RAC Route Planner
In fourth place is the RAC Route Planner, which has one of the best text-based systems.
The RAC Route Planner is used by over a hundred thousand motorists every year thanks to its reliable text-based planning system. When you visit the website, the RAC Route Planner pinpoints your location automatically if you allow it, and then all you have to do is enter a location. The route planner will then offer you three suggested routes to choose from, incorporating motorways and a-roads. Like the best route planners, the RAC Route Planner also gives you an estimated time for your trip.
What makes the RAC Route Planner great is the easy to follow text-based directions which can be printed out, emailed, or shared on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. There is also now a beta feature for walking directions although we haven't tested this function yet.
The only downside to this route planner is that it doesn't incorporate traffic into directions - traffic is on a separate tab. Also, this route planner uses Google Maps for its map, which is fine, but it would have been good to see a homegrown map.
