Killer app 5/5
By Stargazer Cord
Very helpful with planning family trip.
Not user friendly—input over and over again! 1/5
I’ve read the “instructions “ on this App and Website several times. It appears you are either born able to put in a route or not. Evidently I was born without this ability. No matter how many times I ask for the second or more destinations to add to the map NOTHING happens. I joined when this App first came up last year but have not been able to do anything with it. You can list places along your route but only to look at, not to build a comprehensive plan like we used to do with “Streets and Trips” before Microsoft discontinued it. I’m working on it again today and if after reading some more reviews and comments if I still don’t get anyplace I need to request a refund!!
This is terrific 5/5
Allows you to map out a trip, alter it and make the best route.
So far so good. 5/5
This is a very helpful app.
Hard to read 3/5
Uses a faint gray font for some waypoint info. Very difficult to read on ilhone 10r
Love this app 5/5
We used Road Trippers for our summer road trip. We were able to find cool places to visit, good places to eat. I used it to figure out where we needed to book our hotels to break up our trip. It is fantastic. I'm planning our next trip and it's the only app I need.
Love this app!! 5/5
Road trips are my favorite & this app just made it so much easier to plan!!! Great stuff!

Working so far trying to learn how to use the app
No EV options 2/5
Seems to be well formatted and run smoothly- however, it’s practically impossible for me as a Tesla owner to plan in my charging stops with any amount of convenience. Putting in charging stations stops for EVs would be a huge improvement! Right now gasoline and diesel are the only two fuel options.
Wish i could get my money back 1/5
App freezes alot. I have to be closing the app and reopening it. It worked great for the 1 week after that i was very disappointed. I wish i could get my money back. $30 is definitely not worth it.
This app rocks!
Best for planning 5/5
Loving all the locations that pop up on the route. I searched many sites and this is by far the best I found to plan a cross country vacation!
Partly Functional 2/5
By Inclement Nirvana
For an iDevice developer, you’ve totally missed the mark. What genius decided I could only use the app in portrait orientation? The whole point of iOS and all these devices I’ve spent a fortune on is the flexibility to work the way I choose. Planning a long East-West trip in portrait mode is inelegant and inefficient, and forcing only one orientation defies the entire point of the device.
Update: Got an email update after registering that they are reducing the functionality (fewer allowed waypoints) of the free version in order to make the subscription more appealing.
Combined with the lack of portrait orientation out of the gate, this tells me no one has really thought this through.
Excellent travel planning site 5/5
Excellent site to search everything you want on your trip. Very user friendly and great mapping features. Ability to share with travel mates is convenient.
This App Doesn’t have a very extensive community list 1/5
I won’t use this because it doesn’t even have the ability to recognize the town I live in. Bristol Virginia isn’t big but it’s not Tennessee thank goodness. The only option it gave me was in another state. Stupid!
Not helpful 3/5
I was hoping that this app would help me find places to stay, eat and explore along the route. It was not helpful
Great for planning 5/5
Are you planning a great trip? This app is great. It allows you to see how much it’s going to cost, by letting you put in your stops, estimating your gas mileage, and estimating your travel time.
I’ve been using Roadtrippers for a couple years. This app is fun for finding things to do and see while traveling. Love it.
Its very 5/5
By motorcycle maddness
I’ve been using this app since it became one, and the website version before that. It’s amazing for my motorcycle trips, giving a list of cool sights and budgeting tools. Love it!!!
Great App but............ 4/5
I really like this app and have used it to plan many trips, including my current 30 day trip. But my frustration is that you can only see it in portrait mode on mobile devices. Imagine my frustration in trying to revise trips on my iPad Pro or iPhone without being able to rotate the screen. Fix that an it’s definitely 5 stars.
This is hands down the best app for planning a road trip. It’s so convenient and has everything I need to plan an awesome trip! Highly recommend this!
BEST travel app ever! 5/5
By The Simple Daisy
I took our kids on a 50 day RV trip and planned our route ahead of time with this app. I even shared it with friends so I could get their input on sites to see. I’m now planning our northwest road trip. I tell everyone about this app. I create road trips just for fun. Once you discover the guides, you will be hooked. I upgraded to the pro version and LOVE it!
No place to enter home location 2/5
So good 5/5
Very helpful for travelers! A must have app
What a FUN app!! 5/5
This is just the app I have been looking for for many years! It tells you things to do around the way, places to stay, just about everything you need to know!
Change order of stops 3/5
By Turbodave Tx
I am having difficulty with this app not wanting to let me determine the order of stops and change destinations. Trip with 10 stops and can’t figure out how to change the order. Is there help or support somewhere???
Absolutely practical helpful road companion 5/5
By Lika SC
Still needs brushing from us, Roadtrippers, but it is great things with bright future. Lets build this together for next generation.
Optimize route? 3/5
There doesn’t seem to be an option to automatically arrange stops to optimize the route
Love the app 5/5
Love the app, continue to make it great
First trip 3/5
Need first run guide
Need to have vehicle type and or RV type to compute fuel cost.
Need to be able to add start date
Having a tie in to Accu- weather would be helpful
Needs a much better tutorial or help section. 3/5
I’m finding it very difficult to figure out how to use this app (what is a “Place”? Where do I find them? How do I save them?). So far, I’m figuring it out by trial and error and that’s annoying.
How to share 3/5
Trying to figure out how to share our road trip with family so they can track us. Like they do on Strava for bicycle trips. Not intuitive.
Don’t waste $30 on this app!!! 1/5
There are definitely lots of room for improvements, there is virtually no difference from the free version to the $30 version that i could tell other than some better maps, I found it hard to navigate around in,,
Great site 5/5
Would love if availability tomorrow hangs route or provide route options was provided for more versatility
Just use Google Maps online... 1/5
I am completely dumbfounded that this app has gotten such good reviews. Here are the reasons I am giving it one star: First, the app can’t even function in landscape orientation! I use an iPad Pro and I rarely use it in portrait orientation, especially when attached to a keyboard. This is the first app I’ve used that doesn’t do landscape mode and for a travel application that has iPad compatibility but doesn’t support landscape mode is confounding. Yes, I checked to see if my orientation lock was on and it wasn’t - I am typing this right now in landscape mode. Second, the user interface is much more complicated than it needs to be. Creating the initial start and end destination is simple but when adding waypoints and other routes - that’s when the user experience heck breaks loose. It is obviously due to their design to get you to purchase an insane subscription for the Pro version which leads me to the third reason. (Third), once you figure out how to add some waypoints (again, awkward) you are limited to a handful before it prompts you with some message about “long trips” are only available with a Pro subscription. The start and end destination I was working with is 2,000+ miles and it had no problem plotting that route but when I tried to add more than three waypoints it all the sudden decided that I was doing a long trip and thus need to pay ~30.00 per month to use their app for maybe one or two road trips per year. With the user experience issues and the upsell-oriented design they have, there is no way I would reward them with a monthly fee of 30.00. Think about it... That’s a Netflix subscription plus a HBO subscription equivalent that would get daily use. This app simply doesn’t pass the opportunity cost test and therefore gets 1 star. Can they change things to get a deserving 5 stars? Of course! This app has potential but they need to fix the user experience and come up with a different monetization model. I will check back in a year or so to see if they’ve turned a corner and give them another shot. I could see a 4.99 subscription fee but not more than that.
So Easy 5/5
I’ve been trying to figure out an easy way to plan my cross country motorcycle trip, as far as mapping, points of interest, finding places to camp, eat, etc. Nothing seemed to fit what I was looking for. After searching for a couple hours, I found this website. Learned they have an app. I am amazed at
how EASY it is to navigate. Adding in and removing points. The time between points. On the website, it shows nearby lodgings & food options. Haven’t figured out how to get that to show on the app yet, but it’s only day two. :) Thank you for making my trip planning so easy!!
Great app 5/5
Best ap for traveling 5/5
We have used this app on multiple vacation in the states and now abroad it’s wonderful and easy to use
One of the best apps i have used 5/5
Planned a great road trip so easy!!!!
Excellent way to plan a roadtrip! 5/5
Has everything you need!
Poor routing system 3/5
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.
Crashed twice during setup
Search feature? 4/5
Wish guided tours had a search feature
Not what I want at all 2/5
Just want an app that allows me to to set up an itinerary I can use as a guide on a driving trip. This is not that.
Road trippers 1/5
So hard to use. Frustrating!!!!
Best App For Travel Junkies!!! 5/5
I love this app! Thank you!!
PA to San Francisco 5/5
This is the best road trip map out there. Love it!
Great mapping! 5/5
I’m doing a road trip in Italy on a bus with at least 30 people and wanted to make sense out of the itinerary. This app does wonders. The only thing I wish is that you had more guides associated with the cities in Italy. Otherwise it’s a wonderful app!
