Road Trip Planner helps you plan your next road trip, or use it to display your past road trips. Drop pins worldwide anywhere on the map by shift-clicking onto the map, or by entering an address (type the address, or obtain it from your Contacts). Once the pin drops onto the map, its address is retrieved. When two or more pins are on the map, routes between the pins can be displayed. The routes can be driving or walking, and they show the distance, travel time, fuel cost if driving, and any advisories. Perfect for anyone planning a road trip, or wants to maintain a record of past road trips.

A demo from the MAS would be fine. And 4 map pins would be fine also.

There is a demo in the works. It's been submitted to Apple and I hope it'll be available by mid-July. Thanks.

No trial period? Forget it!

What the developer states above is true. However I have to ask; is anything preventing the developer from posting a demo on his/her website?

Modesitt Software (Developer)

Well, yes. As I said in my first post, if I create a demo and you download it, it will crash. That's because you did not download it from the MAS. Those are Apple's rules. The app only works if it's downloaded from the MAS. If it's downloaded from elsewhere, it will crash. How Apple does that I'm not sure. But I have heard it's to limit access to their servers for the map tiles. I think Apple pays Tom Tom a fee for using their maps, and Apple wants to have total control over how the maps are used. That's all I know and it's all speculation.

On the other hand, I could create a free trial version available from the MAS. The trial version would have a limitation of something like allowing a max of 4 map pins. Apple has strict rules about demo apps, so it could not have a time limit or similar limitations. Would that be of interest?


As I am not a professional developer I do not know what is going on 'behind the scenes'. However, based on your email it sound like you are using Apple maps. Perhaps other map providers, such a Google do not impose this limitation. I mainly posed the question out of curiosity. I my case I have a Garmin 3597 GPS, a terrific instrument, that directly interfaces to their mapping software, Basecamp. As such I have little real interest in your product at the current time because the combination of the Garmin tools works quite well for me. As a side comment, unless something has changed I highly recommend portable navigation devices over the ones built into automobiles as you are stuck with the same hardware as long as you own the vehicle and map updates are very expensive (so I hear) and can be somewhat cumbersome to install.

Yes, Road Trip Planner uses Apple Maps. Google doesn't have an API available for Mac developers. They do for iOS, but not for Mac.
Road Trip Planner can export GPX data for your Garmin device.
Thanks for your interest.


If you could put out a trial version - or a demo downloadable from your site which could NOT be activated - I'd love to try it.

I can really use something like your program, but I'm not spending $15 on something I can't road-test, first.
