New toy...

Evening all,

I've just purchased a new GPS toy and wondered if anybody has routes from our Sunday rides, etc that I can get a copy of please.

Also, what websites do you use for mapping/converting, etc all info/opinions greatly received.

Memory map is good.

I have a full version of V5 I think if you want it.....about 30gb all in though. It has 1:25,000 and 1:50,000 of GB plus Sat pics. I dont really use it anymore, its on 7 DVDs if you want it. Worth around 250.

Its yours for a brew and a slice of cake.

Memory map is great for off-road, that said I don't really use my copy any more either!

For drawing routes out, I tend to use either:
http://www.bikehike.co.uk/mapview.php
http://www.elsewhere.org/journal/gmaptogpx/
Routes from GMap to GPX tend to work better for me on my Garmin, but BikeHike is more convenient.

For mapping my routes after a ride, I use Garmin Connect (you don't need to have a Garmin as you can manually upload exported GPX files from most GPSes):
http://connect.garmin.com/
with the G-Fix plugin (here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/fbeiifjiimghhaijicmdphhpockpbldc) for the Google Chrome browser, which switches the mapping from Bing to Google Maps. Bing maps and satellite photos are crappy in the UK.
