GPS preferences?

9 posts in this topic

Hey all - wondering if any of you use GPS on your ATVs or cars or in life in general :)

I borrowed the ONE last week from a friend and absolutely loved it (didn't want to give it back, but alas)...Has anyone used the RIDER (the one made specially for motorcycles)?

      It just sucks when your ATV goes missing and you can't find it, right? Hopefully you just forgot where you parked it! Now if someone took off with your ATV, that's a problem. You may never find it again and it'll be sold to someone with the VIN scraped off and you are out of luck. If it's worth some money you probably insured it, so good job and notify the authorities immediately. However, nowadays with the way mobile and GPS technology works, you can just equip it with a tracker (some newer ATVs are coming with GPS built in) so that if the day comes that someone makes off with it, you'll find your ATV and the thieves!
      We looked around to see what technology exists out there and found the SPOT Trace! This unit retails for $119.95 and sells for around $99.99 online. We found it on Amazon for $97.99! Plus...you can get 50% off!

      Does anyone use GPS, whether on a device or app to record their ATV trail rides? I have been thinking about a section where our members can upload let's say a .gpx file and share their rides on a google map for others to see where there are riding areas. Not sure if this is something of interest or how much it would be used, so just trying to get an idea.
      Importing routes from files like xml, lmx, tour, freshroute, gpx, kmz, kml

      I recently purchased a polaris Sportsman 500 and am looking forward to riding trails into the backcountry. I was wondering if anyone can recommend a good, rugged GPS unit that will handle rough trails and be easy to read in the sun.

      What GPS are you using or like for trail riding?
