    Lots of free online resources – bikehike, wheresthepath, walkhighlands etc etc. All give access to OS mapping, route drawing & editing and give elevation/distance etc.

    I use (bought) Anquet mapping – who always seem to have some ‘special’ deal on.

    I use the viewranger website. Ridiculously easy to use.

    If I wanted to pre-plan a route to find out mileage/ elevation etc. and then to subsequently transfer to a Garmin – what’s the best software to do that? Garmin Connect or other?

    +1 for bikehike http://www.bikehike.co.uk/mapview.php
    Let’s you output to multiple different file formats including Garmin

    Just remember to toggle the ‘Follow Road (google map)’ when you’re plotting anything off road.

    I have all my routes saved in a dropbox folder which i share with my mates so they can open them in google earth or bikehike

    I just use the Garmin route creator. At Garmin Connect, click the ‘Plan’ tab, select ‘Course’, create a route, save it, then send to device. Very easy and no silly bugs.

    MapMyRide is popular too but the Garmin was tons easier for me.
