No idea with Trip Wizard, but with gas buddy you can scroll along your whole day's route in 2-3 minutes.



Pull up the address of "likely stations" and look it up on google map. You can get both street view and satellite view.

Yes, if you have one of the fleet fuel programs, that DOES change how you do it.

A fuel stop is a POI and you will need to click on the Search for POI button(red, center bottom) to get them display every time you move the map.

There are some spots in northern Florida where it would not surprise me that there aren't any gas stations for 50 miles. I was on a motorcycle trip a few decades ago and I had to plan my gas stops as my range was only about 100 miles. There was one place I got to on a Sunday afternoon where if I would have been 15 minutes later I would have had to spend the night in that town. I'm not saying that something isn't going wonky with Tripwizard but it also might be right.

Filters and POIs are different. Filters are for campgrounds(50a, wifi, pool etc). POIs are at a more general level(fuel,Elks,Sams etc.)

Got it. I was using the POI in the filters and not the red POI towards the center bottom. Thanks.

Next question.
How to get the driving radius to be on your current location? The circle goes to my last planned stop on the planned route and when i click the current location centering button in in the lower right corner it goes to my starting location.

I have my route 75% planned out and am now 400 miles into a 8000 mile trip.

You should look at some videos on our YouTube Channel.


https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCu8uA8TRlpHjlqyZC0WRZdg


To center the driving radius on a stop, click on the stop in the trip drawer. This will zoom in on that stop. To see the driving radius, zoom out a little, or click on the show entire trip button.

Another way to center the radius rings is to hover or click on a map icon to display the infobox, then click on the small red and blue circles in the bottom left hand corner of the infobox
