    Default Great riding app

    I went riding w friends and one turned me onto this sweet GPS for bikers. Its called Calimoto, and its not just California. Itll auto set the route through windy/scenic routes instead of normal GPSs that just take you the most direct way. You can tell it to generate a random round trip ride too if you just want to go somewhere. Share and see others rides in your area.

    That looks interesting. There is another one too that is very similar and also has some nice routes, user submitted, already included. I'll have to find it again. I had it downloaded but apparently deleted it at some point.

    Can this be used some way for the gps/info system in a 2018 Venture/Eluder?

    I wish I could say, but I just have a 2nd gen. Give it a shot, then let us know.

    I was thinking the same thing. You can use a USB drive
    I know the Venture GPS look for a folder called GPS. I have imported GPX files from google maps

    I checked the FAQ on the https://calimoto.com/en website and found this. I know what I will be looking at this weekend.

    Is it possible to import or export GPX files?



    Yes, you can export GPX files on our web site. You can export both planned and tracked rides.Exporting from the web site:1. Open the Trip planner here.2. On the right select 'My rides'3. Select the ride you want to export4. Click the 'export GPX' button5. Save the GPX file to your local computerImporting using the web site:1. Open the Trip planner here.2. Just underneath the 'My Favourites' is an up arrow, mousing over will reveal text 'Import GPX', click this button3. Find and upload the GPX file from your local computerYou can also open GPX files on your smartphone with calimoto. You can then convert it to a planned route and save it.

    Eat Sleep Ride is a great app. Have tried it for a month. It's a paid app, though.
