Rest Area Finder
By Clean Micro, LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This Free application automatically finds your location and displays nearby rest areas. The rest areas are displayed on a map along with your current location. In addition to rest areas, scenic vistas and welcome centers are also shown on the map. The rest areas are displayed with different colored hot air ballon icons. To find out more information about each place you simply click on the hot air ballon icon. When you click on an icon more information such as amenities are given to you.
As you move, the application will notice your location has changed and automatically update the map. There is a settings icon on the bottom right of the map that allows you to change how far out (from your current location) you want to look. You can change this from 100 to 500 miles.
It's really easy to figure out the distance from current location to the rest area.
We have thousands of rest areas for you to discover, however some close, some new ones pop up. So we've included a button to leave your comment or you can send us email if some of the information is not correct.
Currently only rest areas in the US and CA are covered.
What's New in Version 3.1
1. Bug fix.
2. Add the Rest Area Title on the detail page.

Very disappointed with last update, It makes absolutely no sense to me why they changed my location from the widely used "blue dot", which made using the app very easy... now my location pops up as a rest area symbol. If there's several rest areas in the area you have to study the map much longer to figure out which are actual rest stops.... or just MY LOCATION!
Where am I?
I would give it 5 stars but it's not working right. This app worked fairly decently until the latest iOS upgrade. Now it shows the rest areas but it no longer shows the moving dot showing your location. Please fix it.
This is not a bad app but could use some improvement. We got to the rest area and it was closed so had to go further up to a store after we passed several places before the rest area we could have stopped at had it showed us it was closed.
