4 Driving Apps You’ll Love

These apps can help you find fun points of interest, turn your phone into a dashcam, document your mileage for the IRS, or listen to a book while you travel.

Roadtrippers
This app makes any drive more enjoyable by highlighting those wonderful off-the-beaten-path places to visit. Its unique database contains millions of the world’s most interesting locations. It also has hundreds of preplanned road trips for North America’s more iconic routes, from the Pacific Coast Highway to Canada’s Icefields Parkway.

Roadtrippers helps people explore the world around them in an entirely new way by streamlining discovery, planning, booking, and navigation into an engaging and intuitive process. The web and mobile applications are free to use.

Available for Android and iOS:

MileIQ
Writing off your mileage for business commuting is a great tax deduction, but remembering to keep a log for the IRS can be a challenge.

MileIQ solves this problem by using your phone’s clock and GPS to automatically track and log all of your trips. At the end of each one, simply swipe left to categorize it as a personal trip or swipe right to classify it as a business trip. Your reports can easily be exported as an expense spreadsheet that is IRS-compliant.

Available on Android and iOS:

DailyRoads
If you’d like to add a dashcam to your car without buying another gadget, this app might be for you.

DailyRoads Voyager is an Android app that allows for continuous video recording from vehicles. Essentially, the application acts as a video black box, dashcam, or auto DVR, recording everything but keeping only what the user is really interested in. Any driver can now quickly and safely capture video sequences of important road events, which can be especially helpful in the event of an accident.

Audible
This app can make traffic tie-ups or long drives much more tolerable. And since it’s an Amazon company, it’s a name you can trust.

To listen to a best-seller or learn something new, just select an audiobook and tap the car icon. This easy-to-use display makes it super-simple to play, pause, and bookmark. Just drive and listen. It does the rest.

The subscription to Audible includes a credit for one free audiobook each month (regardless of price), and these books are yours to own forever.

Available on Android and iOS with a $14.95/month subscription:
