    We have a new page dedicated to routes so you can share your favourite cruise routes with everyone. It uses the site http://www.gpsies.com to create the route so please go there to learn how to create a route and then you can submit it to us so we can add it to the site.

    The following is an example route http://zroadster.org/routes/ (under the events menu option) so you can see how it looks. This system is compatible with most gps systems so you should be able to download them into your gps. There are apps for the various phones too but we haven’t investigated that far yet so please check it out and report back!

    I hope this feature is going to be useful for everyone and maybe we can build up a nice list of routes!

    I downloaded the iPhone app and, if it works it, seems like its very easy to record a new route on your phone as you go. Then just save it (need to create an account on gpsies.com) and then you can share it with everyone.

    We need to make it slicker but at the moment if you post in here the code (or pm me) I can add it in for you.

    If you view the route you have created, scroll to the bottom and either copy the full URL it provides or just the code (bit we need) which comes after the fileId= then I can get it added for you :)

    great stuff - that should be in the routes section. we'll split it down further into regions i think to make it easier to find them once we have a few more
