Not comparing this to any Apps, but as a stand-alone unit, the Magellan eXplorist TRX7 Off-road GPS is the best off-road GPS there is.
Those who own a Tacoma eventually feel the urge to go on a little adventure. If you’ve ever done this on the spur of the moment, you probably realized pretty quickly that your GPS (or your favorite app) doesn’t have your back. Yep, crickets. Well, the Magellan eXplorist TRX7 Off-road GPS Navigator won’t leave you hanging and has some great specs and features.
7″ Touch Screen Display.
The large display is crystal clear and responsive. It’s also easily readable in sunlight.
Comes Preloaded with over 115,000 Designated OHV Routes.
This includes forest and public lands.
You’ll never be alone… or hopelessly lost again. All kidding aside, the turn by turn navigation is very convenient.
The interface makes it easy to follow trails and record your own tracks, so you can revisit if you wish. Press a button and the GPS will start to track as you drive. It’s literally ready to go right out of the box. Just read the instructions. There’s little chance that you’ll have that moment when you’re sitting in your off-road vehicle wondering, “How do I use this thing?” Everything is straightforward.
Ability to Review Trails.
This feature lets you look at trail attributes before heading out, so you know what to expect.
Safety features include off course notifications which let you know when you veer off the intended course and backtrack. The backtrack feature guides you back to your starting point if you get lost.
Satellite Map View.
This is an awesome feature. Satellite map views are obviously very helpful, but the feature comes with a catch. You have to subscribe so there’s some additional cost there, but it may be worth it for you.
RAM® Dual Mount.
The mounting system allows you to mount to tubing or a windshield thanks to the 3.3″ suction cup and 1″-1.25″ rail mount. Both offer the security needed for the device. Either way, you can easily detach and reattach when needed.
Social Sharing Feature.
This feature makes off-roading a bit more interactive. If you’re the type who feels compelled to tweet as you’re on the trail, you can do that.
Invest in this GPS and never get lost on your off-road trips again. Whether you drive a Toyota Tacoma or are more of an ATV type, you’ll get a lot of use out of the Magellan eXplorist TRX7 Off-road GPS Navigator.
