Reporting back that after another 30 minutes with Furkot, I REALLY like Smile

It shows me "points of interest" along my route, as well as listing food/sleep options. Very convenient!

I played with it a bit too.  It has a LOT going for it, including 'motorcycling routes'!
But it's not perfect.   The points of interest are apparently crowd sourced.  I saw a LOT of them labeled "test".  Others were; 'bobs deck', stop, couch, view...   I didn't see how to edit or report them (but didn't really try).   I'll spend some time on it this winter.

Yeah, the "Points of Interest" were a disappointment to me, too. Many of the ones I clicked on had a link to a Foursquare site that then had no additional information. But that was in Romania - maybe it's different in more popular regions?

I look on various sites for interesting places to see, motorcycle sites for roads to ride, National  and State Parks and National Forests for info on camping. I have found that in campsites and  parks  the people in general are great and are doing the same  thing I am.  And they can  give super recommendations on things to do/see that I might not know about. Many people I  have met I connected with on Facebook and we exchange travel info and pics.
