All our bike tours include a free mobile phone application with GPS tracks.  Our free phone application works for both IOS and Android phones.  It has the ability to work off-line, which is important if you want to save your data minutes and if you are venturing into areas with poor cell coverage.  Our GPS tracks come with points of interest (POI) that show the locks of the Canal Du Midi, drinking fountains, restaurants, and more.
