I would like to ride down to Nashville this April. I do not want to buy a new GPS until I find one that does what I want. My GPS either takes me to the highway or if I choose alternate route its not the route that I would plan on Google maps.
A. Any simple way of printing out my directions with Google maps and also using my very basic GPS as a back up?
B. I want to travel down to all back roads and stay in State Parks in April. Anyone done this? (Ohio/Kentucky) http://goo.gl/maps/SmjlD
C. Might stay in a Hostel in Nashville...any advise on keeping my stuff safe in a big city (on the list of dangerous cities).
