I am about to leave (Jan. 1) on a 365 days motorcycle trek all around the U.S. and Canada. I currently have an iPhone 4s, Motion X-GPS, a Mac Book Pro, and a Canon 5D Mark II. I would like to map my trip and, if possible, add photos and video (beyond the 20 limit with Breadcrumbs).

I spoke with Garmin and they recommend a 62 or 78 series unit for my GPS tracking...but I wonder if I can accomplish about the same with my iPhone and what I've listed above.

Are you able to give me some guidance on my options/capabilities using the setup I have listed above? Would the Garmin unit expand my possibilities, efficiency, or reliability?

Any guidance you can provide me to maximize my use of Google Earth on this adventure would be GREATLY appreciated!
