Brilliant! Thank you so much. I think it might have been you, Charl, who put me on to Galileo. I had to delete the app and maps to save space on my old phone. And I was just thinking the other day that I needed to put it back on and learn a bit more about gps. And here you are again! Thank you so much. I just bought pocket earth for a walk in the UK in May.

Glad you found the post useful! And yes I'm a big fan of Galileo but think will switch now.

I've just completed a blog entry comparing Galileo Pro and Pocket Earth, for those wondering about taking a GPS app with on Camino. Here's the link to the story.
I am so grateful for your posting!
I bought Pocket Earth and I was completely baffled when trying to transfer my route on it :rolleyes::oops:
Thank you.
