    Any SA travelers willing to share their POI (point of interest) waypoints or track collections? I'd especially like waypoints for hotels with secure bike parking, recommended places to eat and gas in isolated areas i.e., salt flats in Bolivia or interesting side trips. Actually anything would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm planning a moto trip to SA this winter. I've given up on trying to find any commercial GPS maps or waypoints. I may get Smelly Bobs maps but I'm more interested in POI waypoints mentioned above.

    I did find some good POI waypoints and tracks by poking around on HU and AdvRider forums (thanks to Simon and Lisa 2ride the World, and a post on the Salt Flats and Costa Rica). Anyway I would appreciate it if any one has any tracks or way points for Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile or Argentina.

    I'll share mine.. currently riding to Ushuaia and back. I do my planning/research in google maps:

    https://maps.google.com/maps/user?uid=202761294081469316321&hl=en&ptab=2

    The above link is a google map for each country in Central/South America. You can download the KML and import it into Garmin Basecamp or whatever.

    I'm also in the process of adding a section to my blog about recommended lodging. I have a ton of places I've written down and recommend.. just need to add them to my site:
