What does everyone use to plan their trips? Can you generate cue sheets? I'm looking for some mapping software to keep track of where I've ridden, where I'm going and sometimes how to get there. I've looked at the DeLorme software, but I'm not sure if it does cue sheets. Thanks.

I use the DeLorme Topo USA 4.0 and it does cue sheets, elevation profiles, 3d and 2d maps. It's a pretty nice package for the price. If you're interested in seeing some of the maps I have a few on my site.

You got a nice setup....bent_spoke

I was curious if you could zoom into specific sections of a hill to get a more accurate indication of part that will be tough, so you understand more than just the average if needed. tks

about MS Streets and Trips and got some good responses. Hope that this helps.

it didn't answer all my questions. I did get some useful feedback from it, but didn't see many comments about generating cue sheets, except for the limitations of MS Streets & Trips. I'm looking for something that can generate cue sheets, and store and use information that I input. So far, the DeLorme software impresses in this area, but I haven't heard much about the USGS, or National Geographic stuff. Topo is a much appreciated bonus, though not a priority.

How did you get TopoUSA to make the cue sheets? I just purchased the software and it would be nice to annotate my routes in this fashion.
