GPS ?
« on: September 22, 2020, 09:54:54 PM »
Do any of you run a GPS while riding ? Some of the areas are vast, and it seems like a GPS might help. I have a few of these, with one permanently mounted in one of my 4x4's and another mounted on my utility quad that I use for hunting/woods riding. I've gotten lost before when in thick woods, or when after an animal or such, and when alone, it makes it much easier then staying overnight in the woods, when weather is bad. I've wheeled in most of the western states, and remote areas of Canada (not on any maps), and they really help.

I am not that hardcore. Last time I was deep in the woods, commercial gps units were not available

15 years ago I took a handheld Garmin to Glamis when I went for the first time.  I don't have a need for a full unit these days but I do use a couple iPhone apps - Gaia GPS and onX Offroad - even without cell service they typically still find GPS signal to track my route.

Try Avenza on your phone thereís a feature thatís allows you to track yourself. As far as maps youíll have to see what you can find one there all my uses on it have been for work uses with PDF format maps for offline use.
