Hello everybody!!

I've just joined this forum and am looking for some help with my planned trip next year, we are flying to LA and doing route 66 back to front as it were but I know some of route 66 is not on most sat-navs and I would like to do the authentic route were possible.

So I'm looking for any tips you guys might have to help us along the way

DWH--Some other members can fill you in on the sat-navs.  Since you are going next year, consider spending $19 or so on the EZ66 Guide (2nd Edtn) by Jerry McClanahan.  It's 200 pages of detailed background info and maps, available through Amazon and others.  With this, you wouldn't need a sat-nav (although some people prefer them).  You might also want to rent "The Grapes of Wrath" classic movie and/or read the John Steinbeck novel.

And on my site,, there are 1300 current road images and websites of the most-popular stops.  More than 80% of Route 66 can still be enjoyed, including stretches of original pavement.  And several scenes from the movie still exist.
