what cool things we could see. With the hopes we wouldn’t miss anything. After waisting a lot of time and paper I came across this web sight. Which made my trip planing a breeze even figuring out where we would stay along the way. The trip I at one time was dreading I now can’t wait to take. After using the free version on roadtrippers, and finding just how useful it was I did decide to up grade to plus. I am so glad I did all the features are well worth it. Roadtrippers works great on both a computer and through an app on your phone. Also the Nav setting works with whatever system you regularly use. I use Waze and it’s attached. I just can’t say enough good things. If you have a trip coming up this is the app to use.
Good while it lasted
I’ve been using Roadtrippers for years and learned today that if I want continue using this app I’ll have to subscribe?? Like really. This must have happened within the past two months because I just used it in March or April to plan a long road trip with no restrictions. I used to love this app to find waypoints and points of interest on my cross country road trips, just to see what’s along the way or if there were interesting places close to the route. I liked the gas and distance feature. All good items for someone who loves to plan and map out logistics. I’m an intense trip planner, and use this app as a starting point to do further research on google and TripAdvisor. I’ve come to really love this app. And upon opening today any future trip I try to plan I can only have 5 waypoints. They say 7 but the starting and ending point of your trip each count. So in reality you only have “5” free waypoints. I usually have 10+. For a price of $30 a year this app isn’t worth it for the infrequency of the trips I take or even if I would be a more frequent traveler. And with everyone else wanting a subscription, I’ll just delete this because there are services like Google, and TripAdvisor I’ll just use now in the future. I loved having all of them, I’d pay $1-$3 a month to keep, but now your just a waste of space in my phone.
Poor routing system
I try to use Roadtrippers to plan motorcycle rides and I don’t always want to use the shortest most efficient route after all it’s about the ride. There is no way to select what route you want to take other than plot through towns and most small towns the program does not recognize. It is extremely frustrating when you are trying to plan a route that a group is going to ride that covers hundreds even thousands of miles. The share feature is nice as it makes it easy to distribute the map, but when it doesn’t follow the proper route people get lost because they follow the line and not the written notes. I would be happy to improve my rating if the would allow me to drop pins or pick the route that I want to use between cities. Or even give me the ability to do both so I can drop pins for rally points on the map. These are just a couple of features that would make this software much better and more user friendly. Also expand the map search feature so that it picks everything up that’s on the map there are many small towns that you search for and it has no clue where they are, but it will pick up a town in another country by the same name.
Nothing else compares to this app!!!
Roadtrippers was a necessity in planning our family’s road trip to Wyoming. We had planned to take our time and stop at many roadside attractions, points of interest and fun diners. I researched so many apps to create a road trip itinerary, and only this app will actually allow you to discover, schedule and plot your stops along a given route, as well as tell you how long it will take to get from each stop to the next. We planned to go from MN to WY, and we were able to create an itinerary along the way, with stops in MN, SD, MT and WY. After having no other luck in finding another app where we could create a scheduled itinerary, I gladly paid the upgrade and it was soooo worth the money. Can’t wait for our next road trip! Cannot recommend this app enough!
No longer free, not worth $30
As someone who can’t really afford frequent travel, I was very excited to have the opportunity to plan a long road trip I could actually go on this summer. I was prepared to break the trip up into two legs on the app as I was aware of the 60 waypoint limit, but commencing my travel plans today I’ve discovered I have been limited to 5 waypoints per trip (starting and ending each count as one stop in your new 7 waypoint limit). If I want more I will need to pay the $30 annual subscription fee. I understand that the app needs to make money, but $30 just to use the app for one trip is simply too much for me to reason. I used to love this app, used to even recommend it to people. While some of the waypoints have the wrong address or have been closed or simply aren’t listed etc it was still super easy to use the map just to figure out what kind of stops were along the way to your destination of choice. It’s always been glitchy, but it was a fun way to collect information (definitely never used it on an actual route, though, as gps was very off). Very disappointed that greed has taken over the company. I guess I’ll be heading over to google maps from now on.
Excellent app for planning and exploring with a loose itinerary
This is the third time I have used it to go on a long Road-trips. Each time it has gotten better. I love it but it could use some improvements. I would like to search a theme to put the trip together. Civil War, revolutionary war trip I found myself looking on different websites for more information. Lots of times the things I was looking for were not on the app. I would also like to have the app track where I have been based on my photo’s location. The navigation part only lets the map stay in portrait. So I used another app to navigate. I did like how the app allowed me to get to the places I wanted to go and I really liked how it gave correct information for the places I was going when I found them. I would give it 9 out of 10 it has help me plan despite what it doesn’t have. Also there is nothing like it that is better! Thank you Roadtrippers!!
COAST 2 COAST (Part 1of2)
I’m very excited I came across the app, I will be putting it to test after this upcoming week when my fiancé and I move from Melbourne, FL to Orange County, CA. I haven’t even left yet and this app has done some pretty amazing things for me. The main reason I added the app was to help with locating gas stations. Our first stop from Melbourne, FL will be in Houston, TX where my family resides, then from Houston off we’ll go to Tucson, AZ then Orange County, CA. While pin pointing some gas stations for our trip I was able to come across a really good hotel deal that I couldn’t say no to In my college hometown of Tucson, AZ (BearDown). I think this is a really great opportunity to test out this app on our coast to coast journey and see what all it has to offer, It’s starting off pretty solid so far. When I get to my final destination it will only be right to give an honest 2nd part review of our journey and how good or bad this app worked out.
Didn’t meet my expectations
I recently use the road trippers app for a road trip on my motorcycle with a buddy of mine. Apparently it only brings up restaurants and hotels that pay to be on this app. We were in a town with restaurants and diners all around us and nothing was coming up on the app. If a road was closed and we had to reroute it put us on some roads that weren’t the best for motorcycles. There was periods for a mile or more to in Ohio where it couldn’t route us in the proper direction. It showed our location but no route to follow. Other areas it’s Ennis down roads that have been closed for years and we had to turn around and head back into a different direction and then wouldn’t reroute us. I’m feeling like the $30 for the app wasn’t well spent. The directions and the GPS worked pretty well for the most part but it seems I’ve could’ve gotten the same from Google Maps without spending a dime.
Good while it lasted
This app is begin gimped so they can push an $80 (now $29) a year pay service for it which is absolutely ridiculous. It serves some purpose still, but it's no longer my go to. I use trip advisor, atlas obscura, and TripCase. Not sure what they were thinking trying to charge a huge annual fee when most apps charge a low one time fee to unlock features. The upgrades are not worth the asking price, believe me. 60 more waypoints and a darker map option as it stands. Otherwise, locations missing and no way to add them. No way to 'easily' route a road like you might do on a, you know, road trip.... Route 66 or blue Ridge Parkway for example. They also do not respond to emails if you have feed back or issues. I used to love this app and might have paid a one time fee to support them, but $80 is laughable and annually! Hah! What seemed ok when it was free (or would have been with a reasonable charge) comes under more serious scrutiny and doesn't hold up. Thanks for dropping waypoints to 30! Done with this app.
Well worth it
I used this app while traveling from New York to New Mexico and back. It gave me great destinations and provided some useful information about some places I had planned on going. One of those places I found a review telling me that this wasn’t a safe neighborhood, as a single female that was a valuable information I have. I found some great places to visit as well as follow up that were goldmines! Even when I decided to change around my trip a little bit, it was easy to just press and drag a Destination to a different spot on my list. Even have websites for many of the places was valuable to be able to look up times, that was the only problem that I found, were the times on the app or different than males on the websites. Love this app and will be using it again
Awesome Road Trip App
I've been using this app for the past couple months planning out a Chicago to Yellowstone road trip. It is very easy to use and very functional. I've found campsites all along the route to stay at and also have marked all of the stops we're going to make at national landmarks and interesting spots, from the biggest buffalo statue to the largest prairie dog colony in the US. I really like the Note feature, it allows me to make detailed entries for each stop along the way. A great app and it's free!! I wrote the above review last year but never submitted it. Since then I've used Roadtrippers to plan trips to Rocky Mountain NP, Pictured Rocks NL, and Banff NP, Great Smokey NP just to name a few. I won't be taking any future road trips without this app.
Not paying up for what was free once
Was going to use this for my upcoming Portugal trip to help collaborate plans with a friend, but as it turns out, since the last time I used this app, many features have been extremely limited. I can only do less than half what I used to be able to do free. On my last trip- I had about 27 waypoints... and now you can only have 7? That’s really lame- that’s no ‘road trip’. Needless to say, I will be retiring this app- it’s not even a necessity anyways, just a used-to-be-helpful tool. I’ll use google maps and a list, thanks. And I’ve looked at other reviews and everyone else agrees that $30 for the simple luxury of tracking your stop points is completely rediculous. To the developers who are responding to those reviews and trying to list the ‘benefits’ of paying- all of that is useless. The only great thing about this app was keeping track of stop points and collaborating with friends. Now that both of those things are nonexistent. This app is garbage. Totally not worth anything. Used to love it, now I wonder what it’s even still here for? 🤷🏽♀️ I’ll be using the littler apps whose heads haven’t gotten too big for their users (and whose asking price isn’t completely rediculous and not worth what they think they’re worth). How is that response true? Taking functions away and making it more expensive is somehow helping it be more useful? Lol, no.
Great concept but not ready for prime time
I love the idea of the program and there are some great sources that can be tapped into. However, it is difficult to use and lacks the functionality that most programs have. The GPS isn't very precise so when you zoom in, it looks like your off in the wilderness; when in map mode it crashes frequently, both the website and app navigation is poor. When I started trip, there was a place to document the trip. I've spent hours on both app and website and can't find that page again. The website was difficult to use but app is worse. App and site are too static. App won't rotate so you have to always look at it in portrait mode. Also does show trip details and map like on website. On site, you can't scroll through trip details. Map zoom feature also doesn't work well. If they hire a new programmer and fix these issues and it would be a great app.
