    MOA Anonymous Offline

    I am wondering if there is a PDF version of the MOA Anonymous book. I'm preparing to ride from Vancouver BC to Harleysville PA this September on my R100RS and space is limited. Something on my phone instead of a book might be potentially useful. I found the offline Flash App for use on a PC or MAC but that won't work on my phone. Apologies if I have not found this and it exists or if I have missed something about the Flash app for phone use. Thx!

    Not that I've heard. Can you print individual pages to PDF that cover the route you're taking? That's about all I can think of...

    I have it saved on my phone. I think it's a online version and not pdf.
    I have a screen protector drying now and can't turn it on to check.

    If you have software on your computer that can "Print" to a .pdf file, access the online version and click the printer icon at the top of the window. Select your PDF "printer" as the destination, and it can convert the entire online version as one file. There is free software available which provides this function, but I use software from Foxit. I think Windows 10 and newer Apple products include this capability. The copy I created works very nicely on my phone, but the online links to websites and phone numbers are inactive. No big deal, as cut and paste still works.

    Larry -

    Unless I'm doing something wrong, that process for me only prints the current page, even if ALL is selected.

    I am using a very fast PC running Win7 and I also use Foxit. I used the printer icon in the online version and tried to print P1 to 190 with varying success. Flash keeps crashing or throwing errors and the best PDF Creator printer can manage is about 34 pages. Next try it got 64 pages. I've rebooted to clear the cache but each attempt seems to throw Flash errors saying the app has stopped or is unresponsive do you want to continue or wait but eventually a PDF file pops up in Foxit with varying amounts of pages.

    I'm trying now to make several files about 30 pages long.

    Adobe Flash has had these sorts of issues since day one as I recall. Why people love Flash so much is beyond me. Why not just put a simple PDF file up which any browser can simply display and dispense with the fancy fonts and animation tricks that Flash provides until it crashes that is.

    There is an icon on the online version that allows you to download the pdf directly. No need to print to pdf...

    Go to this link: http://content.yudu.com/web/y5b2/0A3...tml/index.html .... At the top of that page is an icon that looks like a downward pointed arrow with the arrow pointed into a box. Click that and it will open this: http://content.yudu.com/web/y5b2/0A3...nymousBook.pdf ... In that just right click and choose save as and save the pdf wherever you like...

    Those links might have session information embedded in them, if so just search for Anonymous on the MOA site, click on the link to the digital version of the anonymous, click the arrow/box link I described and save the resulting pdf page it opens...

    Looks like I have the pdf and online version on my phone, plus I carry the book.
    Looks like I have it covered

    MOA Anonymous Online

    Just to update this thread you can now go to BMWMOA.org, login and click on Resources, Anonymous Book then scroll down a bit and click on "Click the cover to access the digital version of the Anonymous Book".

    Once it comes up you will notice a small down arrow in the top left corner of the cover. Click on it and it will open a dialog box asking if you want to open it in your browser but you want to select Save File. This will download a .PDF version of the entire book. I then copy this to my cell phone so it is with me wherever I ride.

    Leave the book at home!

    Reece and Wes have mentioned a new Anonymous Book app.
    I take it this will be available soon.
