REALTORS® spend countless hours in their cars. In fact, it is estimated that an average real estate agent drives as much as 20,000 to 30,000 miles per year for business. What is not estimated is how much time and miles are wasted back-tracking, getting lost or simply not taking the most expedient route. Having a navigation system that makes more efficient use of this incredible investment of time and mileage could save you more than just your sanity.

inRoute aims to do just that. inRoute is an iOS app — not currently available for Android — designed to optimize your navigation plans so that you take the most effective route. Every time. One of the best features of this app is the ability to input additional stops, or waypoints, as well as start and end locations. This is perfect for touring multiple homes in one trip. inRoute takes into account each stop's location and optimizes your route, helping you get to where you want to go easily and as quickly as possible using step-by-step voice navigation. The app even takes into account factors such as weather, curves and elevation!

The features of the free version are limited — only two waypoints per trip, for example — but there are two paid versions available that offer more functionality.

Some of the features available include:

  • Create custom routes.
  • Automatically or manually reorder destinations.
  • Import addresses from another source.
  • Access your contacts from within the app.
  • Set layover times at each stop for a more accurate time estimate.
  • Search along the route for places to eat, gas stations and other landmarks.
  • Export your routes.

For access to all of inRoute's premium features, you must sign up for one of the following plan options:

  • inRoute Pro: includes up to 100 locations per route ($29.99/year or $3.99/month)
  • inRoute Premium: includes up to 25 locations per route (one-time fee of $14.99)
