Map program/app to highlight ride routes?

I could probably do it with a road Atlas but was wondering if there's an easier option.

Back in the day I would map it out on Google, then type the turn by turn out, print, and put in my clear tank bag
Now I convert and load in the Garmin and let the hot Aussie gal tell me when to turn.. and listen to tunes in between

I'd have to look. It is a standard one that I got a waterproof case for. Has bluetooth, MP3 player and a SD slot for more files/music
Model 765 maybe?

Thought I had a better pic but you can kinda see it...

I planned on doing this with my phone, but I cant find any ear buds that will stay in place when I put my helmet on. (I wear nice, snug helmets. The pads will pull out almost anything from my ears.)

I use a helmet mounted speaker setup, wireless. Plenty of volume even with my ear plugs in.

Ear buds, I found these have very little except the cords sticking out and stay real well.

google "IEM diy mold kit" There are decently cheap kits so you can make a pair of In Ear Monitors out of any ear buds that fit your ears perfectly.

I use Microsoft Streets and Trips to create maps to load to my Garmin Nuvi 770.

It can't get much easier to make a route than with MS Streets & Trips.

I use these http://www.officedepot.com/a/product...ories-_-163354
They work awesome and stay in place since they are small. Also the foam fells much better and helps seal out background noise.
