Your iPhone is one of the most important pieces of technology that you can have with you when you’re traveling, especially during a road trip, but are you using it to its fullest potential? Here are six of the best iPhone road trip apps that are sure to make your car ride easier and less stressful.

There certainly isn’t a shortage of apps available for the iPhone that you can use for road trips, and while I don’t go on road long trips too often (maybe 2-3 times per year), I always take use those opportunities to see what the best road trip apps are in order to optimize my traveling for the next time.

Of course, all of that data doesn’t make Google the most-liked company as far as privacy is concerned, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not a big fan of Google Maps.
