We also enjoyed how you can play back your itinerary directly from the application.

The demo version itself is pretty limited, as a watermark constantly appears over the map, and you can't update the map and get the latest locations and roads, unless you actually purchase the application.

RouteBuddy is a solid mapping application for anyone serious about preparing a long journey and wanting to monitor their location via a GPS.

    "Worthless"

    Worthless, it's free and it's worth nothing. To get a map costs about $24, it's a British program so it sells in pounds.... More.
