This summer thousands of people across the country will load up their cars and embark on an epic journey of exploration and adventure. If you’re going on a road trip, one of the most essential things you need is a GPS to help you navigate unfamiliar territory. But besides that, you also must download these apps to your smartphone.

Best Road Trip Ever!; $3.99

One of the best things about going on a road trip is encountering so many different people and interesting places. When you stumble upon something truly unique and quirky, it can make it all instantly worthwhile. Unfortunately it can hard to locate really offbeat things, and it’s often luck that leads you to them. But with Best Road Trip Ever! you don’t have to worry about missing anything. It includes more than 7,000 awesome locations all across the country, and it will use your GPS to let you know what’s nearby at every stage of your trip.

Beat the Traffic; Free

When you have a destination in mind, you often want to get there without hassle. It will take you long enough to drive there, and getting stuck in unexpected traffic is one of the worst things that could happen to you. With Beat the Traffic, you can find out about any commuter traffic, construction, or accidents that could get in your way and slow you down, wherever you are. Input your route, and this app will notify you if you’d be better off finding another way. 

Road-Trip Bingo; $0.99

This simple, fun app will keep you entertained on the long, boring stretches of your road trip, because every adventure has a few mediocre moments. With Road-Trip Bingo, see how long it takes you to spot all the items on your card, including things like a horse, a train, and a cop car. It will occupy road trippers of all ages, and your top scores are saved so you can try to beat them later.

GasBuddy; Free

Road trips are definitely more expensive than they used to be because gas prices are so high. When you’re travelling by car across the country, make sure you download the GasBuddy app. It’s free, and it will save you a lot of cash. It will use your GPS and not only let you know where you can find gas near you, but where you can find the cheapest gas near you. As you’re driving, you can also report the gas prices you see and earn points to win prizes.
