Planning a route from A to B

With a route planner, you have a good tool to find all the facilities and businesses that are located near you. These handy apps often show you at a glance what the current situation is not only where you are, but also on the road and at your destination. Are you looking for a special restaurant in your neighbourhood? Then the route planner will show you exactly how to drive there and how to park nearby easily.

Which route planner is the best and/or most user-friendly?

The main task of all route planners is the same, namely to clearly show the quickest and safest routes. If you have not used such an app yet, it is advisable to try out some of them first so you know what functions they have to offer.

Where some route planners only show you routes for cars, there are others that can show you routes for bikes and public transport. There are even route planners that show you how to get somewhere on foot. And not in a dangerous way along the road, but through footpaths and walkways.

Do you need up-to-date traffic information, for example because you have a busy schedule and do not like to be late? Then check which route planner can show you the latest information on traffic jams and delays the quickest.

Other possibilities of a route planner

Besides showing you how to get from point A to point B safely and quickly, route planners can often add new destinations to existing routes and show you what facilities and shops can be found along your route and destination.

This function is particularly useful when you are travelling in a city with which you are not familiar. You don’t have to search frantically while you are on the road, the planner does it for you.

This way you can watch a film in the nearest cinema and easily find out where you can have a drink afterwards. Or if you are looking for a hardware store, you can immediately see if there are any other similar businesses around it.

The best route planner

A large number of route planner users consider Google Maps to be the best. This app is free to use and extremely comprehensive due to the large amount of data that Google has at its disposal. The handy app is easy to use on Android phones and there is also a version for the desktop. Other free route planners are those of the AA and the RAC.

A paid route planner that is highly regarded by many customers is the TomTom route planner, but the emphasis of this route planner is on navigating from A to B. An extra big advantage of these planners is that they can be used even if you are not connected to the internet. So in areas with little coverage you don’t have to worry about getting lost.
