    Hey guys,

    So I am really keen on getting into enduro rally racing. I am from DE and there are a few local races that I might join this or next year, but I have zero experience driving with a roadbook. So instead of investing into a full sized RBK unit just yet, I was hoping to find an intermediate solution involving mobile apps.

    I really like "rallynavigator" as they let you snap your route to the local street grid. So basically, if the street exists on google maps (and most forest roads do in DE), you can snap your route to it.
    Unfortunately, I cannot export it as an .rbk file which is required by a different app -rabbit roadbook.

    So my question is: Do you know of any apps or free digital tools, that let you create .rbk files, and/or allow your to follow rally-roadbook-like instructions on your phone screen?

    If not, I will have to look into building my own unit out of some old plastic boxes, but lets try it this way first :)

    Thanks for your help!

    Cheers,
    Chimp
