Me me me me, I've got a gear question!

What's the name of the map software people have started using? The one that'll measure a route and plot a profile?

What else does it do?

I use Memory-map:

http://www.memory-map.co.uk/

You can plot routes, view profiles, view maps in 3d, overlay aerial views, all sorts - excellent piece of software.

Thanks, I'll take a look immediately!

Can it do bridal paths or just roads?

Is full OS 1:50,000 maps (and some 1:25,000). I wish it was all 1:25,000 but it is still really pretty good.

There is another package, called Anquet, that does pretty much exactly the same but a bit cheaper:

Yep, I'll second or third memory-map. It ain't cheap but then again you can get the equivalent of 1:50000 maps for the whole country. Even better you can download maos to your PDA, hook it up to a GPS receiver and get your location plotted while your driving/cycling/walking/whatever. Invaluable for showing just where you took a wrong turning and how to get back Very Happy

www.GPSU.co.uk

Used it for last 3 years and it's excellent. Especially if you have access to all the 1:50k OS tiles Rolling Eyes

Been using Tracklogs for a year. Software does everything I want it to and the support has been excellent on the odd occasion I've needed to use it. Haven't tried hooking it up to a GPS as I haven't got one Sad ( on my Christmas list though Laughing )

You can download a free trial from the tracklogs website:

Giantman's tip of the day :-

Don't worry about how far or where you've gone - concentrate more on what you are doing getting there. But then again, boys and their toys....
