Could be a great ride!

You should have no problems doing the conversion using ITN Converter. If you do, maybe I can help.

Hi there,

I use Tyre and I'm quite content. It's a dutch program, but it allows you to plan your routes on google maps.
The downside is that you do need an internet connection, so not that conveniënt when on the road, but quite nice to do some preperation.
Tyre has become a commercial company, but there still is a freeware edition.
Next to the planning of a route, it do create waypoints on my way, there for i use Tripmaster. Simply start it when you start and download it into tyre when you're done for the day.

Altough the freeware version of tyre is quite nice I'm concidering to buy it for a little more functionality.
Just a hint ;)

ow by the way, it also converts your route for the garmin as well

cb400f screwed with this post 07-10-2012 at 12:39 AM Reason: read the whole threat before you post

Go to Google maps

Click Get Directions
Plan your route
Click the Blue Get Directions Box
Go to bottom of directions list and click Save to my maps
Click the dropdown box and click create new map
Click Save
You will see KML next to a small blue box , click and save to desktop
or other file.

Once you have a .kml file you need find a program to convert this so
your sat nav can read it , i use Tyre to Travel , its free to download
an does a good job.

Just import your route planning from the .kml file and you can save it
direct to your Tom Tom Rider

Thumb Routes for TomTom / Convertion

Tyre and TomTom are an excellent duo. On the latest Tom Tom Rider 5, Tyre is integrated. Biggest plus: it also enables the Tom Tom Rider to make tracklogs, something which was not possible in the Tom Tom Urban Rider.

The Rider 5 comes also with unlimited free map updates.

On the older tomtom rider (or even the TomTom Go and One) you can convert ANY Garmin based *.gdb route without the lost of route points by using a device from the Dutch Transalpclub called 'Hermanizer':

In my modest opinion, the best SatNav you can get on a motorcycle. I love the 'Plan Winding Route' option. Its BRILLIANT!
