Not getting lost en route

Just thought I'd post and let everyone know that I'm starting to look into how we can navigate our way around, i.e. not have to cycle further than we need to - which, apart from the 2 Daves, I'm sure you'll all be in favour of.

Offline, voice prompted, turn by turn navigation, that can accept a output file (.gpx is looking the most widely used format), both for iOS and Andriod (phew) is what we need. How close we get to that is another matter, although it's looking encouraging with an app called OMSand for the Andriod, but need to spend some more time on this.

Thinking we can use the Waze app as a simple 'where are people at' type app as it can show you where your friends are while they have the app running on their phones - that's right, you'll  have to live with me being defined as a friend for this to work ;)

Anyway, comment with any thoughts you have around all this, will update when I get round to looking at the different options in more detail.

  1. Hey Marek - sounds promising - looking forward to hearing more as this could be a useful app and save on printing costs!
    Not getting lost would be quite useful!!
    Well done & keep up the good work.
