[Ads-l] triptych

The AAA website still allows you to create your own 'Triptik', giving a route map which is more versatile than the ones created by Google and Bing.



But I doubt it would be helpful to print it out, and I was unsucessful getting it onto my iPhone.



The built-in GPS in our car is still our 'triptik' of choice, but it was helpful in planning a long road trip, since it allowed time estimates for part of day-long legs.

It=E2=80=99s not the reliable wireless that=E2=80=99s crucial.  There =
was a long interim period in which I used Mapquest to print out my own =
turn-by-turn maps and stapled them together to form a DIY triptik (or =
triptych).  But I take your point.  Still, I wonder how many Triptiks =
