    GPS Questions yet again

    I am loading the Olvidado tracks for my upcoming walk, and I always try to compare what's out there. Well, as I was looking for tracks for the new mountain stage from Boñar to Vegacervera, I saw two that looked pretty identical. One was posted by Ender, one by Ray y Rosa, but to me they look...

    GPS meltdown

    I thought I would start a new thread, though this is not my first GPS meltdown thread. I was on the phone with Garmin support for one hour and ten minutes and my problem is not solved.

    GPS on Camino Frances

    Is there an easy, practical way to determine where you are on the Camino? I’m mostly interested in being better able to make a decision when I come up on signs pointed in 2 directions.

    Field-tested app reviews: an in-depth round-up

    There are so many Camino apps available now but I’ve not read any round-ups, so I’ve put my own one together which will hopefully be of use to pilgrims.

    Ultimate track for Borrenes-Orellán-Las Médulas

    Hola amigos! finally I got to compile the track that I followed on my first stage of this stunning Camino.

    Any experts in using wikiloc.com?

    I have used wikiloc.com a lot since I got my GPS for the Camino Olvidado several years ago. I am by no means an expert, but I have been able to find my way around the site, download tracks, etc. But one thing I cannot figure out is how to search within a certain user's list of files. For...
