Yeah, I still carry a printed map of my Max Square in the map pouch of my front bag.
Thing is, getting to Oku-Tama is over a two hour train ride, Chichibu is close to three hours. Getting to Saitama is only 90 minutes.
I always overlay my route onto Mapsme.com where I've also overlaid my Unexplored Tiles map. Putting my route on Mapsme give me a backup in case my Garmin fails and also allows me to see when I cross a tile border. I can't confirm it until I get home and do an update on VV, but usually it tracks pretty well (plus, I go a bit further past the tile border as insurance...having learned my lesson the hard way).are you guys checking in real time where and when you hit a new tile?
I was always biking blind and would have to upload from home and then check on veloviewer on the laptop.
Yes. As far as possible I like to plan the ride and ride the plan.are you guys checking in real time where and when you hit a new tile?
I always use Google My Maps on my Android phones to check against the tile borders. After each tiling ride I download a KML file and upload it to Google My Maps for this. I open the app on the map page while I have network access. My Maps is not available for iOS, but there are alternatives, as Mike explained.are you guys checking in real time where and when you hit a new tile?
What about a "Tiler" thread prefix?
@thomas: if @Karl - as threadstarter - agrees, I'd suggest renaming this thread to "VeloViewer tiling in Japan" - that way other folk could find it in a search and/or ignore it more readily.Given that the thread is more about all things tiling and less about ride offerings, sounds like a good idea.
