I have a simple question. I see an increasing number of rallies and tours offering the option of having the route available as an app on a smart phone. On the SCM 1000, we used both the  Rallista app and had a printed route book.

Do you have a preference? Does using an app detract from the old school ways of turning pages and keeping track of miles? Does the app make it seem like you are just following a nav system like you might do in a newer car? Does the navigator become less involved with the tour?

Also, route books offer an opportunity to have more information about the geographic and cultural attractions you are passing through. Do you miss not having that additional content on a phone app?

Given a choice, how would you prefer tour instructions be presented?
