If you’re looking to get more out of your road trip we’ve got an app for you – the Mobil 1 Open Road app. A great free app that let’s you explore great roads and attractions, it will also provide helpful car care advice.

Let’s just say you are planning a road trip. The Mobil 1 Open Road app makes it easy to plan the whole trip, from start to finish. Just pick a category from the drop-down list (like kids’ day out, museums and restaurants) and enter how far you want to drive. This app will show you how to get there and what attractions you should stop at along the way.

Unfortunately, right now Mobil 1 only offers the App in jolly old Great Britain. That being said, if you’re from the UK, or taking a trip to do some driving on the wrong side of the road, the Mobil 1 App will give you the Top 10 Great British Drives to explore, based on what users have been saying about them. It really takes the stress out of planning a road trip, and isn’t the purpose of a trip supposed to be about relaxation?

But the good times don’t stop there. The Mobil 1 Open Road app also has a car care section that tells you when to check your oil, how to check your oil and why to check your oil.

Watch the video after the jump to see it in action, and if you live in the UK, you can download it for free at the iTunes store.
