Upon purchasing a subscription and tapping 'Navigate', a map displaying your current location will appear. If you're in U.S., this would be accurate. You can then input any city on Route 66 in the FROM field along with your destination in TO field; it calculates your route regardless of where you are. Ready? Hit that road!

Route 66 Navigation operates on a freemium model, meaning it's free to download with some features available at no cost, while others require payment.
▪️Why isn't Route 66 Navigation entirely free?
The adage "if you're not paying for the product, you are the product" often applies to free apps that sell user data or solicit funds from small businesses. However, Route 66 Navigation doesn't engage in these practices. Instead, its income supports software operations including testing and updates along historic Route 66, customer service provision and more. No user data is sold nor money solicited from local businesses on Route 66 - instead we actively support them without charge. Your purchase contributes towards this cause as well. Subscription fees cover not only developer salaries but also licensing fees paid per user to map providers along with Google and Apple charges plus all taxes (local taxes, VAT etc.).
▪️ What subscription options does the app offer?
Route 66 Navigation offers non-renewable and non-consumable weekly or annual subscriptions so there won't be any unexpected charges.
- Weekly Subscription ($19.99): Introduced due to demand from travelers who only need short-term access when traveling parts of Route 66.
- Annual Subscription ($39.99): Ideal for those needing ample time to plan multiple trips along Route 66 throughout the year.
The reason we don't provide a 2 or 3-week subscription is due to cost considerations. Sustainable operating the application requires significant funding, resulting in a two-week subscription costing as much as an annual one. To ensure fairness and value for our users, we've maximized the duration of our subscriptions.
▪️ What do you get for free?
- Complete access to POIs
- 200-page Ultimate Route 66 Guide Book in 8 languages
- News from Route 66
- And other features
After purchase the license, these features will be unlocked:

Our goal is to help all businesses related to Route 66, so you are more than welcome. It's easy, but we need your cooperation. Please, send us good quality photo of your business, but use your own pictures, or images with free copyright for use in our app. Also we need information like: NAME OF BUSINESS, STREET AND NUMBER, CITY, STATE, PHONE, URL, DESCRIPTION, OPENING HOURS, (c) TEXT (name of author), (c) IMAGE (name of author). Please, remember, that description must be written for travelers, just describe what about your business is and avoid useless marketing phrases, please. In the interest of quality of service for travelers, we reserve the right to shorten or modify your text, or in certain cases to disallow the posting.
Yes and no. The whole Route 66 Navigation app content features are working properly wherever an internet connection is available. However, the functions associated with your location do not work in the navigation part of the app outside of the USA. Conversely, if you manually configure the route from point A to point B on Route 66, you can prepare and save the itinerary of your entire Route 66 trip outside of the USA.
Yes, but with some limitations. Navigation is set to connect travelers to the nearest Route 66 point and allow them to ride Route 66 in the selected direction, either west or east. It may, therefore, be offered a longer or less efficient route compared to other navigation systems. Instead, directly on Route 66, your app will navigate only on Route 66 to show you a route on Route 66 even if you turn out to another route. :)
We've worked hard to bring you an app with top-quality content. We also went through the entire Route 66 twice to make sure that the selected routes are set up correctly. However, an error may occur. Also, in the name of other travelers, we will be grateful for any feedback that will help us improve the features, content, or services that the app brings. Please write to us, we pay attention to every message.
Of course! We believe that thanks to the great interest of Route 66 travelers, we will be able to continually improve and expand our application with new features to bring all travelers the best experience during their trip on Route 66.
