Motorcycle route transfer from iPhone/iPad to a gps
Many motorcyclists use an iPhone or iPad, and bringing them on the holiday tour. Then the question occur, whether it is possible to transfer a motorcycle route from the iPad to the gps. This is not possible. We are sorry, but this is a decision made by Apple, and there is nothing we can do about to change that.
Why is it not possible
On the computer, the Garmin Communicator or TomTom HOME is used to transfer the route directly into the gps, and both software programs cannot be installed on the iPad nor the iPhone.
I need an alternative - so how do I then get the ride to my gps?
There is always an alternative solution, and here are mentioned a few. As mentioned, we cannot change how Apple devloped their products, but we cannot let that stop us getting some great rides on the motorcycle.
Alternative 1) Download motorcycle routes to a gps from a computer
Direct download from a computer
Download via a SD card
So, all you need todo is the following
Alternative 2) iPhone - use a navigator
To answer about the alternativ onthe iPhone is easy, as you can install the Tourstart app. Then you have all Tourstart functions available, and you can also use the turn-by-turn navigaiton to be guided on the entire route.
Alternative 3) iPad - use as navigator
A few words about the iPad:
So, the iPad is best for getting inspiration of motorcycle routes and events.
