If you've always wanted to follow voice cues on FANY, but don't own a fancy, schmancy GPS unit, now you can! If you have an old smart phone kicking around, down load the free Ride With GPS app, and then TaDah! The FANY Route files will include turn-by-turn voice direction, which is an upgraded feature of the free app.
Actually, you don't even need an old smart phone if you want to use your current one. One of Ride With GPS' strengths is that it barely sips battery life. (however, packing a spare battery might be prudent until you know how Ride With GPS affects your smart phone.)
Please carry a paper FANY cue sheet during the tour! Some dedicated GPS units do NOT speak turn-by-turn directions. If you don't turn your smart phone volume up you won't hear turn-by-turn cues. Some screens are difficult to read in the sunlight. So bring the paper just in case.
Also, the paper cue sheets include additional notes about where to eat, optional sightseeing detours, and some safety warnings. Please read each day's cue sheets prior to biking.
Road noises sometimes make it difficult to hear the turn-by-turn GPS directions. If you're planning to use earbuds, remember that NYS Bicycle Laws limits bicyclists to only one earbud while riding, to be sure that one ear is available to other sounds for safety. Makes sense!
