I'm with Ace. I've been sporting the Montana 600 for over a year now - it is an awesome piece of technology, in fact there is not much that compares to it IMHO.

A year ago was able to buy a cobra gps nav from 4 wheel online, it was cheap as dirt.

I guess the link is dead, just go to 4 Wheel Online and type in "cobra gps nav" at the search bar for a faster search.

A cheap option for off road is GaiaGPS, you can get it just as an app for your phone, works well enough on an iphone without cell service. All the topo quads in the country for $20, good deal. Problem is the topo quads haven't been updated in 30+ years so I use google earth at home to check out routes in advance.

I use them for backpacking and most run in airplane mode (so you aren't hogging battery life). You might check out the apple store or the droid version of that.



Pulling this out of the archives! Curious what your favorite apps are these days? My phone typically doesn't work well where I ride in the Tillamook Forest, so I tend to only bring it along for camera purposes.
