MAKING TRACKS AND WAYPOINTS. BEING ABLE TO SAVE TRACK TO A SD CARD OR MEMORY ON MY DEVICE. MOVING, SHARING AND STORING GXP FILES. YOU HAVE TO HAVE AWAY TO MOVE SAVE TRACK & WAYPOINTS OFF YOUR DEVICE, IF NOT AFTER TIME. IT STARTS GETTING CLUTTERED .

Received one as a Christmas gift, it is a Garmin and has all of the National Parks and the areas I ride in loaded. You can also download additional maps. It can save waypoints and fits my needs. Think it came from Best Buy. In any do a search and see if consumer reports have evaluations. Ray you might consider not using all caps, no worries just saying. Ride safe and be sure to have fun.

I mounted mine up high to stay out of the water and mud. Took a bit of searching to find the right mount -- below is a picture.

I use mine in the Talon and also have a mount in our Winnebago I just switch it out. Serves as a street guide in the Winnebago and I use the GPS function in the Talon. Let me know what you end up with and how you mount it. Always looking for a better way to install stuff. Have fun and ride safe.

Nice, I would move mine over but have 7 extra switches and a module for the second battery located there. Just not a lot of room in the Talon for add ons.

just a tip on saving decals from pressure washer. If you have one with changable tips (Mine is 3GPM & 3,000PSI), you can buy a white tip (I think 40 degree) for a 4GPM and it should drop pressure to say 1,500PSI and still have full water flow. For me, it gets the mud and crap off and I have not had an issue with decals since started going that way. Most of the lower PSI washers don't have any GPM, plus most can't snap in foam gun

Yup that I what I use came with 4 tips and the white one is what I use on decals, I still knock one off once and a while. Mud riding is fun but clean up is a chore. Do ride safe and have fun doing it.

Yup works fine some of the stickers are not very good others top quality never a problem. In any case I just slap another one on. No worries.

I used to run the Garmin Montana with OnX hunt maps. They show most of the trails out there and let you know what land you are on, private, national parks, state trust, whatever. I used Garmin Base Camp on my PC to organize, up load and down load.

I wanted to combine devices and simplify so I am using my old IPhone SE with the OnX hunt map app. You can use it on cellular or if no service, you can down load detailed maps and satellite images. My iPhone runs my chase lights blue tooth and music to my intercom blue tooth.

It would be better with a larger screen like my iPhone 8, but I'm not sure I want to use it due to dust, even though I have it in a life proof case🤔😝

You can set it up and it will show you single track, limited width trails, high clearance 4x4 and even shows closed trails.

So if you have a phone and don't want to spend $200-$1000 depending which gps unit you chose, here is an option to try.
