TLDR: Half the app works great! The app is good for locating rest stops on your route from the state/highway searches on the HOME screen. The MAP is a hot mess! It’s slow, it skips and stutters, it doesn’t respond well to pinch to zoom, and eventually just locks up completely and forces a restart of the app. And don’t even try switching between standard and satellite view! I thought that maybe loading the ads was causing some issues with lag inside the app, but unfortunately paying for the full version didn’t help with the map issues. Let my $2 save you the trouble. I would recommend the free app in general, but I wouldn’t recommend paying for it until the map is addressed.
I’ve not found another app that does what this does. While the developer was rebuilding this app, I really tried to find a replacement and couldn’t. This new version is pretty awesome. You can route on major highways although I’m not sure it gives you a route option. But once you get on the route you’re taking it will show where the rest stops are. You can FILTER to make a route and for requirements. Do you need an RV Dump?? Or wifi? There are tons of things you can filter for. It doesn’t give you exact mileage between rests so you have to do some simple math to subtract one mileage from another to figure that out. I highly recommend everyone download this before you head out on a road trip. It’s very helpful!
I would give this app five stars all day long if it hadn’t started giving me a blank white screen every few times I use it. The info on it has always been good, reliable, and up to date and it’s super easy to use. I love it. But now I’m getting really frustrated and when I try to go to app support I get “page not found” so I may have to look for a new app.
Tried to use on my most recent trip, but was disappointed that the app just did not work. Could not tell where the next rest stop was. Tried to go to maps, but only got blank screens. What in the world is up with this app? Wish I had not updated. Changing from eastbound to westbound doesn’t change order of listing. It still shows easternmost stop on i40 in NC at the top, instead of westernmost that you would expect going west. On my earlier version you could change this with the little arrows. Stops should be ordered in direction of travel. Going back to app store to see if there is another rest stop app to try!
With so many rest areas closed and other apps not showing whether they are open it is wonderful having this app. It shows which rest areas are open and gave a time period for the currentness of the information. It is so disheartening to count on a rest area then arrive to find it closed.
I just left on a road trip today, and after failing to easily find rest areas in Google maps and Waze, I downloaded this app. It’s definitely useful. When you tap on a rest area, don’t miss the “share“ button in the upper right. That lets you push the location in to the navigation app of your choice.
Just moved to Atlanta and I’ve been driving down to miami to visit family. Never had to do long road trips before. This app is EXTREMELY helpful for timing out stops and knowing when you’ll have another chance to pee! I use it for every trip. It’s awesome. It’s easy to read. Easy to use. Very very helpful. A+!
We are retired and travel the highways with our trailer in tow. Our service dog travels with us and it is nice to see what areas are ahead for him to stretch his legs. Very helpful in determining which route to take because convenance is now of more importance than time.
I used to love this app. On a couple trips this year, however, it has failed to open the state I select & show me ANY highways or interstates to be able to see when the next rest areas are. It’s recently updated for “big fixes” but we’ll see if it actually loads all the information it should so it’s available when needed.
Been great till yesterday. Used it almost daily. Now i just get a white screen when i try to use it. Loaded a different rest stop app but don’t like it anywhere as well as i did this one. Hope they fix it.
This could be ok while at home but I wanted a travel app to show me where rest areas are. The silliest thing keeps happening. It says “uh oh you don’t have Internet” then something like please check your connection. I am using phone data not WiFi in my vehicle. WHAAAT!!! Why would you develop a phone app that needs Internet?? Just silly.
Love this AP. We drive an eighteen wheeler and this ap has helped us plan bathroom ,puppy exercise, and required safety breaks. I use it daily. Thank you for putting together such a helpful tool for us professional highway warriors!!
To small to see this app is useless who made this crap you need a magnifying glass to see this crap come on man what is this I’m very disappointed in you guys for creating something so poor in quality I can’t give you a star for this unless I can’t post without giving you something plz people bypass this crap poor poor poor quality ...
This used to be a great app and we used it for all of our travels. Since your latest update I can no longer access it. When I click on the app it just shows a white screen. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling. Still nothing. Please fix this!!!
Unfortunately, I decided to “upgrade” my app. No it will not do anything! The only thing I get are the ads at the top. Says it cannot get states from the server, won’t show any rest areas on a map. Cannot enter route. Absolutely worthless
I loved this app a few years ago. Now when I open and select in state view more app CRASHES. Trying to look at any state nothing loads. Disappointing as i really did love knowing options for safe stopping.
Loved this app until today. Just get a white screen. Really need it now bc we are on the road in motor home pulling our Jeep. Worked great going out to Colorado 2 weeks ago and now heading home to Texas It just crashes.
This app will help you easily find the nearest rest stop on the US, including Interstates, US highways, and state highways! You can browse by state and interstate or you can browse on a map. This app will show you the traditional rest areas as well as welcome centers and service plazas on turnpikes. Key features: - List view allowing you to browse by state and interstate. - Map view allowing you to see how far the next rest stop is. - Shows available facilities and hours (if available) - Mark rest stops as a "favorite" - Send rest stop to various navigation apps - Shows number of car and truck parking (if available) - Check in to rest stops to earn badges - Read reviews prior to stopping We strive to make sure the information is as accurate as possible. If you find any errors or omissions, please feel free to let us know! The GPS is used in the background only when you ask to receive a notification about a particular rest stop. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
