From the map above, you can download what's called a GPX file.
There are a number of apps available for both iPhone and Android that let you view the GPX file. Once I have a chance, I am also going to make it so you can view it on Google Maps.
I am also working on an app that will let you view this but that's going to be a few months yet before it's ready to try.
If you're interested in more about GPS's, navigation, and GPX files I wrote an article about it a while ago. It's a little technical but it might be of some benefit. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
As I continue to make progress on the Miles By Motorcycle mapping tools, I've been asked a number of times recently to explain the difference between the concepts of "Tracks" and "Routes" as they occur on GPSs, the maps here on the site, and in GPX files.
My hope is that this answers some of those questions.
First, a little background:
Latitude and Longitude
The foundation concept for all navigation is the geographic coordinate system.
For simplicity's sake, the Earth can ...Read More
