SpaceNorman Posted January 11, 2016 Report Share Posted January 11, 2016 My wife and I are in our second day of our first extended trip outside our state - and for the first time are in areas that are completely unfamiliar to us. We've quickly come to realize that we've got some work to do when it comes to the navigator's role. We've also come to realize that while the coach's GPS system is great for the driver and "what's the next turn" sort of navigation - it's not well suited for keeping track of the "big picture". We're now in the market for better tools to put at the navigator's disposal. What I'd really like to find is a software application that provides the following functionality: Ability to recommend a route based on a starting point, a destination and any specific waypoints specified. Ability to use location services to constantly/automatically update "current" location in near real time. Stats regarding time/distance to destination and/or distance traveled from start. Ability to toggle between "map view" and "satellite view" (so that navigator can reconnoiter "tight areas" (i.e., see the layout of wherever we need to stop ... such as fuel stops, parking lots, etc.) It needs to run an iPad device Offline Map functionality would be nice - but not an absolute requirement Anybody have any recommendations?
