GPS mapping of Camino Ingles

Camino de Ingles (2015)
We are planning to do the Camino Ingles in 2015 and was wondering does anyone have a GPS mapping of the route that they could email me that would work on a GARMIN Etrex 20. I already have the guide that Johnnie Walker has written and it will be invaluable but thought it would be nice to have a back up as well.

Thanks in advance,

Rick and Michele

Well, quite honestly, if you have JW's guide, any GPS stuff is superfluous. The whole route is well marked and easy to follow, and is a very good camino. For goodness sake, if you can find your way to your own back door, then who needs all this hi-tech s****
Pilgrims of old, turn in your graves.
 
Get a spanish phone number with Airalo. eSim, so no physical SIM card. Easy to use app to add more funds if needed.
Thanks for the info. I am still debating the GPS. The route as JW states is clearly marked and to be honest I think getting a little lost may be good for us. There I have just decided no GPS.

Thanks again
 
Follow the yellow arrows. If there is no arrow, follow the fan of the shell on the markers. The rays point the correct direction. Always.
 
Come on, falcon, you didn't think you'd get away with sneaking that last categorical statement in there without someone jumping up and down and screaming did you? :) I didn't participate in the last exchange on this topic, but I did just want to point out that there is some disagreement with falcon on his claim that

"The rays (of the shell) point the correct direction. Always."

Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.

€60,-
I put my feet where my mouth was! After noting the possibility, I monitored the markers on the last 100 km of the other four caminos ending in Santiago. Without fail, the rays pointed the correct direction. I would point out that there are almost none of these markers on the Camino Frances, and I am talking only about Galicia.

Follow the rays on the Ingles, the subject of this thread, and I guarantee they will point you correctly!

Don't send me photos of distance markers, road signs, shells on buildings, etc. I know there are other markers, and I don't care about them... :evil:

I have to agree with falcon - IN GALICIA the rays of the shell do point in the direction of travel, though not necessarily in other provinces.
 
If I´m not mistaken the rays point the other way once you arrive to Galizia.

Buen Camino!

Should I presume that it is the central ray that points in the correct direction - its hardly possible that all of them can:rolleyes:
 
I have a GPS route from my walk there but in 2015 that might not be correct. Camino ingles was very well marked in most sections. It was only in Santiago the markings just vanished and in some junctions but there the guide came to rescue.

The markings vanish once you arrive to Santiago on some of the other Caminos as well.

Buen Camino!

Hi, I walked the route earlier this year and have my 5 stage gps mapped maps I can send you if required - done with the viewranger app. Send me a pm with email address and I can send them over! Simon.
