    GPS with Track Upload and Voice Commands

    I've done all the searches, read all the threads. It seems to me there are no programs currently that allow you to draw up a map on a 3rd party site, upload a GPX file, and give you voice commands. Unless, I'm horribly mistaken.

    I have a garmin 305, and an iphone. Currently I've been planning my routes on MotionX Drive by entering the destination and adding a dozen "stops" in order to get it to use the roads I want to follow. The problem is I have to click continue whenever I hit one of those stops.

    I wear a small bluetooth receiver with a single headphone in my right ear. It allows me access to the phone without cords, and a free ear to hear my surroundings.

    MotionX has 2 applications... 1 that has voice nav.. the other has track uploadiing.. Why can't they combine the 2? It's driving me nuts!

    Does anyone else have any suggestions.

    I have the answer, but it's not what you want to hear: OSMAND for Android phones only. It does all you want, including GPX file download and upload (to and from RidewithGPS, for example), voice commands, free worldwide map databases, off line routing with GPS signal only (data off), multiple languages, nightly updates, the list goes on. The app is free but donations are encouraged.

    Sierra Bob, if I may, it sounds as is there's a problem with OSMAND - because otherwise it sounds perfect. (not trolling - genuine question) - Why isn't OSMAND what they want to hear? (Because it sure sounds like what I've been looking for)

    Thank you. Sincerely, Ed

    Only because it's for an Android phone, not for bosoxmrkn's iphone.
