Off Road GPS
What do you use & how do you Like it ?
I use an older Ipad with a couple different map apps. They don['t need a cell signal, have built in GPS, no phone needed, etc.
Resolution is outstanding, tons of maps, in fact, I have the entire Western US loaded, in several forms, and could likely load the entire US! Mine is a 64gb.
Your results may vary...
There is another thread - titled communication and navigation - where you will find lots of info on this topic. There's also an extensive amount on expedition portal.
Not really a thread, but a sub forum:
Communication & Navigation
I just use a Garmin I got on CL for $40. Shows the actual trails when off road and no downloading or cell signal required.
Which model did you get?
Garmin Nuvi 2639 LMT.
I have an iPad mount and I run Gaia on it. I also use it for Bluetooth streaming music and since it has a cell radio, I use it for navigation around town as well.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 running Gaia GPS
I gotta figure out how the heck that Gaia works. I have it for my tablet but have yet to play with it. I need to install my Ram mount for it.
I think thats more than gaia. That looks like a obd 2 display
No, that's not Gaia but Torque Pro. I run Gaia on it also via the tablet's GPS.
I'm more of a fan of BackCountry Navigator vs Gaia if using an Android tab. Downloading off-line maps was easier for me, the app ran more smoothly and it was easier to import GPX/GPS/XML files on my older Tab 10.1
Thought that might be torque pro.
GPS - the best travel hack...
Like @TonyP, I was most familiar with BCN for my previous trips. This last trip I decided to try Gaia. I was with another vehicle that also had Gaia but they had the premium membership. After looking at the views on his app vs. my basic membership, it was obvious I have to upgrade. FYI.
