Calling all troopers

I'm on a roll from mtl to Cali and I was hoping one could lend me a hand (and a private computer for a few minutes).
I recently discovered how much good the rever website and app can do to help me with my routing, however I need access to a personal computer to download the Garmin basecamp and export all my work into my GPS.

Anyone along the way (currently Montgomery Alabama (13) then new Orleans (14-15-16 or so) then on my way towards Austin TX...

That would be greatly appreciated since no libraries wathsoever let you download anything on their machines.

Let me know
Be safe

This sounds like a scam. I would not advise anyone to give control of your computer to this person.

At most, download the .gpx file to your computer and send him an email with a .gpx attachment.

Welcome to STromtrooper ... sorry about the rough greeting, but people can be fairly protective of their computers, for the same reasons you can't install Basecamp at a library.

Have you tried Furkot ? It lets you download the .gpx file and save it to your SD card ... you can do that from any computer!

I'm confused.

You didn't plan your trip or you didn't install maps...

Try the Scenic app. You may be able to plan what you want on your phone. I'm in CA so my computer wouldn't be much help since it's at the end of your journey.

Biglarry, don't get upset. We've had scammers and such with few posts come and go.
If you spent any time on this forum you'd realize there is a rapport built over a period of time.
Sometimes the way a question is asked will get a different response.
