Trip Planning: Mapping app

This is an extremely easy to use online program for mapping a route with waypoints or tracks. It's dead easy to plot your proposed route here, then export to your GPS... as a GPX file. Scroll in so it's easy to see where you want to make a waypoint, then double click. A waypoint will be made. Click save every time you make a waypoint.

I used to painstakingly use Google Earth then transfer each waypoint over. This is so much easier... scroll it to pinpoint where you want a WP, scroll back out to make sure where you want the next one, scroll back in to put it exactly where you want... repeat.
