This is the new 2023 5th edition of the turn-by-turn guidebook, driving in either direction with detailed sketch maps to show your route. This mentions some of the recommended places of interest along the route. This book is widely recognised as the essential guide for driving Route 66.
Jerry, the author and artist has a gallery in Oklahoma and loves meeting “roadies” and will happily sign your book.
This is a set of fold out maps, each covering one of the eight states which Route 66 travels through. They have a state map with directions and points of interest. This is not as comprehensive as the EZ66 guide, but are great for an overview of the route ahead, maybe as you’re having breakfast. For first time travellers we would recommend the EZ66 guide. However these are great as a supplementary purchase.
Available on both Android and iPhone, the Route 66 Navigation app is a SatNav specifically for Route 66. It will show you alternative alignments, driving in either direction with points of interest along the way. There is also an option to download the maps so that you are not reliant on a good phone signal (which isn’t always possible on Route 66!)
