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! 4/5
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 5/5
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?
Imports GPX files 5/5
Only app that I found that can import GPX files.
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 5/5
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 5/5
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.
Awesome, needs a few tweaks! 4/5
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 1/5
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.
App is too difficult to learn to use 1/5
App is too difficult to learn to use, and the draw feature malfunctioned, refusing to disengage. Once that happened, the app was useless. Could not manipulate waypoints, pins or any other functions. Plus the help menu was totally inadequate and virtually useless.
BEWARE... Horrible App, No response from the developer 1/5
This app did not do what the premium version stated. I bought the premium service with a 7 day trial. On day 3 they charged me, even though I asked them to cancel before doing so. Working with Apple support to take care of this issue. BEWARE!
Awesome app!!!! 5/5
By God's letter to us!
I’m an oversized truck driver and this is great for permit routes. Only thing I would ask them to add is exit numbers to help with permits.
Plow driver 5/5
By JCR Property Services
I am a private plow driver and I run between 80 and 100 properties every year. I could not keep the route organized if it was not for this app.
Had to create account and signed up for free trial and selected to cancel after free trial. Been charging me for months, I have called to cancel and nothing! Definitely going to report this app!
No exit numbers on maps 1/5
This app would be great if it showed bridge height and exit numbers .... other than that it’s not any better than google maps
Great app 5/5
Love the app. So much fun trip planning as we full
By Love 2 B N London
Can’t access ANY functions unless you pay an outrageous user fee.
Just about perfect 5/5
By PaMotorcycle Tours
This App is perfect for motorcycle touring enthusiasts who want to easily plan routes, ride them and share them. It would be 100% perfect if you could build routes on a desktop using InRoute.
Almost perfect. 3/5
I'm a pilot car driver, and I love that it let's me pinpoint custom routes, but the one flaw that makes it a pain is there isn't exit numbers.
So I end up going back and forth from this app to Google maps.
If there is anyway to add in the exit numbers on this app, it would make things so much easier. 😓
Yes! Exactly what I was looking for. 5/5
I have tried a two different routing apps in the past and I have to say this one has all of the features I was looking for. I was looking for an app with the ability to move onto the next stop without any user interaction and this does just that. Working for a large parcel company, this app really comes in handy and maximizes efficiency on the road. It lets you know the distance to your next stop, and distance to your ending stop-which is really great for planning your day. The price you pay for the features you get is minimal!
Love it 5/5
Very good app
My favorite route planning app 5/5
By Kathryn Moran
I love this this app very much. Please include option to download maps when no cellular data is available.
Free download only 1/5
Then you need to pay to use it
Great app 4/5
Great app for planning your day, still has some bugs creating multiple pins when you use Contacts as waypoints.
Good app, but I would appreciate some UI enhancements 4/5
By Nobody you know 87
The app is the best of its kind that I’ve found, allowing you to overlay your route along with weather and wind predictions. But the UI is a little complicated. I have a couple of UI requests:
1. When you draw the route, it would be really helpful if each segment between waypoints was color coded and showed the estimated travel time for that leg. Yes, I found that info by clicking the list button and scrolling down through all the nav instructions, but it would be much less tedious to evaluate different route options if the segment travel time was visible right on the map.
2. The layover UI is somewhat confusing and difficult to use. I would greatly prefer to simply enter a departure date and time for each stop over. That way, when I have extra days in the schedule, I could easily adjust departure dates without affecting later, non-flexible dates. This would let me readily evaluate the weather impact of staying 2 days at stop B rather than staying two days at stop C, while still leaving stop D at the originally planned time
Great app, great concept!
Hard to use 1/5
This app is very hard to get to do any routing.
I tried to get a short route and the app kept wanting to change over to Apple Map.
I gave it one star because there wasn’t a 0 star rating.
When you the address in it goes in the order you put them in not what’s closest to you had me go out the way then back where I was closest to
Best trip planning app. I have spent $60 testing others. 5/5
By Dave & Demi
Best route planning app ever. Every new release blows me away with features.
I'm a road captain for a motorcycle group. I plan multi stop trips all the time. We like to take back roads. I used to use streets and trips before it was discontinued.
I'd been looking for something for my iPhone. tried every navigation app. Spent over $60 on them.
This is simple and easy to use
In minutes I create routes for group rides. These are not straightforward. They are confusing back road routes.
The fact that they list gas stations places of interest and restaurants is tremendous help in planning our rides.
Support responded to a question I had in less than five minutes.
The gps feature is responsive and accurate.
The more I use this the better it gets
Looks useful but a subscription for a map app is pushing it 2/5
I am more than happy to pay for apps and support the developers. However, a monthly subscription (that’s half as much as my streaming service) is a little ridiculous. I would love to pay a one time fee though. From what I can tell without buying anything, the app looks very professionally developed.
Best Trip Planner 5/5
We use this App everyday we are on the road with our RV. Love it. !!!
I don’t think it is helpful 1/5
The app should remove locations or move them up as you leave the destination. Also you should leave space for a picture of the location
Great app 4/5
A+ for support. Minor bug with speech. But route planning is very useful for motorcycle rides.
Would be 5 4/5
I love this app I wish it had a settings to avoid tolls. And do you guys offer this app on different platforms
Porque no se pueden agregar más de 100 rutas? 4/5
Porque no agregan poder organizar mínimos 200 rutas a la vez, ya que el límite es 100..
Great App 5/5
By The Flight Crew
All I can say is “You’ll Love This App”. I was about to spend money on a GARMIN 595LM and this app runs circles around the GARMIN! Now 5 of my friends are now using it as well.
InRoute the most practical tool 5/5
I work for the Feds and require up to 50 destinations and 3 routes per month. I LOVE this app because it’s cheap and has all the things I need to set up my clients. Notes, instant access to all the details of a visit, options for waypoints or just to keep it on the map outside of a route. It has proven to be accurate for its optimization and who knew it would show Lat and Long...something I’m required to confirm! Thanks for a tool that makes my job immensely easier.
Love it! 5/5
By BJ FROM ID
I am somewhat limited on my computer use, so I like simple apps that do not require a lot of time to learn but do what I need them to do. This is the easiest app for road trips or walking routes that I have found. User friendly. Thank you.
The very best I have found for motorcycle routing 5/5
This app is the best I have found routing to a specific address. The ability to enter an address and have it drop a pin on the route is priceless. Makes planning so much easier.
Planning a bucket list trip to Sturgis 2019 for a small group, some camping and some in hotels. This app and google are the only tools I have needed, besides the phone to call, to get accommodations for both groups Following the route on the map I have found hotels along the way, googled those hotels, entered address for those in the search bar of the app and it has dropped a pin on that address. Same procedure for camp grounds, searching for campgrounds around hotels on google, entering that address and dropping a pin. Also from google you can get the phone number to make reservations. Information on tags for all pins can be changed to say anything you wish.
Needs work 3/5
The maps get me often close and sometimes lost, would be better if they used google maps data. This program has left me at road closures and bridges that were out.
Useless for circular routes 1/5
This app will not let you manually place pins; instead you input addresses to set destinations. This makes it useless for my purpose of setting a circular scenic route (i.e. starting from and finishing at your home without stopping at any particular address.)
Would be great if I could flat-out purchase. 2/5
By matt the hobbit
I played with this app for the 7 day trial.
It has features I would love to use.
But the subscription pricing is more than the amount I would use the app.
Would shell out a flat $60 for lifetime access.
Subscription for daily use does not suit me, and that’s unfortunate because it seems like I would occasionally use a navigation app with these features.
4 stars for features but 2 stars for price structure
Had no idea it was set to auto renew, it just billed me 29.99 and I can’t get my money back. Don’t want the App! Would give 0 stars if possible!
FedEx driver 4/5
I love this app as I can map out my deliveries for the day and even if I lose signal, I still have my route. Only thing is, I can’t reorder on the fly. That would make it a 5-Star app.
If u do deliveries on apple, THIS IS YOUR APP 5/5
I know a lot of folks evaluate this app for road trips and site seeing etc. But I've tried ALL the route planning apps for apple FROM A DELIVERY PERSON PERSPECTIVE, this one is UNMATCHED.
--Entering a daily list of stops is soooo EASY. It THINKS about where you are and suggests addresses within your region first rather than someplace in Timbuktu hours and hours away. 90% of time I enter an address halfway and it's already suggested it due to this VERY SMART algorithm.
--The routes it plans are optimized to use MAJOR streets and are VERY intelligent. A mortal flaw of other apps is they drag you through neighborhoods with tons of stop signs and lots of useless turns. All cities are set up with certain mjaor roads and streets with few stops and this app uses those to your advantage every time.
--This app keeps it's maps quite current, I've only once had the app try and drive me thru a ball field rather than around it.
--this turn by turn verbal instructions are accurate and I've no need To use Google maps or other rather than the built in turn by turn. On extra plus is how LARGE the turn by turn verbal instructions are accompanied by visual instructions on the screen, if your using an iPad, it's SO JUCH easier to glance over and read what's going on while also hearing it. Google maps could learn a thing or two from this app by making the turn instructions larger. We ARE DRIVING after all, trying to read small print and drive safe don't mix.
--you can get a good rough estimate of time needed for a route by putting in time spent at each stop and it adds that into drive time to give you a more accurate start and end time for the route.
--it so easy to call up old routes, add an extra stop, it automatically reoptimizes the route. Saving and opening old routes couldn't be easier and it will automatically store them in the cloud if you want.
--you can easily rearrange the order of stops by just dragging them into a new order and the map reoptimizes.
--the built in help system will guide u through most any further questions.
Well that's enuf about the app. The last bit of news is if you read these reviews is the app is the app is ACTIVELY supported by the developer. A scourge we all know TOO WELL is an app written and then the developer ignores ANY requests for help and vanishes into cyberspace. Not so here....your questions will be answered in a timely manner by the developer. Plenty of reviews back this claim up.
If you deliver routes daily, simply put YOU NEED LOOK NO FURTHER, this is the app you should be using on Apple products.
Limitedly Useful for the Cost 3/5
For fifteen bucks I found this App to be disappointing. It’s planning capabilities are very limited. I considered this App to be a bait and switch to sign up for their plus five dollar a month subscription.
This map tracking software is so easy to use and efficient. It will save many times more in time and gas than the cost. Highly recommend.
Pretty amazing 5/5
I purchased the enhanced version several months ago to plan a trip around New England. I initially downloaded and purchased the app on my iPad Pro and couldn’t figure out how to sync to my iPhone. I contacted the web developer via email through the website listed below and within about 10 minutes I received the info I needed. Now that’s customer service AND a quality app. Well worth the purchase. Easy for even me to create trips and save them. Thanks!
Fantastic for involved trip planning 5/5
This application is what you need if you have a complicated trip and want to compute travel times, layover at stops, etc. While Waze chokes on a complicated lengthy trip this app doesn't even blink. Well worth the money!
This app first of all It’s wack and too expensive
