    Hey everyone, I did a search but couldnt find the answer to what I am looking for. I will be going a motorcycle trip with my dad and need a iPhone compatible GPS app that will fit my needs.
    • I would prefer it to not be internet based. We will be going on some remote routes and I dont thInk I'll always have a signal.
    • Turn-by-turn is a must (looking at 3.5" screen while riding is a bad idea).
    • MOST IMPORTANTLY: Since the trip will be site-seeing based, I am not looking for the quickest route. Instead, I want to pre-plan each route online (either through Google or anywhere else) and load them in to the GPS each day. I know how to make GPX files if any apps can simply go off of those.
    • It would be great if it would create a GPS log or something. I am going to make a book of the tip for my dad, and I'd like to include a map of the exact route we rode every day. If no turn-by-turn apps do this, do you know of any seprate apps that do?
    I'm not too worried about spending $, it'll be worth it for an app that does what I am looking for. I read baout the Garmin, TomTom and Navigon, but neither cleary stated whether custom routes can be loaded in to them.

    Thanks in advance.

    I am searching for the same thing to use on my bicycle. I want to lay out some route on a map before I leave and have my phone guide me by voice. I am rarely remote, so internet-based is fine for me.

    I want lay out custom routes, not typical GPS navigation routes, because I want to zig zag around and my starting point is my ending point.
