Looking for a GPS / Trip Planner App
I am looking for an app where I can map out a road trip ahead of time and check to see what road construction I will/may run into. Mapquest provides the route, but not the road construction information. From my little understanding, GPS provides detours for construction, etc. But is that only in real-time or can you check routes and construction ahead of time? Hope this makes sense. Thanks.

Re: Looking for a GPS / Trip Planner App
Of all the map software I have tried , I haven't seen anything that truly helps with road construction. About all you can do is keep an eye on Google maps traffic as you travel, then have your software calculate a route around places that you mark to avoid as you travel.
Thanks. I am planning a trip and am trying to decide which of the two interstates I should take based on construction. I guess I will do it the old fashion way and just check the state dot websites the day before I leave. I was hoping to take advantage of an app to make it alittle easier on me, but oh well.
