** Note: If you have flagged sites on an older version, they will NOT transfer to this update. (I feel your pain, I made screen shots of my flagged sights and remarked them on this version. Just hold down the top button (aka sleep button) and the home button at the same time, and it will put a photo of your screen into your photo album.)

Awesome app - should be $10
This app has taken all Route 66 data from all sources and consolidated it into one easy to use, map-based app.
It has all of the alignments of Route 66 (new, old, Ozark Trail) in a Google maps type interface.
And it has full information on all of the attractions, history, etc. a LOT of content. And it has many lesser-known and 'just off the route' attractions. Very cool.
Out of the 200 or so attractions I visited, maybe 5 were incorrectly placed on the map. Even then, the marker was close enough that you could find the place.
In my opinion, this app makes all other Route 66 books, guides, maps, etc. obsolete. Awesome app!!!
Many of the maps show incorrect locations and, even in a quick review, I found inaccurate information. I sent the developer a correction for one mistake over a year ago and it has never been corrected.
Only good as a very rough guide. Make sure to do your own research rather than relying on this app.
I would not spend the $ on this app again.
We drove the full Route 66 and this app was a great help more than once. It contains a lot of must-see roadside attractions that you won't necessarily find in a book. Absolutely worth the money! Thank you!
