Good Sam Trip Planner

How many of you miss the old trip planner they had on their website? I used it to plan trips by marking stops every 250 miles or so. I have a 250 mile "tail" and it was so easy to plan stops.

a lot and liked it.

We've been using it to plan our trips this summer...

Maybe they moved it on you?

It's here as far as I know: RV travel – trip planning tools and information from Good Sam Club

I think the trip planner is there. I liked the one they had on the disc. It was easy to use and gave you a lot of info. I think the last one was 2011. The one I have is 2008.

Sorry ti hijack your thread but the planner sounds good and I looked at the good Sam site and it was appealing since I will be traveling more in the near future. Is it a good deal or am I being blinded by what appears really good.

Oops...I missed the part about it being the 'old trip planner'.

I didn't know there was an older version so I have nothing to compare it to. The new version certainly has it's quirks but I find it pretty useful even though certain aspects can be annoying at times.

I have been using the Good Sam Trip Planner for the last two year's trips. Currently planning a 3 month trip using it. The planner is like all other software, in that after using it for awhile you get used to its features. Maybe being a retired IT guy, I'm more used to technology changes and learning to adjust to them.

Yea, this is the new one. I don't like it near as well as the older version.

Yes the new one sucks, used to use the old one and as you say could put stops in and move the scree around with cursor. New one can only move with arrows, and where you want it to go fly's off your screen. bring the old one back, Please !
It was easier t use, in my opion.
