  1. Default Best software (S&T?) w/ this feature ????

    Hello all,

    New member here. First post. Be gentle with me.....

    I am looking for recommendations for trip planning software.
    Microsoft Streets & Trips seems to be the most-commonly-used software here but I've been unable to determine if it has a feature that I really really want.

    The main feature I am looking for is something that after I have established a route, will allow me to find certain types/categories of POIs along (or within an amount of miles I input) that route.

    Basically, I want it to help me find things I wouldn't want to miss as long as I was in the neighborhood.

    For instance, if I'm planning a trip from Fredtown to Wilmaville, I'd like to be able to see all the CATEGORY=historical attractions within MILES=20 miles of a planned route.

    Hope I'm making myself clear. Appreciate any helpful comments.

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    Streets and Trips allows search of POIs from a specific point outward, but I think you could put in a search for POIs from key locations along your route and get the information you're looking for that way.

    Default S&t

    S&T will do this, as posted before. Also the AAA triptik I beleive will do that as well.
