You could potentially use Garmin Bicycle computer or a Triathlon/Running computer and get something close to what you are looking for. Download the Garmin Connect software or App for free to view information, stats, playback your trip on the map, etc. It will also save all your tracking data on your PC to be used with other software.Some of these devices have a battery life of 15+ hours so should be good for day's drive or more if connected to a USB charger. I have tried this on a Key West trip about 10 years ago with satisfactory results. Not sure if it will show pics though.To give you an idea here is a bike ride I did with some of the information shown on the Garmin Connect website.
Dug through my activities and found a Motorcycle trip I recorded using a bicycle computer. Day 1 of a 12 day ride we did to Vancouver. Also a train ride from the City to my Mom's place. Like you, I too like to go back and see some of the road trips I have done.
I have been using My Tracks for a few years now and I love it. That's terrible news that it is going to disappear.Def
