Navigation app by miles

Is there an app or web site where it will tell me what falls into my range for the day from my current location?
Suppose Iím here and I want to travel 400 miles today. What falls into my 400 mile range. Donít matter which direction just what falls into my range.
Thanks
Pointrow

RV Trip Wizard recently added an Advanced Driving Circle feature that displays the user-settable range rings by roads and not by a simple radius.

These are set at 186 miles, 248 miles, and 310 miles. At 62 MPH that's 3 hours, 4 hours, and 5 hours respectively.

If you want actual miles from your location Base Camp will give you that information. Create a route, in any direction from where you are and it will give you mile x mile distance by placing your mouse arrow on the route you created.

Circles are accurate if you drive on straight roads only. In the mountains, not so much.



Base Camp is a free download from Garmin.

Not doubting you for a second, but from a practical planning perspective, what you're really looking for is the spot at which you want to start looking for your stopping point, whether for gas, rest stop, overnight or whatever. An exact mileage number really isn't that important as your actual stopping point is going to be plus or minus from that point anyway, and the advanced driving rings give you that search starting point much more accurately than the classic circles. BaseCamp provides many other attributes that make it a valuable tool, but for daily mileage planning, you already have that in RVTW.

I found your post in "Navigation, Routes and Roads". Thus was unaware of your RVTW.

Not a problem. The two previous posts had intro'd RVTW into the discussion, so I thought your post was building on those replies. We were both just trying to contribute to the discussion.
