If you own a small business, drive for a living, or even if you're a busy mom, when you get in the car for a work trip, meeting, or to run an errand, the trip is never as simple as traveling from Point A to Point B. There's usually points C, D, E, F and G too.

And wouldn't you know it, the one thing Google Maps isn't good at is providing navigation for trips that require multiple stops. Luckily, there are great apps for both Apple and Android gadgets to help it where it lags.

The Road Warrior Route Planner helps you find the best traffic-free routes by prioritizing your route on time, traffic and schedule.

Using the app is fairly easy. It's a three-step process:

  1. You enter the addresses by selecting the magnifying glass icon in the upper right hand corner. Type in the address in the search bar and select "Add Stop." Repeat as necessary.
  2. One all the addresses are entered, click "Optimize." Here, you will a route summary that will tell you the fastest route based on distance, total travel time and more.
  3. When you're ready to hit the road, click "Navigate" to go to your first destination. Here, either Google Maps or Apple Maps will launch and provide you with turn-by-turn GPS directions.

It's that easy.
