  • Navigation system

    Just looking to get some input on what you guys are using? Is there a system that you can enter the turn by turn from HR directions? Sure would be nice in the middle of the night to follow.

    Thanks , Dusty

    Re: Navigation system

    I don't navigate...but my son did quite well by using a large paper map, and then using google maps on his phone to carefully go through the whole route.

    Maybe you could practice on some of the old directions, on whatever system you are planning to use? Here's one sample, I expect you could find a lot more if you took the effort to find them.

      We are looking for something also. We missed a few turns and my 70yr old father did very well considering he isn't the best with electronics.

        This has come up in the Power Tour section and only a few have been successful, myself not being one of them.

        I have done the same as mentioned, a large print map and Map app on my cell phone. DW 16 I forgot the atlas and bought an Ohio map at a gas station, then promptly left it laying on the roof of the car as we drove away. Hopefully another DW'r picked it up and used it!

          Nothing will help you when the directions are wrong or the roads on the directions are closed.

            there's one thing that will help you....a good sense of humor!

            yeah, we lucked out and figured out the closed road somehow, and the directions being wrong, well, we just live with it and do the best we can.

                We didn't. Both us and the Aussie Chevelle ended up on a back road that a horse would have had trouble with. A state trooper sent us down it, I think she was messing with us. Harry thought it was great, we did not lol.

                  With no co pilot it was tough navigating through Ohio. I've got a daily reminder of the detour from Monday night ended up on a dead end road trying to turn around and this happened trailer right into the side of the quarter.

                    Re: Navigation system

                    We just used the directions they gave us and our phones.

                    I had my GPS in the car for MPH and odometer. We would get on a road and know that in say 24 miles we had to start looming for the next turn.

                      Back road on day one, Trooper gave us 3 options but the map did not say what type of road it was.

                          Thought about picking up a hitchhiker then remembered what happens in two lane black top when the GTO guy picks one up. Lol
