Re: mapping and navigation for dummies

I`m not asking for the best gps. I`m asking more about looking at planed routes and transferring to a gps. Someone sent me a route in google maps. I can`t even open it! So tell me how you set up your routes? what map source do you use etc ? I would like to not be so dependent on other during a ride...

It is about a 4 1/2 hour ride to the starting point so the first day may be a butt burner followed by a gravel rod cruise. There is an observation tower shown as an option so if we are ahead o...
