Wi-Fi on the road and at your camp site!

I will be heading to Sedona, Arizona for a few days, so this neat little service, which uses the Google Maps API, might just come in handy.

Once you zoom in on your area of interest, you can click a starting point and and ending point and it will place markers on the map showing the location of truck stops, camp sites and other RV-friendly locations offering Wi-Fi networking along your route.

I can easily imagine pulling in for a gas/coffee/restroom break and filling up on email, as well.

This is a great idea and only one example of the great services being built on top of Google Maps.

WiFi spots at campgrounds and truckstops
