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, OpenStreet Maps or various other 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. Developers, if you'd like to learn how to send location data from your app to this app, contact us.

    If you are old like me and learned computers from ancient times and had to memorize keyboard combinations to make anything logical happen on the screen then you will likely be able to muddle your way through this app to find a frustrating line drawn across the map to more than one place. But hopefully you are also bald like me because you will try to pull out your hair in frustration while doing so. For example: We want the map page to show miles. App deleloper tells us to go to callouts, change settings, and presto he says we will see mileage. But of course we don't. You can only see the mileage to or from a touched poi. The app developer has obviously never used Microsoft Streets and Trips (by far still the best mapping program ever made!) because if he had he would combine the functionality of the magnifying glass and the disappearing/morphing plus button into one search bar that never leaves the top of the screen. My father was the kind of guy who was always right and never listened to constructive feedback so I am an expert at cutting my losses and moving on. It was worth $6 to me just to write this review. Lots of reviewers have expressed frustration with the user interface of this app. They are all correct. It is needlessly complicated. The app developer obviously has the coding skills to make working apps, but he needs to learn the business skills to listen to his customers and make the user interface as easy as Streets and Trips. If a 5th grader can't sit down with an ipad and plan a route w/o help, the app needs continuous improvement.

    Updated! June 8th 2018. I still love using the Application RTP, however being ignorant about GPX files cost me money. I’m using RTP for a 4,000 + mile trip. WORKS GREAT! But, I don’t want to use my phone for routing me around the country. (RTP exports GPX files)+(TomTom imports GPX Files) = (Not from RTP.) Or (to RTP from my new TomTom.) Why? Incompatible GPX files! OH CREATOR, Can you cause this to happen. Or suggest something. Moral of the story , don’t do what I did! thinking your hours of work building a trip can be easily dropped into a TomTom GO That would be beautiful if it could! Planning my trips with this application, I’m able to set the pace how fast I go. For instance, I’m a 1.2x slower traveler with the stops I make. Knowing this fact will make your trip more like a trip instead of a race to get somewhere. I also know how far it is in miles and time from point to point, very helpful when planning your cross country trip. I drive 11 hours a day, so I drag my pin along the route until it say 11 hrs. Companion apps work in concert, switching back and forth you can send a POI from a another App to RTP. loving this!

    Although the app says it does a lot it is tedious and not user friendly. Major issue-does not indicate roads that cannot be used by RV’s. No RVs on NY PARKWAYS-yet every route included them. Frustrating and useless if you are unfamiliar with your route
  • Can’t believe I actually paid money for this

    Had high hopes. I Keep trying to enter a poi in marathon Texas, the address that comes up for the poi is correct, but the map pin shows up in Wisconsin. Another pin @ Gage Hotel shows up in the northeast USA. Garbage.

    This app is way to difficult for my simple mind. I want to put in where I am going and where I’m leaving from and then add waypoints along the way. I spent 2 hours trying and failing. I look for another
  • Good app, but has some very annoying flaws

    Was originally going to give 4 stars because I only could think of 1 flaw. A decent amount of times the trip I was working on would just disappear. I’d be plotting points of where I’d be going on the map and then it’d just go blank. All I had to do was re load the trip, but it still is annoying. What earned the app 1 star less was that you can’t edit the order of the plots easily. Say you’re planning a road trip and want to make a slight adjustment in the middle. As far as I know you have to completely start over. There is no way to manually change the order of stops with out starting from scratch. Also If you have at least 1 stop that requires a plane, it completely renders some features useless. I’d like the option to account for flights in the app. With these complaints I feel like this is a decent app with some flaws that make it a pain to use sometimes. Take these flaws into your consideration and weigh them with your uses for the app before deciding to purchase.
  • Love the app but...

    I have been using the heck out of this app but it frustrates me to no end! I use it in conjunction with several other apps to plot our course (we’re new full-timers), but each time I come back to RTP I have to reload the trip. This is a fine app that could be GREAT with a bit more work - please do that work developers.
