    Hello,

    I plan cycle journeys on a website. They routes usually use fragmented cycle paths and LOTS of turns, way too many to remember, but the website lets me download the route as a GPX file. So...

    I'm looking for an app that will import GPX files and then do turn by turn navigation on the route.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Paul :)

    Not a turn by turn navigation, but controlled routing ... if this would be good enough for you, you should have a look at ViewRanger.
    I use this app with topo maps for hiking.

    I need to do the same thing but for motorcycle touring. I'd like to have turn-by-turn nav through my phone's headphones.

    I found mention of OSMAnd on another forum and have installed it on my Motorola Razr. I imported a .gpx file that I'd built in MS Mappoint. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks as though it might work.
