Mile Markers On Interstates

 

Has anybody ever seen online maps, (Google, Mapquest, etc.) that have mile markers on them. Or that have Exit Numbers, for that matter. For instance, if I know that Exit 24A is at Mile Marker 149, how would I find that on a map?

Am I interpreting the question to be, "If someone tells me to exit 'at exit 24A' or 'at MM149', how do I find that on my GPS?" If so, would it be an acceptable solution to find it on the appropriate web map and export it as a POI to the GPS using the "SEND" option?

Clever signature.

Mile Markers on Interstates

No. I am building POI files. When I look at an online map, Google for example, The Interstates do not show mile markers or exit No's.

GoogleMaps has little green circles with the MM and exit numbers on the interstates in my area.

Good Tip

bentbiker, thanks for the tip. Note that you have to be in "Map" view (vs Satellite or Terrain) and zoomed quite close.
