does anyone have advise for gps assited touring?
i tried searching this forum, but i couldn't find anything, which surprized me. maybe shallow archives?
my girlfriend and i are riding from dc to chicago this summer, and maybe the rest of the way across if all goes well. i suggested buying a gps, plugging in the place we were headed to, and kind of nosing towards the gps points. of course she thinks maps are the safe way.
the last tour we did we borrowed a friends gps an printed out a cue sheet from the internet. his gps unfortunatly was preloaded with egypt... ha
i'm looking at a gps with basic us maps loaded, and then kind of feel around for the country roads. cue sheeting the whole way seems kind of nutty to me, and a big waste of paper.
