What Trip Planner works well?

Tried using the Honda Trip Planner. It was good for point A to point B.
I tried the Garmin BaseCamp, but camp seem to get that to work for some reason.

Road Runner magazine has one (sponsored by Yamaha) that is supposed to be very good. However they want $65 a year. That seems expensive to me.
I've use both the Honda and the Harley Davidson trip planners and preferred the Harley Davidson.
I've heard that Rever (hope I have that name correct) is supposed to be good.
I use Google Earth Maps to lay out my routes/trips. I do not do the GPX transfers myself so I can't comment on that aspect.

I really like inRoute for my iPhone. It allows custom routes. When you make a detour it gives you the choice to recalculate to the next waypoint instead of recalculating the whole trip which has forever been a pet peeve of mine.

If I remember correctly there is a free version which allows up to 5 waypoints. I think I paid $9 usd for the full version. Seems like someone told me it went up a little bit it was a one time fee not a subscription.

It is the only navigation app I use when on a motorcycle

I mostly use CPS...... explanation if you're not familiar later.

When I use the GPS it's usually Garmin Base Camp with Google predecessor like @TAL .

I know Steve @Luv2fish swears by Furkot.

I really like Furkot because of the flexibility on mapping and the importing. Learned of it at one of the M&G a couple of years ago. Free (for the most part). If you want some of the advanced feature it costs a little bit (like searching for KOA campgrounds).

I use everything I have at my disposal at the given time: maps, GPS x 2, google and road distance calculators, and good old dead reckoning, as well as what fossil mentioned: CPS. I have no luck using planner programs on the confuser, and since I can't load them into my NAVI and haven't tried with the Zumo, I don't care. I get there, and I get home.

Generally I'll use Mapsource that will load into my Zumo. Basecamp is also suppose to be good, but I'm more comfortable using Mapsource.

CPS, BWAhahahaha!!!

I use google map and an actual paper atlas. Look at the atlas to figure out a way, google map to see distance and to look at the intersection, then print out maps to have handy. I don't load this into my gps, but just use that technology to keep up with where I am and how far to the turn. Last step is to write the turns onto a piece of blue painters tape and stick that to the windshield. Batteries never die.

Thanks for the explanation Mark. Nobody does it better than the founder of the system LOL
It was fun getting ready to leave fossil's's on the trip home 2 years ago (yeesh 2 years already?). Rand McNally on the table, my tablet, my Garmin Zumo, roll of tape, a sharpie, ball point pen, and some note paper. Only glitch I had was relying on brain and memory power (oops) to get from Bill and Janice's house to the interstate to get on to Columbus. It was a beautiful day for a scenic route de-tour, nice river-side road
