Road trip planner and manager.

Overview

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.

Road Trip Planner Features
  • Add an unlimited number of pins to the map.
  • Save each road trip as a separate document.
  • Add notes (including images), arrival and departure date and time, URLs, and more for each pin.
  • Rearrange the pins so they're ordered the way you want.
  • View weather and web cams for each pin location.
  • Free iOS app called RTP Viewer allows you view your RTP files on your iOS device.
  • Search for places or amenities (gas, hotels, food) for each pin location.
  • Send a route or the pins to Apple Maps.
  • Export waypoint and route data as GPX data.
  • Routes show fuel costs when driving.
  • Customize routes by dropping more pins.
  • Receive location data from some of our other map related apps (see web site below for specifics).

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

Downloaded tonight on my MacBook Pro and spent several hours entering data for a 28 pin trip, almost 5000 miles, when the program "quit unexpectedly" and I lost my entire trip! What a waste of time and effort. I want a refund!

Sorry to hear RTP crashed. I always suggest that for any Mac app, RTP included, you should save your files often. Otherwise you risk losing data. As for the crash itself, I suggest that you restart the Mac as that has always fixed the issue in the past. If not contact us at and we can help. It's difficult always searching for questions in reviews, so contacting Modesitt Software is the best way to go. Thanks.

Can a route be exported, and imported into a GPS?

UPDATE: After RTFM'ing, found this on developer's site (awesome!): "PUT YOUR TRIP IN YOUR GPS device. Route pins and routes can be exported as GPX files that can be imported by many Global Positioning System devices."

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

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?

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.
