Porsche Roads App helps find fun routes, instead of easy ones

The Roads App is currently available only for iPhone users and doesn't even require you to own a Porsche.

Porsche launched its Road App in 2019 and is currently said to have 1,80,000 users. According to reports, the carmaker recently refreshed its app, which now enables users to select the "best" route while travelling from point A to point B, where the operator defines what "best" stands for.

Reports mention that while Google Maps takes into account fuel efficiency and driving time to select the best route, the Roads app by Porsche allows users to select a "challenging or scenic" route instead. Users can create a profile and input what to look out for while travelling, be it wanting to drive on good twisty roads or find the local spots to stop at. Based on this, the app will plan the route to your destination.

Apart from the AI-generated route, the app also offers users to rate the routes, create their own and even leave comments/reviews. The app works best on road trips to unfamiliar areas, where it helps find good roads for users to enjoy their drive.

The Roads App is currently available only for iPhone users and doesn't even require you to own a Porsche. Users can simply select the route they want to take on the iPhone app and then mirror it on their car's infotainment screen via Apple CarPlay.
