    route planning outside US with android tablet?

    I liked mapmyride.com when I was at home. Doesn't allow me to plan a route now (in Mex.) Bikeley won't work either, nor will ridewithgps.

    Anyone out there using an ANDROID TABLET for route planning outside US? What works for you?

    Thanks!

    Web versions of RideWithGPS works in France and Italy, so does BikeRouteToaster.com. Can't speak to smartphone browsers, but at least on desktop browsers you can also use the GoogleMaps CueSheet bookmarklet to turn routes drawn in Google Maps into customizable cue sheets, elevation profiles and GPS files. If you can add javascript bookmarklets to your Android browser, it should work.
