inRoute Route Planner Reviews


FIRST IMPRESSION  Anstzya  5 star

I have been searching for an easier, more intuitive way to plan waypoint mapping for motorcycling. I tried this app x 1 and thought it was incredibly easy to use and export .gpx files.

River chosen

Best trip planning App yet  River chosen  5 star

I've been looking for a Trip Planning App like this for a while. Best since MS Maps and Trips. Just needs more work on Points of interest. Best trip planning app that I’ve seen on the App Store.


Great App  F1remsh!  4 star

Great mapping program. Use it other to route trips. Gives you the ability to add stops along the way and choose routes.


Perfect for planning and navigating your personal route to a destination  Vmax1299  5 star

The perfect navigation app for planning your route. I use it on my motorcycle for choosing the roads I want to ride. I have found none better.

Foxy 454

Using inRoute  Foxy 454  5 star

I’ve been using inRoute for over a year now. I keep learning more about its capability’s each time. I like the way I can plot my own route instead of always heading down the toll road or interstate at 70 mph in bumper to bumper traffic. It really nice to slow down and see something along the way. One option it doesn’t have is to be able to avoid interstates or toll roads or even big cities with out having to plot the entire rout your self. It might take longer but it’s amazing what you might see along the way.


Pretty solid  TLL Jr  3 star

User for ~3 yrs. It’s reliable, with one exception. Often, when there is a street behind the location, which is not the street in the address, it will map you to the rear of the address instead of taking to the street the address is actually on. Frustrating, but not a dealbreaker for me.

InRoute Rocks  bizz tek  5 star

I’ve used this program for quite a while now and have to say it is my go to for motorcycle routing. I’ve got a garmin on my motorcycle as well, but find route planning, especially on the fly, to be much easier with inRoute. Planning routes on my iPad and then using them to navigate with my iPhone while on the bike is ideal. The progress this app has made from the start is great, but there is room for improvement. I would like to see the controls onscreen bigger and more prominent while navigating a route. On the smaller screen of an iPhone it is sometimes difficult to see the information at a glance. An easier way to zoom out the route while riding would also be appreciated. Update to Review: Thanks for the reply on how to zoom in and out. I did not know that, but have now tried it and it works great! 5th star added 👍


I love this app - Best route planner  Gacgiv  5 star

Eviction guy

Awesome app  Eviction guy  5 star

I use this app everyday and saves me a bunch of time


Very helpful  GscottLockwood  4 star

I have been using it for a couple years to plan our various RV trips. I like that I can store several versions in the cloud and it will help me figure when I will arrive. The elevation and curviness features are also helpful


Horrible  Farfar2013  1 star

Once u want to start driving it is over they wanna charge u money ...just use google maps.

Great Sweet Daddy

Great App  Great Sweet Daddy  5 star

Useful for my motorcycle trips!!


Great trip planner and routing  Wizardsr  5 star

In town I use it to route many stops then use Waze to give voice directions. Works every time. Easy to use and reroute stops. I use it to plan trips. Very helpful in determining travel time between locations.

The Shavian One

I wish it worked for cyclists  The Shavian One  4 star

This app is remarkable because of its ability to import AND export GPX files in iOS. As a cyclist, I use these to import them to my head unit, which is a gps unit (I use the wahoo ELEMNT bolt) that can then provide turn by turn directions, which is great for 30 + mile rides in unfamiliar territory. The unit also records power, speed, heart rate, pedal cadence and so on. So this app seemed like the perfect companion for that--because google has great cycling directions, but no waypoints and therefore no GPX export. Unfortunately, the app was thrown by my attempts to use a bike path that stretches for miles through a state park--and routed me out and back around the park to the other side via roadways. Such a bummer, because it is such a great app. Maybe the developer could add a feature to force connect two waypoints? Or add more off road info? I do appreciate the free trial--and would gladly pay for it if it was more cyclist friendly.


My Go-To Navigation App  Ski4ahigh  5 star

I have used many GPS units and navigation apps and this has been the best by far. Great routing and ability to customize the route by dropping pins is a big plus. Viewing the curviness and elevation of the route is great when planning a motorcycle ride. My GPS units have let me down and gotten lost, but InRoute has never failed to get me where I needed to go!


Distracting, frustrating, cumbersome and ineffective  J&CK79  1 star

I liked that I could place multiple pins and alternate route plans, but when I went to navigate it became utterly useless. It simple does not work.


Great!  Westy2203  5 star

Great for guiding me through a day's work as a swimming pool cleaner!


Excellent App For Navigation, Route Planning  jg20120309  5 star

I've used a number of navigation apps from the App Store, and I've found this app to be the easiest to use, and the most convenient, especially for planning routes with multiple waypoints, and saving a library of routes for quick access later. Navigation is very clear - bold directions step-by-step at the top of the screen, clear verbal directions, and the accuracy has been fine. Searching for addresses for waypoints and destinations, and building the route from them is quick and easy as well. I've used the app for a long trip into the Appalachian Mountains, and it was very satisfactory. I would highly recommend it!
