Where do we donate to buy THOSE guys a burger and beer for twisting your arm into releasing this app, anyway?

How to see what's cached?

Sorry if this is an old topic, but I couldn't find it in the vids or FAQ...

Is there a way I can see what areas i've cached, and at what zoom level, other than panning around in airplane mode? I want to load my 32 GB sd.

NICE! I recognize the tank bag (I have one), what tablet is that? Is it easy to use the touchscreen through the map window?

[QUOTE=craftycoder;20555565]My feeling is that Google has absolutely NAILED the road stuff with Google Navigator (and obviously Dual Sport Maps is a fabulous off road app ;). Even if you are an "iPhone guy" I think buying a cheap/used Android device just for your bike is a better use of money than buying a Garmin.

If it was you,which "cheap" Android device would you choose? Would I just be able to "light up" the phone and use the GPS portion and download apps without having to sign up for cell servi
ce like Verizon or ATT etc? Sorry, tech noob here.

If you are going to use your iPhone and do not want to incurr charges get an app like Navigon and download the maps offline. No data use. But it doesn't support route importing, it does do routing though (point to point). But you will pay about $50 or so for it.

The Nexus 7 for example you can download off line maps of the areas you are traveling too and use the GPS as is, no data needed. The nice thing about that is you can download a few maps, reach a wifi hot spot, download or update as needed and so on. Again, no data needed. Really depends if you own an iPhone already or not. If you do not own an iPhone and do not want a data plan, just get a Nexus 7, you get a good GPS built it, and with the Nexus, once you are in a wifi hot spot, you then have a full blown internet device for email, surfing, Hulu, etc. on a nice looking and good sized screen.

I'd go for a Nexus 7 32Gb with 3G but they only have the 16Gb wifi over here...

Yup, fandango tank bag; and the screen works perfectly through the plastic of the map sleeve. I cut out some dense foam and made a little house for the tablet to live in, notching out where the battery charger hookup is, and the power button on the side. I made it kinda thick on purpose, to 'push' the tablet against the plastic of the bag so the touchscreen would work.

And yeah, google nexus 7.

Can you upload gpx files and follow the routes with the google offline maps or do you need an app?


Odd grammar, words and spelling brought to you by my iPhone's autocorrect.
