software or website to plan your routes

What software or website do you use to plan your routes ? Google (terrain) maps used to allow an easy kml export to Garmin horrible Basecamp software on Mac (BMW Motorrad navigator V). BMW Motorrad's community route planning website is useless and I don't want to use Tyre (Mac user). help ?

(we usually plan 30 days trips on small roads)

Thanks dominato - I've been wondering the same thing. I'm pretty good with computers (I build them for fun) and I'm having a hell of a time getting basecamp to behave and play nice. I'm glad to see alternatives exist.

Thank you Dominatio and Gspeed, finally something that works !

Both look interesting ! I have managed to import the tracks, routes and waypoints and .gpx files into basecamp and my BMW Motorrad Nav V

I noticed mappite prefers Chrome to Safari when it comes to creating and naming the downloaded files....

Motogoloco is really nice too and makes it easy to download the files. I also tried the send to sat nave option but it kind of makes basecamp want me to update the Satnav's OS software although it is up to date... I will investigate more on that.

I will test it a few days and get back to this thread.

German interface, allowing route selection similar to google with various map display options. Exports to GPX e.g. for Garmin:
www.motoplaner.de

(The OP is in Switzerland and may speak German.)
