I plan a bicycle trip over Europe. Most likely I will follow one of the EuroVelo routes, but I might change my plans during the trip. So I would need to take too many paper maps.

Can you recommend any of the following:

  • some reliable online map (Google Maps are not good enough), or
  • Android app with GPS and reliable bicycle maps
  • GPS device, that would serve well for cycling

Also that would need to cover most of Europe, or at least the European Union part of it.

My question is about using GPS navi or online maps for cycling (while other question is about car navigation) – Tschareck Aug 23 '13 at 14:03
So what is the difference for you? If it's about maps that contain bicycle maps, did you even try to check those in the answers of the duplicate question? – Vince Aug 23 '13 at 14:47
I take it there's no EuroVelo apps then? :/ – Mark Mayo Aug 25 '13 at 7:06

Open Cycle Map provides a good coverage of Europe.

On the GPS section, you can find a device recommendation suited for cycling, as well as how to put Open Street Maps on it.
