Best Trip Planner with Directions??

I am still trying to find a trip planner that has good printable directions. The Good Sam's version does not give (no exit #'s) enough info where the Trailer Life trip planner gives to much info. I want something that will match my Co-Pilot GPS as close as possible in case I loose signal from it. The DW likes to have some written instructions to look at also, plus we can compare them with what the GPS is telling me to do.

Any suggestions? I have plenty of programs for finding campgrounds.

Streets and Trips have been cancelled.

I have tried the Coach Net directions, but they was not very good. They are basic and will not give exact directions to exact campgrounds or coordinates.

MapQuest.com allows setting parameters and provides printable maps and directions. That and my Garmin were a good team until I got to trust my Garmin.
Now I review the route on my Rand-McNally map and let my "other woman" hollar out the way.
DW sometimes follows on the RM map.

I use Google's mapping program and print from there. I also use Delorme as it has not been discontinued but I do not print the directions. I used GPS based routing for business for 5 or 6 years and learned the hard way to cross check everything with Google or Mapquest. I went to Street Atlas when it became apparent I would not always have a good internet connection but I could plug a GPS head into a laptop with it running or route plan with no connnections. No mapping program is free of errors.

My Garmin was new in 08, has forever updates. Is not infalible. Nothing is! But I never get lost or drive off a boat ramp. 😉 It got "lost" last year on a back road that had been re-routed by about a mile.
Dont make the Journey too difficult.
Happy trails!

I still like Streets & Trips the best. Yeah, I would prefer it hadn't been discontinued, but that's not so bad. It takes decades for maps to get truly out of date.
