WA8LMF  Roadtrip Tracker

(Close-Up Zoomable View on APRS.fi)

This view, formerly plotted on Google Maps, shows past-history "breadcrumb" tracks, and can be zoomed in and out

Since Google started demanding tens of thousands of dollars a month for serving maps, the operator of APRS.fi switched to OpenStreets.org (non-profit organization) as a map source.

The information is the same, but the appearance is not as nicely presented. Particularly, the highway route-number shields are no longer shown.  These used to distinguish between Interstate highways, older US-numbered highways, and state/local route numbers.

Unfortunately, since the map source is no longer Google Maps, the Street View option is also no longer available.
