For the best way to plan a journey, look no further than our test winner Google, which provides everything you need from a route finder.

It won our last test and it triumphs again. It’s easy to input locations and will give you a route based on current traffic, flagging up congestion with a colour-coded section. There are multiple route choices for you to select and you can print off turn-by-turn directions easily. There’s also satellite imagery and StreetView (street-level photography), which are handy when navigating by landmarks.
