I have made gpx files from the first link Jason provided. The wine tour I started from RC hotel the others I started from a point that was closest to the hotel. On the waterfalls I added an extra waterfall at Taughannock Falls State Park. If you are that close you should go see it also.

This is my first time I have tried to post gpx files. Let me know if it worked. I used Garmin Base Camp with the routing set to fastest.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

I downloaded the routes and I'm trying a new nav system on my android phone this year. It's not free but the couple of times I've used it were really good.

www.myrouteapp.com
https://navigation.myrouteapp.com/en

It's made by the folks that made Tyre. You can custom make routes and import for navigation. It even tells you how far the next gas station is.

I'm hoping to eliminate the Garmin by using this. I paid for 3 years of navigation ($130) and 1 year of "gold" membership on the route maker ($35). Not terrible and it's an experiment to see how it really functions for me. I did one route on the fly a few weekends ago and it really was impressive.

I just downloaded the Waterfall route to my desktop and opened it with Basecamp and sent it to my Zumo 595 and everything looks fine to me.

For anyone looking for Dual Sport riding near the National there is a large section of the Mid Atlantic Backroad Discovery route just west of Williamsport. Starting near Jersey Shore, Pa.

Hey Jason,  Any chance my rally pack will have paper road maps?  Most years we get ones free from the host state.

So if you see my ridden states map you see a lot of white in the New England area.  Any chance you guys can make a route that would catch as many states up there as possible?  I had PA but nothing north or east of there.  It would be nice to hit as many as possible when we are in the area.
