I see some specific questions about maps that show Portuguese coastal route and how to acess, but no definitive answer that I can find. We just finished first leg because we had directions from our hotel finding company that were very bad. Is there an easily accessible way to view the route on a google or apple map overlay?
Do I need to buy a printed map to make sure we dont lose our way. We pu on an extra 2 miles today and it was a little long
Thanks.

I used the Buen Camino app. You can download its content and use the maps offline. It shows the locations of albergues and other accommodations, and gives information on the route and alternatives.

I have just walked it without a book. The only times I needed to refer to an app were for choosing between the Costa / littoral / central or for albergues, but the signage was completely clear throughout, even the options to walk on slightly other paths further in. Buen camino
