yep memorymap on any gps pda etc will do it as will any garmin gps system.

Be careful though I once downloaded a route off my old Garmin V and it showed me doing a steady 85/90mph for 70miles down the M5/M54/A5. wouldn't want plod to have got hold of it

Memory Map or Anquet Mapping will, as will TomTom Navigator. All of these run on a GPS enabled PDA/Smartphone (Windows Mobile)/Netbook.

I use Anquet on a PDA, it's great and the livetrack feature tracks where I've been. The maps can be pricey though, although you can "cut your own map" rather than only buying OS sheets (you can buy those too).

Never used Memory Map, but I know others who do and it seems to do the same job

If you're less fussed about the "tracking on a map" feature, then there are a number of GPS programs that will keep GPS co-ordinates for a route that, with some work, you could map onto Google Maps or Google Earth... I think. Never done it

Forgot to say - if you have an iPhone, they'll be an app for that...

Memory Map on the lappy does it, but be careful how you set up the GPS.

Mem map can use a lot of RAM, depending on the size & res of map you have loaded, and if you set the GPS up to record track markers too close together, it can freeze, but depends on how powerful your lappy is.

I also use MS AutoRoute 2010, also on lappy, for on-road Sat-Nav, and it will also track your route.

But got the lady a Garmin 'Nuvi' I think was the model name, just before X-mas. Gread little widget, FAR more convenient in the car than tha lappy, but it doesn't have my MP3 music collection on it!

Garmin ARE supposed to be compatible with Memory Map & you are supposed to be able to hook them up to a PC..... one of the reasons I chose a Garmin for her.

anyway, contrary to comment, not ALL Garmin are 'down-loadable'. this one of the missus' I was dissapointed to discover could only be up-loaded with data from Garmin subscription site; basically the speed camera data-base updates, I couldn't upload my directory of LPG petrol stations, nor could I down-load routes, but it was only 70 or something.

ONE thing to bear in mind is file format when saving routes; you might want to save a trace captured on a dash-mount Sat-Nav, but down-load that to PC to store and share, or review on Mem-Map.

Need to be sure that the variouse widgets have a common language, there are a couple, think TOm-tom has its own unique one, though.

BUT, usual cautions & disclaimers, just becouse you have driven a trail with some-one else and captured the route to GPS trace, doesn't mean that the route is status confirmed.

Most reliable navigation aid is still the paper map, which also gives some indication of status's by way of vehicular rights (though currently most OS maps are actually out of date with regards obsolete RUPPS)

Driving a trail again, you still have to ensure that it is 'status confirmed' before driving it.

Use a tracker... (I would say that anyway but ...) the routes are downloadable as csv files and should be easily imported into other apps.

PLUS

You get your motor back if it gets nicked!

I've used Memory Map alot on a PDA phone which is great for walking/cycling etc but not really had chance to use it for greenlanes as not been out much unfortunately No reason why it shouldn't be as good though

I also used the following Map your tracks and photos, share your position from your mobile | free Mobile GPS Tracking Service for a rally I did across Europe last year which again was excellent (and is free). We mainly used that instead of anything else as it allows live GPS tracking online which is pretty cool, also allows you to post directly to Facebook/Twitter etc...

Cheers

Richard
