Out of date information 1/5
Looked at local restaurants in our area and some have been closed for more than 5 years. Won’t use this app when traveling that’s for sure!
Wish you would help Roadtrippers with dogs 4/5
Tell of dog parks ,hotels, trails and other pet friendly spots that are on the routes. So many families are travelling with their dogs now. All size of dogs are loads into their cars. Add great trips with your dog....there is a large demographic which would love this.
Use to be full featured 3/5
Change of ownership and now what was free is a charge for platform. They should have stayed with the ad-based revenue model.
Can’t get help with big bug 1/5
I have the plus version and have a problem with the iOS version. It keeps on routing me through Memphis, a waypoint I have removed. I also cannot add another waypoint after 146 waypoints even though plus should allow for that. The ‘already subscribed’ doesn’t help either. I can also not sign up for zendesk. So that’s three problems...
Where is help? 3/5
Some nice features, but some things not intuitive, and can’t figure out... Where is help? Shouldn’t there be some basic help in App? For example, how do you “save a place”?
No longer FREE 1/5
Ridiculous to charge 30.00 a year! It was fun using this app and having unlimited waypoints but someone got greedy!
An Avid Road Tripper’s Essential Tool 5/5
Road tripping since atlases and car naps were a thing. Over 140K in road trip miles on the current vehicle. This app is a dream. Save your maps offline; add notes (we used GPS coordinates, links to articles/guides, directions to campsites and hotels, confirmation #s for each stop’s lodging and activity reservations); have easy access to customized timelines, gas pricing by MPG, total miles & hours. An essential resource.
What did you do to this app? 2/5
You either need to add a few more stops in the free version, or come up with a much lower priced single month plan. You took a tool that was useful and restricted it so far that it’s not really worth the bother. With this short an itinerary, you’re not much different than Trip Advisor, or at least not enough to justify the cost of the paid version.
Worst experience 1/5
By Enthusiastic User1
Not only that the offline option for which I paid for does not include many regions, it only has a map without showing places. Even worse - I tired to use the navigation feature and it sent me to a random location 20 minutes north of where the place actually was. Ruined my day.
I am planning a 48 state trip and this app helped me tremendously!!
Awesome App and guide 4/5
I used this app to plot out our Road Trip in July 2019. It was an amazing help. I will be traveling next week... so can’t speak for the gps or navigation... but I have high expectations. Awesome App and guide... so far.
Was a great app 1/5
I started planning my annual vacation only to realize you get only 7 free way points, 2 of which are already utilized. On top of that the app took forever to load items I searched for. I might pay a smaller fee for a great working app, but not this mess. How disappointing. Go back to what you had previously...don’t try and fix what’s not broken.
Great app, now they hose you. 1/5
Used to be free, now you have to pay to add stops to your trip. It was a wonderfully functional planning app, but they made a money grab and it hurt them.
Not as useful as I hoped 2/5
I had more luck finding places when I just did a search using google near my location.
Missing hotels and ev charging stations 3/5
Why not using google search on hotels? Many are missing and reviews would be more accurate. I find myself going back and forth with TripAdvisor, google maps, yelp and local newspapers... electric cars charging stations is a must now.
Must have for road trips 4/5
This app is wonderful for planning trips and even just dreaming about trips. One thing I wish it would do is allow you to include attachments in the notes, at least for the pro version which has a fee.
Good while it lasted 1/5
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.
Cannot avoid highways 2/5
I love the concept of the app but it will not let me choose a route that avoid highways. If I want to travel on a 300 mile trip while avoiding highways and see multiple things along the way, this app simply does not work. Also, it needs a robust FAQ place that will help new users. It has quite a long time learning curve.
Great concept but not so good in execution. I will not be re-ordering my pro level after this expires.
Pretty cool! 5/5
By Bank Sinatra
I love this app. If I’m driving more than an hour I’ll usually plug the trip into the app and see what’s along the route.
It shows all kinds of stuff that you’d never know was 2 minutes off the highway. I always check the app to find the best local restaurants on road trips!
Dangerous roads 2/5
Was having a great time using the app. Found it easy to follow my location and know where to go.
Until it took us on a small country road...it started out paved, then became unpaved. It became so narrow, we were unable to turn around.
It took us on a literal TRAIL. Meaning we had to cross streams with rocks and traverse mud and slippery gravel. I was terrified for my life.
We had no choice but to keep going and hope the car didn’t break down or slide off the hill.
Why would this road even be an option go on?????
There should be something to denote paved and unpaved roads.
There are so many possibly options to prevent this from happening to unsuspecting travelers.
I’m still shaken. We made it through after 20 minutes of terrifying driving, but I don’t want to think how close we could have been to a disaster.
Free version too limited 2/5
Just when you think you’ve found a cool app, boom...time to pay up! Move on
for real? 2/5
seems like a really useful app, except free version is pretty gimped, $30 a year for IAP, and that means i can't share with spouse for planning family trips. i'm not gonna spend $30-$60 a year.. or the annoyance of managing monthly $6 IAP for occasional trips. FFS devs, get a clue.
Excellent app for wanderlust 5/5
Excellent app for wanderlust
No longer free.... 1/5
This app was a decent app when it was free but even if you pay for it (my husband did on his phone) it still doesn’t work perfectly! Half of my destinations wouldn’t come up, it wouldn’t load correctly, or it wouldn’t have the correct mileage between destinations! Definitely a joke to charge $30 for something that doesn’t even work half of the time! It was fine when it was free but to pay is a rip off! I definitely recommend Toll Guru instead! It’s free and it also tells you toll pricing! You can also add as many destinations as you need FOR FREE and way BETTER QUALITY! Download Toll Guru and uninstall this app!
Difficult to figure out 1/5
I’ve been unable to figure out how to add stops. I typed in a destination 22 hours away, and I’m NOT driving there and back. I see no way to add the many stops we plan. I gave it up, deleted it, and then after reading good reviews, I googled for information “How to add stops in the roadtripper app”. The infor was unclear, and again I was unable to figure it out. I have two other trip planning apps and they are very simple to use. It’s not like I’m new to this. Deleting, I don’t want to waste more time.
Don’t use for side attractions. 1/5
I was so excited about how this app would show me things to do along a trip. Unfortunately, the locations were not correct in the route to the point that it actually showed 2 waterfalls in the wrong order. We had to backtrack a second time as well in another event. I suspect the addresses they have are wrong or they were sloppy in determining the gps positions. Until this is correct, I will look for the locations I find on this app on my own mapping software instead of using the app to go to my mapping software.
It’s a great app until they make you pay $30 to add more than a few stops to your trip.
Cannot add a trip 1/5
By the real puffy
Why is it so counterintuitive to just add a new trip?
Limited search and wrong location 1/5
The first thing I tried to add to my roadtrip through Washington and Oregon was the Mt St Helens Visitor Center. I had trouble finding it because you have to exactly word the search as “Mount St Helens.” Any other spelling (like “Mt St Helens” or “Mt Saint Helens”) does not find it. Then when I finally found it, it was in the wrong location on the map!! Roadtrippers shows it being next to Interstate 5, when in reality (according to Google Maps and Bing Maps) it is about 5.5 miles off Interstate 5 in the Seaquest State Park next to Silver Lake.
Used to be free. Now they charge $30 1/5
It costs $30 to use what used to be a free app. I don’t mind paying for an app, but $30? Total ripoff
Not user friendly 1/5
I should be able to type in the name of a city and have all of the choices show up of what I am looking for but that does not happen. It is difficult to navigate the website
Great app! Thanks
Must have! 5/5
If you love road trips, you have to have this app. It will show you anything and everything you could imagine to stop and see right along your route, as well as show you pre-made roadtrips if you need some new ideas. Have used this since I was 15 and I’m 22. LOVE IT.
Love this app! 5/5
We’re in the car now on our fourth road trip planned using Roadtrippers. I’ve found a lot of great activities at our destination using this app; hang gliding, hiking opportunities...
This app works the way we like to travel. I save all the things we might want to do along the way as favorites. Then on the road we look ahead and decide what we have time to do, and what we’ll have to save for another time.
Turns out, one of our favorites is the “offbeat attractions.” Maybe a day includes 6 hours of driving, but 2 hours down the road is the “World’s Largest Pencil.” That breaks up the drive with a quick stop to stretch our legs, fun photo op, then on to the next destination.
Thanks for a great app!
Worth it 5/5
Love this app!! Its subscription is pretty expensive at $30 a year but well worth it if you do any sightseeing or travel.
This app USED to be great 1/5
The changes over the last year or so have RUINED this app. Used to be a great way to record & share your trip. Used to be easy to use. Now it is very difficult & $30 is a RIDICULOUS amount of money for an app, especially when all the good parts are gone. Sooooo sad
Better than Google 5/5
Gives you real-Tim navigation, a ton of places to check out (most of which are local and unknown), and is super easy to use! Love this app and use it all the time for both long road trips and short get-arounds!
Very disappointed 1/5
I used to use this app all the time but now I can’t add but 5 waypoints. I guess I’ll have to find another way to plan trips. I’ll never pay $30 a year!
I was working on a road trip from Cincinnati to Flagstaff and was trying to find some interesting stops along the way. Started browsing the Internet and came across this app called Roadtrippers. I must say this app is amazing. There is a light version but I decided to upgrade to the plus because you can add more stops to it. The app is very user-friendly and you can alter the route very easily. Highly recommended if you’re taking a trip and want to be able to find some interesting places along the way. Mike Shout, Ohio
RV Must 5/5
Awesome addition for RV trip planning. Easy to use. “Points of Interest” along travel route provides lots of opportunities to visit unique places without deviating from planned destination.
This app is useless thx to max 7 stops 1/5
I used to like this app, but now that the free version it limits you to only 7 stops, I’ll be deleting it.
Loved it until waypoint count was severely limited 3/5
I used Roadtrippers for my 3 week trip in Andalusia and loved it. In the middle of planning my trip through Turkey using the app, I see that I’m now limited to only 7 waypoints now. I’m not paying $30 a year for this service.
Love it 5/5
This app is amazing if you’re traveling across the country on world! It is chalk full of things to do and places to see. I am still in the planning stage for my cross country trip but this app will definitely help me to “stop and smell the flowers”.
Not easy to set up 1/5
Very hard to set up my trip. It doesn’t put destinations in the order given and won’t let me change it on the app. I have better luck on my computer but can’t use that while driving to these destinations.
Great and useful app 5/5
Okay people, listen up. I used this app on a trip from California to NewYork City. I used it to plan the trip, and to explore interesting sites along the way. It was probably the best app I have ever used. Now, it took a little time to figure it all out, so practice a bit before you start. I did, and thought it was ok, but as I began to become more familiar with it, it became indispensable. Trust me. I paid nothing, but even though I have no plans to use it for a while, I am upgrading (yes, paying for it) to support the app designers. (I have never done that before).
Babycakes Ventura 5/5
By Babycakes Ventura
Have used RT for cross-country trips. Nothing like it! Use it every time.
I have used Roadtrippers for years. It’s awesome.
Pricing structure is all wrong!!! 2/5
By Test prepped
You say you give 7 free waypoints, but you really only give 5 a start and end aren’t way points. Many people only go on one big trip every couple of years, you’re essentially charging $30 for one trip. NO ONE should pay $30 for one trip. Also, not impressed my your other bells and whistles.
