Is there a GPS system for driving Route 66 ONLY? I have an old Android phone, an old iPad and a Navigation system on my Toyota Camry.

HarveyC,

I have downloaded 'River Pilot" Route 66 Attractions with Ready2Go Tours.  I know this is available for TomTom and Garmin, but not sure about other GPS systems.

It supposedly has turn by turn directions plus an attraction guide.

I haven't used this as yet as we are starting our USA and Route 66 trip next Friday.  I plan to use this in conjunction with the EZ66 guide and maps.

Below is a couple of links for you to check out.

The problem with most GPS downloads is that they don't recognize large parts of the old road. Many sections of the route have been renamed, with many called I-40 business loop or simply Main Street. The best way to see the most of the old road is to do a little homework, and rely on Jerry McClanahan book 'EZ Guide Route 66". And remember, getting lost is just another adventure on Route 66.

HarveyC,
Just thought I would give you an update on the river pilot GPS navigation.
We have just finished day3 on the road using the navigation plus the EZ Guide Route 66 and so far it has been spot on. The attraction alert that comes with it has been working really well and starts beeping before you come to it so you can be on the lookout.

Thanks and yes, getting lost is indeed part of the fun.

After your post, Jen chimed in and I guess this, GPS for Route 66 is working pretty good so far. Can you see her post?

Thanks again. Haven't bought a Garmin yet. I have a Navigation Sysyem on my Camry and I'm going to see if there is some way to make River Pilot work on my Car's navigation system. Contacting River pilot then Toyota.

Have fun. Kiss a lizard.

The link in the second post above leads to a dead end.  This one works:   https://www.riverspilot.com/Route-66-GPS-Attractions-Guide-p101
