Is there a way (app?) to map a multi-day journey with a specific chosen route using say Google Maps and then transfer the route with spoken instructions and live mapping to a device, such as iPhone or TomTom?

You can create routes in the Tom Tom computer program.

Yes, I've played it with the tomtom route planner but it is hard work compared to Google Maps and doesn't allow route dragging like Google Maps. Or am I missing something?

After creating your Google Maps route, click the little chain icon just under the search field, then copy the URL text in the first field there, then go to http://www.houghi.org/tomtom/index.php, paste it in and hit submit.

This turns your G route into an ITN file which I assume TomTom can read.

Try Sygic.com   we partner with them....to develop similar applications for industry  such as garbage truck routes and street sweeper routes.  they may have something off the shelf.

They have an app you can buy for iphone not sure how far it goes though to do exactly what you need.

Thanks - it describes what i'm trying to do but I don't know how to get the route into the TomTom device.  User is the limiting factor here no doubt.  :doh:

Edit:  I'll ask my IT guy to see if he can do it.  :thumbsup:

Ta.  Slick looking interface on the app but I don't think it gives me what I need i.e., transferring a Google Maps route to a TomTom.  I'll probably buy it anyway and play with it.

It seems to relate to a single destination not 50 or more waypoints.




or this

Thanks. Opening directories is beyond me I'm afraid but I'll ask my IT guy.

The sooner Google Maps is running car satnavs the better.
