  1. Set both departure and arrival locations for flights, trains, etc.

    It would be great if, for transportation, we could set two locations: one for departure and one for arrival.

    • route planning features for road trips

      I'd like to be able to enter start and end locations, and add or remove stops inbetween. Overlayed on this I'd like to be able to see lodging, tourist stops, food, gas stations etc...

      • get directions or route between different places in my trip

        If we have a bunch of places we're going on one day, we'd like to get directions from our hotel to each of them and then back. Right now, we use Google Maps and have to copy each place into it. It would be nice if Planapple could somehow do this for us.

          We’ve added something to make this a little easier. Under the map, there’s a new “Get directions on Google Maps” link. Clicking that will open Google Maps with all of the places currently showing on the map, and you can get directions between them there.

          As a reminder, in Planapple the map shows whatever places are in the list on the left. So if you’re looking at Dining, all the restaurants will show up. (Also, places only show up on the map if Planapple knows their addresses. You can set or change an item’s address by clicking “Edit Details” on the item.)

        • Overview map of all destinations

          Why not have an overview of your trip available, with destinations being connected by "as the crow flies" lines. Then be able to drill down on the individual destinations to zoom in.

          • Export locations as gpx (or kml) with categories

            I'd like to have planapple's locations on my mobile. But i'd like to use an OpenStreetMap tool like OsmAnd, because it works much better for me regarding offline navigation and self-defined favorites. So a more general export of all locations as gpx or kml would be really nice (i'd prefer gpx! :) ).

            My current workaround is to select "Everything" in planapple, copy the string you provide via "Get directions on Google Maps" and convert it with a python script to gpx, then i can import these as favorites in OsmAnd. Sadly, the categories get lost as they are not…

            • Have draggable map markers

              Not everything is known to google. Most rural or "secret" attractions can't be found by address but only coordinates. Having draggable map markers wourl really improve usability.

              • Map where tripmates are traveling from

                It would be nice if there was a way to post up a map where everyone could edit where there are coming from for this event.

                • Keep everything visible on the map

                  Show all locations I have added concurrently on same map instead of toggling between them

                  • map order and size

                    I would have preferred to be able to print out a map of our stops with pin drops numbered in chronological order. Also, the map on the right could have covered a larger part of the page. Even though I would zoom in, it never seemed large enough for planning.

                      • download the trip, not print it!

                        I want to send this itinerary to my family without them having to log in (being invited by me) but a print out just does not work in this case. So a download or save as pdf would be fabulous!

                        • Add gps coordinates in the address field

                          Putting gps coordinates in the address field seams to find a place close to the coordinates, but not at them. Would be handy to be able to recognice coordinates in the address field. For example the trailhead of a hike might get stored that way.

                            • Suggest Transit options

                              You'd benefit from a function to make suggestions for transit in places like japan that help you to know which lines to take to get from one spot to another, so that your itinerary is in one place. As it stands, I'll need to print this and write notes as i refer to the subway map.

                              • improve the map function

                                Hi Gang, love this app, but the map needs to be bigger, a route to get to your desitnations more clearly identified (even a single dark blue line) and I dont see ANY suggested nearby sites once I pick a spot. I'm pretty sure the video I watched about this app suggested that was one of the benefits.

                                      • Interactive Map

                                        I think it would be really great if you could interact with the map. By this, I mean being able to click on locations or marking certain locations (possibly adding notes to each point I've marked). If there was an interactive map like this, it would be much easier for me to visualize my trip and its route. The interactive part of the map would be extremely helpful!
