PlanARoute is a great tool for creating or recording multi-stop driving, walking, cycling or point-to-point routes. More than directions from points A to B, PlanARoute gives you directions from points A to Z.

Use it to plan or record a tour or any other multi-stop journey.

Interested in knowing where you have been but do not want to waste battery power running your device’s GPS? Just take a photo at key points in your journey and PlanARoute will plot on a map those photos and generate a route with addresses, distances and directions from those photos.

Included are two example tour routes (New York and Central Park) which demonstrate the features of PlanARoute. No need to learn complex software. View and play with these example tours to learn how to use this app and use them as a model on how to create your own routes.
