The Lincoln Highway also passes just 20 minutes south of me. I have driven sections of it many times.
Here is another that crosses east-west that's just about 40 minutes south of me.

Hey guys, from what I'm reading it seems Ms streets and trips does everything I need. The problem is that it doesn't work on android. I use my phone for navigation and the Google maps app doesn't allow you to add multiple way points and then use that for turn by turn navigation. Is there any app on android that does that effectively?

whats wrong with roadtrippers

I am curious as to why guys think roadtrippers is not good. They seem to be getting map data/directions from Google maps anyway. I found the tool to be pretty unreliable with 500 errors but functionality seemed to be what I would want from a road trip planning tool (at least for a road trip on the paved roads).

The Roadtripper app doesn't like any trip with more than 25 stops (I like planning out daily destinations), and neither does Google. Is there any system that is good for such multi destination trips?

Oh man, I hear ya! I've had this problem for years. Even made a mockup of an app that would solve this planning issue... Seems like Google only allows 25 waypoints. I'm talking with a developer about implementing something using an open source map... I'll keep in touch.

The waypoints are my issue as well , trying to keep the route on course uses up those way points very quickly .
