I really, REALLY like this Android mapping software:
It gives you access to both free and pay-to-use topo maps and satellite imagery, and is very flexible with adding tracks and waypoints (including directly from your computer). I have downloaded both free topo maps and imagery to my phone and tablet (very easy), and the detail you can achieve far, far exceeds any handheld GPS on the market.
I get a pop up to enter a verification code below when posting. Where do I get the code and on my ipad I can't find the "below" to enter a code.

Sorry, I should have answered sooner. The captcha is just required on your first couple of posts. We do everything we can to keep the content on the forums related to bicycle travel and this is one the many measure in place to keep the endless stream of spam away from the site.Do you have to go through a verification process with every post?
Actually the site did force me to verify (via letters and numbers) the first few times I posted here (and I was properly logged in). It was weird but that has fortunately stopped. So we can kill this thread, .
I have an Ortlieb handlebar bag with their padded camera insert. Works great. You can't put a long lens on the body. , though.I second the handlebar bag approach. If it is not easily accessible I find that I won't use it as much as I should. I find that having it right in front on the handlebar bag helps.
I just finished 500 miles of testing the Northern Tier Route for AC. I used the Garmin 800 and the Garmin Oregon 650. The 800 worked flawlessly, however the 650 failed to give turn by turn directions and seldom knew what roads we were on. In fairness, I only had the 650 for a couple of days before departing on the trip so it could be a simple case of "operator error" but I don't think so. Anyone ever use an Oregon 650 for bicycle navigation?
I have to agree with Indyfabz here. It's not that hard to find the forums, and I have them on my favorites so they open right up there. Maybe it's not designed as well as could be, but modern technology seems to often not comply with my "best wishes/case" scenario. Some of the previous posts seem to come from an anger a little out of proportion to the level of the problem, almost like the ACA folks are purposely trying to frustrate us users. I don't think there is any such malicious intent. I have met many of the staffers on a ride and in the office and appreciate their work, friendliness and commitment to the advancement of bike travel. So, fix this little problem, keep up the good work, and move on.
Disclosure: I do not work for ACA, nor do I have any relatives who do. I do, however, often ride in an ACA jersey, which I like for its visibility, durability, and fit. I bought it at the ACA office in Missoula on the end of Ride Montana in 2009, where I was invited in and given a nice tour of the facilities and met some of the staff there. I guess I therefore do consider them to be friends, although I'm sure none of them remember me!
I agree. It should be in a prominent, obvious location.The validation you mentioned is only required until your post count passes a certain threshold. This helps slow the 1000's of daily attempts to post spam messages to the forum.
On another note, I was already signed in and I went to respond to this thread and I was required to re-sign in before I posted. Not a big deal but another irritation that puts a question mark over my head as to why?
