nice one! i've been using satellite images in google maps to plot routes along tracks that don't show in maps but drawing the track and converting from kml is a pain in the arse. this looks like the trick!

what are the limitations you've found with the tracks so far?

Hi B1

the limitations for Australia is the lack of depth in the ozzie maps,especially secondary and third roads,but having said that I have only looked in my home area of cairns and surrounds
But for over here and Europe its great
i tried ridinggps but couldnt get it to work like bike route toaster.

its like Viamichelin which has 23 point limits,,bike route toaster has no restrictions on the number points
