Good fun. We used it in our bike movie and it worked well.

They've just added the ability to save your settings which is a great addition. We made our own icons for my bike and the kid's trailer, used a map we modified in Photoshop. It's a good effect. Nice work.

We ended up running credits over it at the end. Very slick.

It is a good idea but if it is call "The Road Trip Effect" there should be a car traveling from point to point, not an airplane.

I've never taken a road trip in an airplane! Haha.

Um, you can pick a car, or a plane or a boat or a train icon.

Like this little App very much and I guess I'll buy it. For the Future I'ld like to see the possibility to use different Icons for different parts of the route. If you're working on a combined car/ship route, it doesn't make much sense to have a car cruising the sea... ;o)

Control of the exported movie format (widescreen, HD) is the only thing preventing me from purchasing this software.

"The Road Trip Effect", not expensive, easy to use, and quite effective software. I looked for a way to make nicer and more interesting presentations of trips I organize for my customers and journalists to other countries. Using scans of maps with hand-drawn trip was not really an impressing way to do that when combined with nice films. For what I needed it for, this software is just fine. I look forward also to an upgrade that would add widescreen HD.

Major Problem: You cannot travel West across the Pacific ocean.

I guess if all of your travels are within the US and Europe, everything is okay.

But if you take that trip to Fiji or Tokyo - you have to go the long way.

The program comes with many maps (courtesy of NASA); one of which is a pacific ocean view. You should be able to use that view for the effect you desire. If not you can use any map you like in the program.
