Using routes from Google Maps & Other programs

Some route planning tips for those who are interested:

If you haven't noticed, Google Maps has a really cool new feature for route planning. You can 'drag' a route around to set waypoints between your start and destination. Now there is a way to export that route and convert it to a TomTom Itinerary (.itn) file. For further instructions, go here (and be sure to read them carefully!):

http://houghi.org/tomtom/index.php

There is also a shareware program called ITNconv that will convert a saved route between many different formats including Streets &Trips (.est file), TomTom, Garmin, KML, and other navigation program route formats.. It can be found here (beware, it is in French):

I've only played with these briefly, so YMMV..

If you have any other cool tips for navigation and planning, please post them here!

Happy riding!

Some of the more aware dinosaurs warned of the dangers of an iridium-enriched nuclear reactor. 'If this thing goes off', they warned, 'there would be nothing left but cockroaches and mammals.'
