Description

RoadAhead™ organizes the world by exit. Why search around you, when you want to know what's Ahead? RoadAhead searches the exits ahead for gas, food, lodging, landmarks, and many more categories - with ratings, prices, cuisine, distance from exit, and other helpful info. Here’s what the media has been saying about RoadAhead: • ‎"Because we don't double back, kids. If you wanted to go to Burger King, you should have told me 30 miles ago." - Rafe Needleman, cnet - RoadAhead: Savior of the long-distance driver? ‎• "What if you could compare the gas prices of the stations at the next exit, versus those 30 miles down the road? What if you could make sure you never drove past another doughnut shop with a five-star rating on Yelp?" - Scott Kirsner, Globe Columnist, Innovation Economy RoadAhead, organizes the world by exit • ‎"RoadAhead is not your typical location-based app that simply tells you the amenities around you..." Best App: Find What's off the Next Highway Exit • “One of the joys of writing for TUAW is being able to devote some time to finding apps that are unique and make life easier for our readers.” Mel Martin, TUAW RoadAhead is a different and clever nav app • “Have you ever stopped off the highway for a quick caffeine jolt -- and then wanted to toss the bitter-tasting brew out the window as you whiz by a Starbucks five minutes down the road?” Automotive App of the Week: RoadAhead • "..but if your question is, 'Where am I going?,' look to RoadAhead for answers.", Seth Kugel, NY Times Travel Section Unlike other travel apps, RoadAhead organizes the world by upcoming exits: • locates you and shows the upcoming exits - for most highways in the US • shows what's ahead, and doesn't bother you with stuff behind or around you • optimizes your pit stop with multiple services - gas AND food AND groceries - unlike other apps that can only search one category • shows merchants in an easy to read list or map, with ratings, prices and distance/direction from exit • let's you plan ahead - just select the highway and initial exit to search Please note that RoadAhead is designed to work on limited access highways, e.g. highways with exits - interstates, US highways, state routes, and beltways. If you are not on a highway, RoadAhead can search Around your current location. One last, important thing - USING YOUR PHONE WHILE DRIVING IS A BAD IDEA (and in some states illegal). Hand your phone to your passenger and ask them to navigate. Please use good judgment when using your phone in the car.

    Saved me from running out of gas en route from DC to Boston!! Found a great sandwich shop and a nice park to walk my dog as well (all within a few minutes of my route) Amazing innovation. Excited to see what comes out of RoadAhead Labs in the future; the new update is sleek!!!

    Keeps the next exit at the top and scrolls as I drive. Also the map mode lets me find the way off/on exit ahead. Love it!
  • The Best!

    The new RoadAhead is amazing - helps me find the perfect exit for a dog walk and cheap gas. The new Map mode lets me pick the easiest exit and auto-scroll always keeps the next exit at the top of the list.er and more intuitive
  • Just awesome

    Beats all the others for finding that perfect pit stop. Just finding cheapest gas at the most convenient exit makes it worth it. Not to mention the cool diner I found just off the highway!
  • Better than ever! Thanks for adding auto scroll. Maybe add trip planning mode in future?

    Thanks for updating one of my favorite apps, I used this for years when driving to kid sporting events and looking for places on the way...great for finding a pizza place as you are driving to and from and ordering ahead of time. Yelp integration is very helpful, as well as the gas options. I love the additional categories and updated UI.
  • Great app to use while traveling

    ***Updated my review*** Developer added only feature I really missed: auto-scrolling of exits as you drive past them. Years ago the earlier versions had it but I guess GPS depleted battery too fast if you weren't plugged into USB. This version makes efficient use of iOS advances in background GPS so battery draw no longer an issue. Better maps integration for visualizing choices is an unexpected plus. I pull it out for road trips away from home to figure out my options for food, coffee, gas, bathroom, rest areas. I love how the filters can easily be tweaked to focus on only the types of things I'm looking for, and then get's you there via maps integration. Top app in its class... and now they're pulling even further ahead
  • Very helpful

    Can't say enough good things about this app. No more relying on billboards and state-installed road signs. No more getting off at an exit to find there's nothing there or not want you're looking for. Well done. A road trip must have.
  • LOVE the app!!

    I've used this app numerous times, and it is very helpful navigating the interstate system! They are working very hard with Apple to get the latest glitch fixed! They helped us get to Disney and recently!! Great job guys!! The updates are great! And I love the around me where ever you are! Great app!!

    Update New awesome version !! Best kept secret in app store ************ So sad I discovered this app only during the second half of my cross country trip. Before that I spent hours agonizing whether I should fill gas at the exit in front or skip it and risk going dry. After I installed this app i was able to impress my wife by taking her to exotic resturants. They can improve this app by hiding exits that don't have results. Also the manual selection can be improved by showing near by interstates.
