    Hi all,

    Here is my situation. I am working on a project for my company to (finally) get GPS guidance for drivers on planned cyclical routes/journeys (i.e. always the same journey every year).

    Most of the solutions I have seen are good for A to B mapping but not so hot on planned routes (i.e. either pre-mapped or simply recording a route while it is being driven and then play-back).

    A perfect solution would also map 'service areas' on a journey.

    Does anyone know of a SATNAV or Android tablet app that could do this??

    Many thanks

    Yes, Even basic Garmin Nuvi's like my Nuvi56LM can accept a GPX file that contains a route, the route can be generated on a computer mapping program such as Basecamp (free from Garmin) and then downloaded to the sat-nav. or a track that that is stored on the sat-nav from a previous trip can be uploaded to basecamp, edited if necessary and then sent back to the sat-nav as a new 'Trip'
