Route 66 GPS Tour

     Route 66 GPS Turn By Turn Attractions GuideEveryone has a wish list of roads and trips they have to take at some point in their lives. Route 66 is somewhere on that list for most people. The ability to use a multilingual GPS system to navigate Route 66 has been the dream of Route 66 enthusiasts and tour operators for years. Our GPS unlocks Route 66 and allows anyone to drive the road like a professional tour guide. Travelers can rent a Garmin™ Zumo 660 and mount it to their car or motorycle and drive Route 66 east bound or west bound. The "secret" knowledge held by tour companies of "where to go" has been revealed. The Route 66 GPS Turn By Turn Attractions Guide includes commentary that is written in English and French which allows users to switch their Garmin™ GPS language settings and conveniently read the commentary in their native language.

The Route 66 GPS Turn By Turn Attractions Guide includes:

  • Automatic audible and visual alerts
  • Turn By Turn directions for all 8 states in both directions including Santa Fe alternate
  • Historically accurate descriptions and photos of hundreds of locations along Route 66
  • Over 950 roadside attractions at your fingertips
  • Accurately locate the most sought after attractions using GPS
  • Commentary natively written in English and French
  • Over 36 audible languages supported direct from Garmin

     How It Works - The Route 66 GPS Turn By Turn Attractions Guide is the most sophisticated system on the market. With over a year of R&D and seven (7) full seasons of "real world" use, we were finally able to eliminate the endless guide books and literature that has been a requirement for any Route 66 traveler. We knew that when we created a commercial GPS tool for Route 66 we would change the way travelers navigate the road. Does it work? Yes, within the first two years of deployment it was being used by most tour companies to lead their own tours. We are providing GPS services to tour booking agencies worldwide. All you have to do is drive and the GPS automatically calls out the roads and attractions for you. We wanted to bring the road to everyone and eliminate the costs of having a personal tour guide. It's here and it works! Watch the video

     We know you've waited a long time to drive Route 66 and we expect to deliver the experience of a lifetime. River Pilot Tours is based in the U.S. When other tour operators are in their home country in the off season, we're here exploring the road, maintaining relationships and researching every bit of R66.

We really like Route 66 and that passion and knowledge for the road comes through.
