- I realized that when I'm traveling on long distances I may lose my focus for a second or two. Many of my friends said that it's OK, you just can't be at 100% attention all the time. Anyway, I found it somehow dangerous and started to look for a tool or app. I tried Vision App and it went pretty well. It alerts you about lane changes, sharp stops, tailgating and driving too close to other objects. So it has become one of my travel apps.
- Best app for planning each and every route and stop for your road trip - Google Trips. I highly recommend it.Google Trips is amazing - I used it to plan our stops on a road trip my friends and I took to the Isle of Skye recently and I can't recommend it enough.
- When I'm on a road trip, I want to make the most of the time at hand and explore as many places I can with the limited time I have at hand. In situations like these, if you get lost on your way, it would take a lot of time for you to get back on track. Google maps help me avoid that problem and find directions to my pre-planned destinations on the go! Totally LOVE the app. Graphics are cool and are easy to comprehend. Completely amazing. No cons whatsoever!
- Foursquare City Guide is a unique application that will allow you to visit an ideal place in any country. With this app in your pocket, you will always get useful advice and recommendations from the global community! The program allows joining a large team whose members love to explore and look for new places. They leave short reviews. On their basis, you can create a list of cafes and restaurants, where you want to eat lunch while traveling.
Overall this is the best tool I've found for keeping track of your final travel plans. Any booking emails you get, just forward them to Tripit and it's processed and added to the plan almost instantly. You can also set up alternate emails if you have different addresses or multiple planners. iCal integration is really nice.
Can be frustrating in a few ways: no calendar view for planning before you book, you can't attach a PDF receipt to your plans, the UI is old and awkward (but the mobile app is a bit better). However overall it does the basics better than anyone else so it's what I use every time.
- This is the best road trip management tool that I've ever seen. You can add destination points on the map and it automatically calculates the trip. There are tons of settings, like daily driving time, rest times, areas for notes, etc. It has integrated hotel and restaurant search, which clear marking if it's booked. Have a look, you'll find many more useful features there.
