    I'm at the point of buying a Zumo or a waterproof android phone.

    What puts me off the android phone, is so far I didn't see an app that routes via adventurous roads.

    I've also not tried this personally with the Garmin, so don't know if it's a non issue... But it would be cool to have the freedom to put in a 6 hour route with just one endpoint and let the software pick the best roads when I don't have time to draw a route.

    Thoughts?

    Kurviger may do what you want.

    So what is the verdict on Kurviger? How about some reports?

    I just downloaded it and started farting around a little.

    Seems pretty decent if you're just looking to avoid boring roads.

    One thing I wish it had was a "favor dirt" button.
