“adding to both the safety of the ride and the pleasure of knowing beforehand what to expect” - Florin Tibu, “autoevolution”
“I used InRoute for planning six world record attempts. No weather app gives you more information, period.” - Carl Reese, Multiple World Record Holder

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I'm attempting to replace Google Maps for road trip planning and InRoute has done a good job in doing so. I've only tested the planning and not the actual navigation, yet. With that said, there are a few glitches I found with the Mac app:
1. It appears to be using Apple Maps but doesn't support an important Magic Mouse gesture offered Maps - holding Shift and scrolling to zoom. Adding this would save a lot of time from having to click to zoom in & out.
2. Randomly the app will cease to respond to inputs then suddenly do so, zooming uncontrollably. My Mac's specs are fairly high-end primarily used for photo editing so I don't think it's a resource issue with my Mac.
3. It will also inexplicably pan to a random are nearby where I'm working. This is further frustrated by the inability to easily zoom out and reorientate.
Key up with the good work.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback! One option besides the +/- buttons for zooming is you can Shift-click and drag (i.e. hold down the Shift key and mouse button, and then drag the mouse itself). This works in Apple Maps too. We'll look into whether we can support the shift-scroll gesture you mentioned as well.
We haven't had any reports about the map unexpectedly panning or missing key/click inputs, though. We have seen our Macs with Bluetooth mice and keyboards temporarily stop responding to input, then suddenly respond multiple times at once as though they're catching up with the missed input, similar to what you described. In those cases the mouse/keyboard was either low on charge, or the bluetooth signal was weak (Apple's support doc HT201542 helped identify USB drives that were causing interference). Maybe something similar is happening, but otherwise don't hesitate to contact us with the Help menu or at email@example.com and we're happy to look into it.
Cool App, Too Expensive
I'm not against subscription software. I actually think it's a very good model for both the user and developer when priced fairly. At $4/month or $30/year, this app is simply overpriced (unless you're a hardcore road tripper).
inRoute has a very nice user interface and some great features. It is by far the best road trip planning app I've tried. That being said, for a casual user who plans a few road trips per year, inRoute is too expensive. It costs roughly the same as 1Password, an indispensable utility that I use every single day.
I'd love to support inRoute. I'd gladly subscribe at a more reasonable pricepoint, but I simply don't plan enough road trips to justify the cost. On it's own, $4/month isn't much. But these days, we're expected to pay $4/month for this, that, and all these other apps. And it adds up fast.
A little clunky but does what I need
I need to plan out a route across country and this tool does exactly that. The interface is a bit clunky (e.g. how do you clear a route and start a new one? What's the difference when searching between Map, Route, etc.?). You can search for hotels, search every X miles or hours for gas stations, etc. It's very functional. Wish there was a one-time fee I could pay but at least there's a free version with up to 5 waypoints, and the fee for premium planning is monthly so reasonable and I can start and stop it as needed.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback. To clear a route and start a new one, select "Clear/New..." under the File menu (or there's a map icon for this that shows 3 pins and a minus symbol).
Regarding the difference between Map and Route searches, route searches are searches along/near the blue route line, while Map searches aren't limited to the route line. Map searches generally return results near the visible part of the map, and biased towards your current location if that's also visible, but will also return results worldwide when that's most appropriate (e.g. a specific address outside the visible map is entered, or you search for a landmark like the Eiffel Tower).
Hope this helps. Don't hesitate to contact us with the Help menu or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions!
