Motorcycle ride planner for iPhone
Sunday, September 1, 2013 @ 21:36
Not many years ago all motorcycle ride plans were made on a printed road map. Then the map was placed on the tank bag, and you had to look on the each time you were in doubt where to turn and in which direction you needed to ride. That was OK, and we still reached the motorbike roads.
Then the technology developed and we got the motorcycle gps which are watertight and can handle the harsh conditions on the motorcycle with vibrations and weather. That is still the preferred navigation system for some motorcyclists. The typical motorcycle gps are the Garmin Zumo 550 or the TomTom Rider 2, which are not only waterproof but are also delivered with a holder so it is easy to take the gps with you when the motorcycle is parked. With the new technology and the development from Tourstart, it is now possible to create a motorcycle tour and transfer this to the gps - totally avoiding paper maps.

However, we are in the middle of a change in technology as many motorcyclists now are having an iPhone. This means that no clicks are needed anymore.
