Depending on your journey's length, you may want to account for rest stops along the way. A rest stop might mean anything from an hour for lunch and a quick mental break, to an entire, over-night stay somewhere.
No matter the case, Highway Weather gives travelers the ability to add these stops into their journey's plan and observe how stopping for a period of time in one place affects the remainder of their trip.
Watch the video and / or read on to learn more.
Where to add rest stops
You can add rest stops to your journey in either the Map Tab or the Timeline Tab by tapping on the "Rest Here" button next to the location at which you'd like to stop.
Inputting the stop's length
Tap the "plus" and "minus" icons to add and subtract time to your rest stop. As of now, time changes are displayed in one-hour increments.
How adding rest stops affects the rest of your itinerary
As you add a rest stop and increase or decrease its duration, you'll notice the next forecast points in your journey adapt to reflect conditions based on your new arrival times at each point. You can observe this in the below screenshots.
This stop displays something akin to a lunch stop or extended rest stop a traveler may use to refresh and regroup.
Note the time & weather changes for future Forecast Points as time is added / subtracted to stops.
