Make a Roadtrip Mixtape with Google Maps
Roadtrip Mixtape is a great way to create a play list for a road-trip containing only music by artists that are from the area you are traveling through. Drive through Boston and you might hear Aerosmith or Donna Summer. Drive through New Orleans and you might hear Lil Wayne or Dr. John.
To use the application you just need to add the starting point of your journey and your destination. Your journey is then displayed on a Google Map. Each leg of the journey is represented on the map by a green marker.
If you click on a marker you can view a list of local artists from that stage of the journey. If you select 'Play this leg' you can listen to the music for that leg of the journey. If you are a Rdio subscriber you will hear the full songs, if not, you can listen to 30 second samples.
