        For iPhone and iPad users, check out the free Track My Tour app and website. You start a route and through the app, add updates as you travel. It grabs your GPS location from your device and displays it. It posts your comments and photos on an interactive map. Check out this tour of the Great Lakes. It's free, though there is an upgraded version that lets you have some extra features.
        Check My Tour is a similar app, geared towards cyclists and motorcycle trips. It works with regular road trips to. It's for Apple devices, but also Android smartphones.
        Then there's My Trip Journal, this allows you to set up your own travel blog website. It maps your routes and lets you write reports and updates. You'll have a travel journal that can be viewed by all you share it with.
