Google’s Field Trip notifies you when there’s a point of interest, based on your chosen categories and location. If you’re connected to a Bluetooth device, it sends you an audio alert.
If you must stop at a highway exit, the iExit app tells you what services are available. If McDonald’s is your road trip tradition, you can mark specific chain locations as favorites to learn when they’re coming up next.
Roadtrippers is a trip-planning app. Plug in your starting and ending point, as well as attractions you’re interested in seeing. It outlines the route for you, with stops at museums, amusement parks, and what it calls “weird stuff.”
Think of it as a way to get off the beaten path without a lot of preparation.
