Gear Talk / Re: ACA & Smartphones

Great conversation and debate about the use of smart phones while on tour. The gear section of the forums are a great place for these types of conversations. If multiple threads on the topic keep coming up, we can definitely add an additional board for tech type conversations. Currently, most of these discussions takes place on the GPS board, but we can see how things develop and create a new board if necessary.

In the meantime, here is a recent article from the CTC about touring with a smart phone instead of paper maps in France.

I-90 isn't ridable for cyclists.
I-90 is not desirable riding for most people, but it is legal as far as I know. Am I missing something?

http://bikeovernights.org is also another Adventure Cycling Association site worth checking out if you have not already.
Nope, never seen that one either. Looks very cool!
Why do you people hide these things so well???
We promoted both of these sites when they were launched on the Adventure Cycling blog and the Bike Bits e-newsletter. There are also links on the Adventure Cycling website homepage to both resources on the right hand side. In the future I'll try to post new items like these in the forums as well.

I'm not an iPhone user, so I can't provide a list of apps, but Track My Tour seems like a great app for bicycle travel and being able to show friends and family where your at.

This one is very commonly used by touring cyclists:

I second the spot tracker. The Great Divide racers have been using these for a couple of years and it seems to be proven and work well. Have a great trip!
