    iPad and mapping help

    I love to map out rides when traveling for work and usually use ridewithgps to do it. Works wonders on my pc but with my iPad it suck. I think it because iPad doe not have a mouse.

    So anyway I wanted to ask you all if you knew of a mapping program for the iPad that would allow me to map a ride from point to point and be able to save it and hope to load it into my garmin at another time. Really I just need an app to be able to map out a ride manually and save it and then in the future save it to download to garmin.

    Thoughts?

    Another iPad question, and has anyone figured out how to download stuff from a Garmin to an iPad? I have the very basic Garmin 200 (like a computer on steroids rather than a GPS, and it downloads beautifully to the laptop.

    But it tells me the iPad doesn't have enough battery to download my ride.
    Zero gallons to the mile

    Not an app, but you can draw maps with bikeroutetoaster and upload to many of the apps (I use motionx). You can also route with google maps on pc/Mac, convert to gpx (I wrote a ruby script; the formats are almost identical).

    Have you mapped out using the iPad?

    I always create the maps on a Mac, then download to motion-x. Of course, motion-x can then upload afterwards as well.

    Right now google bike-routing is my favorite. Just came back from a 30-mile ride on some neat, quiet roads that I probably wouldn't have found on my own.
