The Marengo GPS Route Planner

I recently built a Javascript application, based around Google Maps, which enables a user to plot a cycle route online, and then upload it to their GPS unit to allow them to be directed en route. I designed a 72-mile route on it when I first built it, and then rode it. I wasn’t familiar with the route, but at each junction the GPS told me which way to turn. Fantastic. No stopping to consult the map, just a good training ride.

You can see my reasons for building it here:

The actual application is here:

Feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive. I’ll be using this blog to update you on any updates, and other comments related to it. If you are a user of the application, consider susbscribing to this site’s RSS feed. And feel free to post comments!
