Do most rented cars now come with built-in GPS?
I presume that GPS must be standard in the US and along the route.
How about the dead ends on Route 66?
Thanks in advance.

We had a mid range Cruize from Avis, that did not have GPS.
Don't pay to rent one, I brought a GPS with USA Maps off eBay for $70 before I left and resold it for the same on my return.

GPS is good to have to know you are going in the right direction, I would not have done without it but you cannot really follow Route 66 on it.

Plan out your route using EZ66 Guide and Google Maps.
The maps on this site are a great help too

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
