Twice walked from St Jean to Estella and once from Sarria to Santiago. Maybe someday I'll find the time to do the entire walk.
I've found the time. Just completed SJPP to Santiago. 25 Aug to 1st Oct, 2016.
And now the Portuguese from Lisbon.

The Confraternity of St James publish a two volumn guide to the Norte. I used the first of them this year but didn't need the second one as I continued on on the Primitivo.
If you'd like them, for free, PM me with contact details. This doesn't need to include your address. A PO for poste restante should get them to you

If I were you, I would hang on till either Dave or WisePilgrim come out with their guidebooks. For Dave, it will be a totally revamped edition of Northern Caminos. This book was expected to publish prior to this year's major walking season. I was hoping to use it, but it never came out. There must be some significant issues causing the delay. Wise Pilgrim is working on a new Norte guidebook, which Ivar's store has available for pre-order. Delivery expected in early October. He already has apps for many caminos, and he has paper guidebooks for both the Portugues and the Frances, so this will be his third.

Both guides are available from Ivar in fact: https://www.santiagodecompostela.me/collections/camino-del-norte-items

I have ordered the guides on Ivar's website, and while waiting for them, I have been using the Buen Camino app which has offline maps and downloaded info.

Hello Stephen, Thank you that is very kind. However, I have decided to buy the new Wise Pilgrim guide. Many thanks
