The Roadtrippers mobile app lets you take the Roadtrippers experience with you on the road. Let us ride shotgun and be your road trip companion as you head out onto the open road. Before you set off, let's get you familiar with what the Roadtrippers app can do.
Note that the sections reviewed below are all accessible from the bottom navigation bar in the app.
After logging in, the first thing you see is our Nearby section that allows to you quickly create a trip or look for places near you. It even knows the current time of day, weather, and your current location and will suggest categories for you to discover!
For example, if it's the morning it might suggest places to get breakfast or some coffee, even places to take a walk! If you tap one of the suggested categories, you'll be asked to choose if you want to look for these places around you or along a route.
- Selecting "around me" will find you places nearby.
- Selecting "along a route" will open up a new trip with your current location as the starting point.
Below that, you can tap Start New Trip or keep scrolling down to see some of our Trips Guides for road trips near you.
To view more categories, tap in the Search & Explore bar on the top of the screen. You can select and explore as many categories as you like.
You can zoom in/out and move the map around on this section to find places near you, in another area, or along a trip's route. You'll notice it has a Search & Explore bar at the top to select categories just like the Nearby section. Some other features in this section are listed below:
- Tap the 3 vertical dots to change the map style of share the map you're viewing.

- Tap the car icon in the green circle to start a new trip from this page.
