Has anyone here tried the "Road Warrior" route planning app?

Cease, Many years ago I tried a few different route planning apps.. A couple of them were just for truck drivers.

My experimentation didn't last very long, I just went back to using Google maps. It works and it's reliable. Sometimes the routes it picks are kind of questionable, but it always gets me where I need to be.
I think they are looking for an app that will take a list of stops and make them into the most efficient route. I just searched Google Maps and it said it did not have that feature.

After reading your question, I searched multi stop route planner. Most had a free trail. Route XL doesn't seem to require a trial.

I played with it a little and it does seem to work. You can download the route or open with Google Maps.

*Edited* Thought it'd be cool. DLing the iPhone app is fine but signing into the website to access/plan requires the $10/month subscription. Also noticed wording about uploading locations by text/CSV/data, without seeing if things can be done as simply as Bing.

I use RouteLX daily fee option when I have a route that has too many stops for Mapquest. So frustrating that Google Maps won't optimize, and limits you to 10 stops. The daily option is cheaper for me than a monthly subscription, since I only need it occasionally.
Thanks so much! That basically resolved my situation.

But what is Bing?

Can plug in about 24-25 addresses in a pinch.
Bing is a browser, like Google, it also has a mapping function. But I've never had good experiences trying to use free Microsoft products.
Bing is a search engine, just like Google, DuckDuck Go, or others. They are always used in conjunction with a browser such as Firefox (my favorite), Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge (which replaced Internet Explorer), Opera, etc.

Shopping Southeast Pennsylvania, Delaware above the canal, and southwestern NJ since 2008
I pay for Road Warrior app. There is a free version but it only allows about 10 stops. The 'pro' is like $11/ month and allows me to put in up to 125 stops. I really like it.
There were a few routes I had that were over 200 locations and I searched for a different route planning service but couldn't find one that was reasonable in price (most were aimed at commercial truckers/ large businesses)
