Moto Go Loco Maps and Routing Generator

Found this free site the other day Motogoloco when looking for easier way to edit and upload routes, very easy to use to lay out routing online. Routing easily uploaded to your GPS or imported into BaseMapif you want to confuse things.....
Surprised to see it only listed in Vendors as it's a free site.

Thanks - that's a great little package. The direct export function is nice.

Garmin provides the "direct export to your GPS" link. It's called Garmin Communicator and Garmin will be discontinuing that service this year.

It's actually not Garmin's desire to stop support. Garmin Communicator is a browser "plug-in" and most browsers are ceasing support for "plug-ins" -- if they haven't already. I don't know if Garmin will rewrite Communicator to be an "Extension" but I doubt it.

Interesting info about the plugin...still one can download the route, import into Basecamp or a myraid of other programs and upload to your gps.. Still very very functional..

Yes, you really don't need BaseCamp. You just need to get your GPX file(s) into the \Garmin\GPX folder on the GPS. When the GPS is USB connected, most of Garmin's devices will show as a removable storage device and you can easily find the right folder to directly download to from any online or standalone application.

I download to my BMW Nav5 directly from Furkot.com via my browser.

That would be because the developer is promoting it.

From the looks of the site, they make money from promoting businesses via their website.
