Sometimes we run the same stage more than once. Its covenient for me to have the start of each stage waypointed, so that I can just do a GoTo if I get lost. I find it helpful to have the service waypointed as well.

Thankfully, Anders has thoughtfully incorporated the shortest distances already, so my GPS and the route sheets really havent conflicted at all. Just once on the way to the finish from the last stage. It was inthe dark, and my rollchart wasnt lit. I used th GPS to get me to hte finish line...

But here's the rub- It wasnt by the route sheet route, and my battery died. I ended up pushing hte bike the last half mile or so. Saw no other bikes becuase I wasnt on the route.

So its got its advantages and disadvantages.
