  • Wonderful App but....

    By KB3POA
    I love this app. My husband loves that you can pick a curvy route for when he is on his motorcycle. My only but is I want an RV (recreational vehicle) option. We spend a lot of time traveling with our RV and to be able to put the night of our rig in a trip planner and have it route avoiding low bridges and roads RV are band on would be great.
  • Excellent!

    By Taylorncbelews
    I was having a terrible time trying to find a mapping app that would allow me to request routes avoiding highways and this was exactly what I wanted! Very pleased!
  • Love it and it drives me crazy!

    By hominid
    This app is so awesome once you figure it out. Clutzy & confusing interface, but super powerful when you get past it. Haven’t used it for maybe a year, but when I needed it this week, omg, it was even more confusing! Yo folks who build this, great job with the underside, but the UI is a hot mess. So for buyers out there - it does everything it says it does. Would never do a road trip without it. Excellent functionality. But .... the user experience is often baffling, menus and hidden options can drive you to agony trying to repeat something you had done a few moments earlier. Deserves 10 out of 5 stars ⭐️. Only mark it down because of the frequent aggravation. Once you’re a pro @ it, everyone else seems like an idiot ....
  • A Few Suggestions

    By Zeppo57
    I love the app, it’s amazing! But could you add a speed limit indicator on screen? Also, could you add a way for me to put in my car’s current mileage and then show what it will be at the end of my trip? Thank you!
  • Imports GPX files

    By wulfzburg
    Only app that I found that can import GPX files.
  • InRoute

    By gpberg
    Can’t add multiple routes. Layover timing only in 5 minute increments. Otherwise a great app. Stores route info on device so you don’t get lost when out of cell data range. Editable waypoint names. Saves your map in a bookmark folder
  • An above par iOS Navigation App

    By Rambler358
    I've tried just about every iOS navigation app available, and this is by far the best IMO. Note this app is only as accurate as Apple Maps, but Apple Maps has come a long way and is now just about on par to Google Maps for accuracy. The developer is very responsive to questions, and fast in doing so. There are 2 things I'd like to see for this app: 1.) a CarPlay version - I have not seen any built-in vehicle navigation program that will allow you to create a complex route with multiple waypoints. A CarPlay version of in route would be the bees knees! 2.) a Mac OS version - There are times when I prefer to plan a route on my computer with the larger screen. Currently I use Garmin BaseCamp for this on my Mac. An inRoute version for Mac OS would have me uninstalling BaseCamp in a heartbeat! I'm hoping the developer will or is working on the 2 additional inRoute versions I mention above - this would keep me as a paid user for the foreseeable future. Please keep up the great work!
  • Enables YOU to force the route YOU want to drive

    By MidwestUSA Indy
    I have used the Pro version now for three years. Like everything, it takes some getting used to in order to learn how to use it efficiently. I use it to drop pins along a particular route of my choosing as opposed to using other apps which automatically generate routes for you based on travel time or whatever considerations those other apps use. Once the route is planned by you, the app will give you audio directions (as well as a visual map). So, you can enjoy your drive while getting verbal directions to keep you on the route you planned and wanted to take in order to see whatever you want to see or drive whatever roads you chose. I find it is helpful to drop pins directly onto the map side of the road which you are planning to drive along as if you are “running over“ those pins along the route as you drive the route. I have also learned it can be helpful to place “extra“ pins around road intersections if you want to be sure you take an exact route because this takes away the app’s ability to choose particular routes/turns between any 2 pins you have dropped. The app works fine with iTunes playing and Waze running simultaneously. Happy motoring!
  • Awesome, needs a few tweaks!

    By jpstez
    Once you get the hang of how the routing works, you can build custom, turn by turn routes. Five stars if it were CarPlay Compatable!!
  • Can’t use app on multiple iOS devices

    By Ravio hat
    Warning to potential buyers: iCloud shared purchases DO NOT work for in-app purchases, like the premium version of this app. That means in order to use it on other devices, you have to pay for it ($15 btw) for EACH device individually. This is a rigged set up designed to screw you out of your Apple family plan.
