About Tyre

Find routes. Make routes. Share routes.

Make Tyre and your navigational device work together.

What if you could integrate your Google Maps and Google Earth routes in your TomTom device? You would have the ultimate navigation kit. I called it Tyre. Tyre existed with this first question. While shaping the solution I came up with the following requirements I needed for Tyre.
A navigation device doesn’t communicate with Google Maps or Google Earth on its own. So I needed to build an application that would do just that. I wanted the possibility to point out my routes and some points of interest at home with my computer. I did not want to push my finger onto the touch screen of my TomTom device every time: to add one waypoint to an itinerary, I had to crawl about three or four TomTom screens each time.

"The best route planning software by far for the TomTom. I've used Tyre almost from the very beginning and I like it as much today as I did then. I've lost count of the number of people and businesses I've recommended it to over the years. "

"Thank you very much for your ongoing work on this most excellent mapping program. Without doubt in my opinion and experience trying many many mapping apps/software, the best by far. "

Edouard Cugni

"Hope you keep Tyre alive for a long time."

Use Tyre to build itineraries, easy and fast

What do you have to do to make Google Maps and your TomTom cooperate as a good team? As a matter of fact, it is really simple. I wrote a small application myself. Everyone may download and use it freely. You can use it to create itineraries (route files) and also to create files with points of interest.
You can open and save files in several different formats for TomTom, Garmin and other device types.
Tyre itineraries and points of interest


I parted ways with my partner, which means Tyretotravel has stopped. I reverted back to offering Tyre for free, as it was in the past. Tyre2Navigate is and will always be for free. We use donations and sponsors to cover all expenses made.


Tyre has been developed to make it possible to let your navigation device communicate with Google Maps & Google Earth. In a few steps you can get Tyre working. Connect it with your navigational device and you're set within minutes.


Right now Tyre works on any Windows powered PC. We are currently working on a cloud based version, which will also work on iMac’s. Give us some time (and donations) and we will do our best to launch the cloud based version asap.
