    Are there GPS waypoints for the Primitivo?

    Do any of you know if there are downloadable GPS waypoints for the Primitivo? I will be hiking next May (my first Camino!) over 14 days from Oviedo. I am hoping to use GPS as a backup in case the routing is not clear. Any help will be greatly appreciated... Tim

    Route tracking app (iPhone iOS)

    Hi, I did Camino in 2012 so last year when one of my colleagues was walking it, it was great to see his progress on the big TV at work. He did it by sending his location via Yo app to his friend who manually added his position everyday to Google maps. I tried to find a solution to do it more...

    Pamplona to Santiago in just ONE day - no blisters!

    Had a lazy day today having spent most of yesterday afternoon in the loft (leaking pipe three days before the Camino - seriously?) and decided to chop up the .gpx file I have into the different stages each one starting at the place we're staying in rather than city or town centres. Couldn't...

    Map Ideas and/or downloads

    Hi All, I begin my walk on April 8th. Thus far the only maps I've seen consist of on-line "where to find restaurants, albergues, pharmacias, etc."; all of no interest to me. Then there's The Guide book which has a map so tiny even with my reading glasses it is difficult. Here's my...

    My load of electronics

    So SYates asked on another post that I describe the heavy pile of electronics that go into my pack. Here goes. I am a low tech person, and somewhat surprisingly, that has gotten me in a lot of trouble in terms of weight in my pack on the camino. I have always carried a camera, and have...

    Any one tried the app: Camino Guide Offline

    This app was announced in March by Tony Andr. But I cannot find any indication that anyone has used it. My very good friend is starting the Camino on September 10 and I would like to put this app on the smartphone if it is good. Does anyone know anything about it? It is called Camino Guide...
