    Affordable "virtual Camino" app with Street View?

    I know that this is a perennial topic, but technology changes and some of the threads of the past no longer have current information. My question: Is there a reasonably priced way to do a "virtual Camino" where I record pedometer steps from my walks at home and can see my Camino progress on...

    Via de la Plata Downloadable Maps to Print

    Hi, does anyone know where I can download detailed maps of each day on the Via de la Plata, and which I can print out at home? I like to write notes on the maps, and at the end of each day I write up my journal on the back. I am not looking for an app. Many thanks.

    Shifting from Garmin GPS to phone — step 1

    For about 6 years, I have used a hand held Garmin Dakota GPS device. After a disastrous first year and a rocky second year, I have learned to download wikiloc GPS tracks onto my computer and from there, to transfer them to the GPS. I am comfortable with this method, but have heard from many...

    Helping Albertagirl with Maps!

    NOTE From Mod — You may have seen @AJ’s thread on planning the Camino Levante. A number of issues involving, google maps, facebook, etc have come up. I thought that it would be more helpful to @Albertagirl if we had one dedicated thread where she could work through these issues and...

    Are these all the Spanish and Portuguese Caminos?

    I made this map earlier in the year and will be updating it in 2021. I tried to include all known Caminos but I suspect there might be a couple that slipped through the net?? Would really appreciate any experts out there who may know of other routes. Thanks.

    I can't find a post

    A couple of weeks ago (?) someone posted about a splendid map showing all the camino routes in western Europe punctuated by stages. Priced I seem to remember at 28 euros. Can anyone direct me to this?

    Images from Brierley Camino Frances Handbook.

    A few years ago there was a resource here that showed the towns of the route, image of the height profile, bridges, the facilities in each town, etc. I can't seem to find the resource any more. Is there anyone who knows where I can get a copy of those pages/images? I was dumb enough to leave...

    How to walk a virtual camino in my local area and sync with Camino?

    Hello, can you please recommend the best way how to do a virtual walk (actually walking) of the Camino? I would love some inspiration to get out walking with my Mom in our local area. It would be great if we can pretend that we are walking the Camino. I did the real thing many years ago, and...

    Peter Robins

    When we were looking for information about the various routes from The Netherlands to Santiago some 5 years ago, we found the information by Peter Robbins very helpfull and comprehensive (as far as mapped routes concerned). And then we had to shelve our plans for health reasons. as John Lennon...

    You CAN walk a virtual Camino in Google Earth!

    First: Unfortunately, threads on this huge forum will sink down rather quickly. I will now, in these times, bump up a thread that was posted 8 years ago by another member of this forum. The reason: We will not be able to walk this year, obviously. But we CAN go virtual! For oldtimers it can be...

    Please help OzAnnie with GPS!

    Hi, everyone, I don't know if you have been following OzAnnie's decision to skip Italy and go walk in Spain, but she is now in Toledo ready to walk the Levante to Zamora. She posts a GPS question on that thread, and I am not able to help. I know there are some forum angels when it comes to...

    Wikiloc article

    For anyone interested in learning a bit about the background of Wikiloc, here's an article that appeared in the Olive Press today. Although the headline writer gushed a bit with his use of 'revolutionized', it was interesting to read that Wikiloc is a Spanish app, started in Girona by Jordi...

    2020 GPS APPs

    "Pocket Earth" APP is said to be excellent and with extensive data. Unfortunately it is only available for iPhone/Apple. Does anyone know if an equally good one is available for Android Cell/Mobile phones? I commence CF on 20 April from SJPdP.

    And my true love gave to me...

    He must have read my mind to know how much I loved the idea of having this map hanging in our home, and then he made it happen! Until I can get back on the camino, this will give me sweet dreams of the miles to go before I sleep....

    Elevation Tracking

    I have been keeping an eye on different apps, seeing what I would like to use next spring when I walk the CF. I have a fitbit, so have used that app for a while. I have also checked out mapmywalk, and only slightly browsed polarsteps and walkmeter. With fb it's just flights of stairs....I'd...
