Ride this iconic route, often called, “The Main Street of America,” made famous in popular songs, literature, television and movies. ‘Route 66,’ became a reality as a highway in 1926 connecting Chicago and Los Angeles. Many buildings, signage, and businesses can still be seen along this route.

Digital data should be easier to maintain


Reviewed By: Nuno Gonçalves on 12/31/17

I really wish corrections would be implemented in digital data as fast as possible. It should be easier. And there is information that you don't get like, you need to pay to cross petrified wood park. Road conditions. That you might get in the paper maps or maybe not even there. So it is a good route to follow if nothing has changed. /////////////// Response from Adventure Cycling: We are still working out the process for how often the digital data files will be republished. Theoretically, it should be easy to make changes and republish these digital files more often than the paper maps. In reality, there are over 100 (and growing) files to keep updated while still maintaining the paper maps and our other tasks. At this time, if we become aware of a safety issue on a route or of a mandatory detour (such as the mudslides on the California coast) we will update the files and republish them.

Not worth purchasing

I had high hopes for this app before we left on our 2700 mile Route 66 adventure. We completed the ride in 53 days and rarely used the app. It was difficult to understand in the first place. I even uploaded another app called "Easy Tracker" to help but to no avail. We relied on the paper maps almost exclusively.
