Hey guys,

So i'm super excited to have the guzzi up and running, a trunk and tankbag all close to setup...

I'm used to doing longer trips, all backroads. these would sometimes be cross country trips that take a month, solo. I would use paper maps for these primarily, and only gps when needing to navigate a denser area.

Now I live in New York City, have two kids, and need to adapt or let my moto love die... it won't happen!

So, i am wondering if you all can recommend any apps for the iphone that are geared towards finding and navigating good motorcycling roads... google maps is primarily geared to getting to a destination as quickly as possible --not interested. I am wondering if there is an app that would do what i use paper maps for... i would highlight all the roads that looked good, pick an eventual destination, and then just try to hit as many of the good roads as possible - time be damned.

any suggestions?

thanks,
r

Eat, Sleep, Ride (ESR) should be in your app store. Let's you record your rides, and see others near you.

I'm using the TomTom ap. It doesn't require cell service to function in real time. You down-load the map area you want and it stays in the phone. Then all it needs is a GPS signal. It's very user-friendly IMO and it has features that let you avoid highways, toll roads, etc and you can select twisty roads. It works well for me.

I would take a long look at an app called Scenic. I did some deep diving into several apps some months ago, and concluded that Scenic might be the way to go, but since there's not yet an Android version I'm SOL. Most of the others I deleted before even leaving the house.
