Interstate Rest Area (and more) Information

I stumbled upon this website and found it very useful. On this website you will find rest areas, road conditions, incidents, exit information, RV parks, truck stops and more. All the major interstates are included.

URL for mobile devices: Roadnow - Roads & Services
URL for laptops/computers: roadnow.com

Hope you find this link useful. :-)

If you have an iPhone there is an app called iExit that works on interstates and as you drive it displays what is at exits you are approaching. I believe it also shows rest areas.

I have several things that show me rest areas and truck stops.
1 is the My DAT Trucker Services app (shows rest areas and truck stops plus a few other things) (free)
2 is the Love's app (free)
3 is the Pilot/Flying J app (free)
I also have the Garmin DEZL760LMT which has truck stops, gas stations and truck repair places on it already. I also put some POI files on there for Veteran locations and Rest Areas (free POI files by the way).
I see when the rest areas are coming up on the GPS or I can look on My DAT Trucker Services app to see how far the next one is.

There are many apps and websites with this info. The thing I like about this site is it shows me all the POIs along the road in a list by mile maker, making it easy to see across the whole state without having to zoom in/out or scroll across a map. I do use the Garmin 7720 app on my iPad, Next Exit, and a host of other apps depending on the situation. It's nice to know what other apps are out there, I'm a retired techie but I still love the gadgets!
