I just don't get it: cycle touring is supposed to be easy out of the way fun, so leave all your gadgets behind, look around you to enjoy the landscape, and try to engage with the locals. Got lost? - no probs, keep going until you find a signpost, then ignore it and take the best looking road - who knows what you might find?
Ah, touring: happy days.
Normally I might be partial to this view but most places are going to be closed. Moreover, I think gadgets can work for or against. Taking a camera can help you notice more about the environment.
