    Garmin Rino to find other riders but its too small of display for good gps use. Maps3D is the best app. for smart phone. Just box off your riding area while having wifi or cell data and download the map. Now you can save it and turn off data. Tracking is good, all types of map styles and can download caribou areas too. Can't go wrong and now I bought a waterproof handlebar mount for the Iphone. Have a USB plug going on the sled too for emergency charging. Make sure you tether your electronics too as lost one phone and a couple of buddies have lost their garmins.

    For your phone, laptop or tablet the best one I have found so far is Memory Maps then google earth for 3 d satellite. Car navigation google maps. But there are at least 200 mapping apps to try, I have maybe only tried 10.

    i don't trust phone or phone apps for location. One of our members uses their phone to track where we have been. Several times it has shown us on the wrong trail compared to the gps. Unit was out by about a km..

    Re: GPS / Google maps, etc

    I've always felt more comfortable carrying a rugged, waterproof GPS. I've been using the Garmin 60 series GPS's for a number of years now and really like them. My only complaint, other than price, is that the screen is a tad too small side for my aging eyes. I haven't putzed around much with the mobile apps, but I don't really care to take my $1000 phone out riding with me - even with a waterproof case, I don't feel it would be rugged enough. Don't know if it's possible with the mobile apps, but I also like to clean up and catalog all my trips using an app like Garmin Base Camp.
