    route plotter for GPS

    Is there anyway to use the GPS navagation for a pre plotted trip? I can do point to point. but what if i want to chose my own route. backroads, etc etc into the route. is there any way to do that? I'd still like to use the navagator that way I can have phone in pocket, earbud under helmet and blast the twisties on my motorcycle. but in texas its hard to find twisties. So i need to pre plot my routes

    You can create a multi-point route in Google Maps (I don't know if you can do this in the app), then save the map using your google account, then access it in the Google Maps app. From here, you MIGHT be able to launch navigator to traverse this route.. I don't know if will support multi destinations though.. I know it will work for point to point this way.

    I've never found a way to get Google Maps Nav to do this. You can certainly view your maps as a layer in Google Maps but nav won't follow the route.

    Another GPS nav app (keep in mind that Google Maps Nav is just one app of many out there) might but I haven't specifically looked for such a feature.

    Depends on where you are. Texas is a big state. They're rare here in the Gulf Plains but plentiful in the Hill Country.
