Droid / Verizon touring GPS advice?
Hello Folks, I've been carrying a Garmin 76CSX on my Surly LHT since 2006, but it's given up the ghost and died, and now I'm trying to figure out what to replace it with.
First question seems to be: a dedicated GPS or a Droid Smartphone? I'm inclined to say: Droid Smartphone. I love the idea of touring and bring able to search for hotels etc. on the go.
I'd like to ask if anybody has any recommendations/warnings on either hardware or Apps. Key needs: waterproof/resistant, store tracks and generate maps, plan trips and routes in advance, get turn-by-turn audio guidance while touring, love to be able to mount it on the bike.
Thanks in advance.
