4x4 trail apps

Always a can of worms, and hesitate to ask but with the hope of "something new or updated" seeking advice for what your app preferences are.

Good question, hopefully someone chimes in with something cool

I use Gaia GPS. The dowload is around $20 but it is worth every penny- great ability to store bread crumb tracks and provides real-time access (or download) of various map including USGS topo, and some open source maps as well.

1960 SII 109" Tdi- "Red Square"
1984 90 Tdi- "Yamelo"
1988 RRC- "Chewbacca" (lives again)
2008 RRS SC- "The Supersofa" -wallet thinner


1972 SIII 88"- "GreenHELL" now in NC
1959 SII 88"- "The Little Green Beastie" last seen in NY
1988 90 "Eric the Half a Bee" half a truck, sold for parts
1991 RRC- never got a name- long since recycle
1987 RRC- "Chewy 2" Sold 12/18; now in NJ

I think Garmin's Overland product has potential. I am not affiliated with them and have no experience with it. It has not been released yet I don't think.

Here is a preliminary review.

Currently I am using MVUM's and those work great! Benchmark Map is ok.

Really good question,
For the TAT you have to use garmin files, was hoping someone bought one of the new big screen ones who give us a review.

I was looking at a Montana but that seems pretty old school now and none of the apps for iPads can take garmin files natively I believe.
Defenders don't wear out they just need more parts.

MotionX GPS app. The website has a GPX file import function as well.

I just picked up a used Magellan TRX7. So far I am really digging it. I hope to get to use it more once I finish up a month long Army school that I leave for in a week.

Initial impressions are good. Has a huge base load of trails. It knew of quite a few in my area that I didn’t. I’ll be exploring those as time permits. The POI’s seem good and it nice to have a database of fuel food etc. That doesn’t require interwebs.
