What is the Best GPS for ATV Trails?

It looks like GPS for ATV Trails is not a big choice on the market today.

I am not a big fan of ATV riding, but once I used to ride with a friend in the woods and meadows on his Polaris ATV

vehicle.

It is no problem to ride in familiar forest tracks or along a beach and other familiar tracks, but when it comes to driving in thick forest or rocky mountain path? How to find a way and not to get lost?

As a GPS navigation system fan, I decided to do research and find, what could be the best solution GPS for ATV trails.

I was disappointed to found that just a few GPS navigators the market is offering uniquely for ATV  GPS.

I try to search the App Store and find that only more or less valuable for off-road riding is Trimble Outdoors Navigator. I downloaded it to my iPhone 6S for free but to thoroughly enjoy all features you have to purchase maps, e.g., private LandMaps for Alabama goes for about $ 45. Even more, only the US maps are available, so for me as a European other solution has to be found.

For me, an idea to use an iPhone for ATV and other off-road adventures is not a good one. Even more, it is not a smart decision somehow DIY attach your $900 worth smartphone in open, rain, and vulnerable mud impact way at your ATV.

When it comes to stand-alone GPS navigation systems for ATV trails the only what I found is Garmin eTrex 30x or Garmin eTrex 20x, but the best choice by my mind is Trail Tech 912-301 Voyager Stealth Black Moto-GPS Computer.

The product Description in Amazon online shop is very informative: „Voyager is like no other GPS you have seen on the market. The one and only GPS designed and manufactured for off-road. Whether you ride motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles or 4 wheel drives, Voyager is your unit. Display: The Voyager 400 x 240 WQVGA LCD display has no rival on the market, featuring incredible resolution and contrast. In intense sunlight, the transflective properties go to work creating a bright, vivid display. An LED backlight lights the display after the sun goes down. Mounting: Voyager mounts directly to your vehicle, bolted at or below the handle bars. This unique mounting solution allows Voyager to become an integral part of your vehicle. Voyager is the first GPS product that has a dedicated peace-of-mind mounting system for an off-road motorcycle. Smart data logging: When your engine stops so does the GPS trail logging – eliminating random data points from your track when you’re not moving. Explore new trail areas with confidence. Voyager also offers on and off the trail file sharing between units via the waterproof MicroSD card (reads most GPS brands). Temperature: Voyager provides both ambient and engine temperature. Engine temperature is saved in track data points and graphed for comparison with altitude changes. Diagnostic screens help you review engine performance from past trails. GPS speed, distance, compass, altitude, temperature, maps, wheel sensor, engine performance linked to GPS data, crash resistant, off-road design mounts below the bars for protection, upload routes from any GPS or PC, customizable user screens, model-specific integrated kits, accepts AC or DC power from virtually any vehicle, rugged handlebar mounts – 7/8 inch to 1-1/8 inch, waterproof. Screens: Data is intuitively arranged and quickly accessed using joy-stick navigation. Mapping: Accurate tracks, even in the toughest terrain. Pan, zoom, graphs, waypoints, and more.“

What else to be added to this.

Only one from my personal point of view. I’m a little envious of the American colleagues because it is already quite a lot of ready-made ATV trails in the US and just have them load the GPS navigator.

 Voyager GPS kit comes with free complimentary software RideLeader to help you create, edit and save your trails. This unit perfectly fits as GPS for motorcycles, especially for off-road riding enthusiasts.

If you are the lack of ideas where to ride, just go to OHVtrails.net. Great ORV maps GPS and printed search in vvmapping.com

There are a lot of ideas and ready to go trails. I was failed to open it in the Chrome browser but no problems in Safari and Firefox. Unfortunately, the Google Earth plugin is currently only available for Windows and Mac OS X 10.6+, so my attempts to open it on iPhone were unsuccessful.

I thought that only American ATV riders are ready to ride ATV, snowmobile, and off-road Trails, but maybe I just still do not know how to find. Have to look in European ATV riders forums.

I definitely will, but it turns out that is not so hopeless to create your private trails.

It is a way to create your unique personal trails and transfer them to Voyager. I found a very useful video tutorial on how to do it. Maybe a little complicated from the first look, but, in any case, it is not a Chinese alphabet.

I would not make traditional pros and cons listing just to say that found some not happy with hard operating procedures, but after a short workout, it turns out that is not so difficult.

 Trail Tech 912-301 Voyager GPS is a great GPS for ATV trails and having it on board you will definitely not get lost in adventurous ATV ride, either it will be a desert or rocky mountain ride or deep dark green forest trails.

My dear readers and brave ATV and snowmobile riders!

Since you are reading this article then you are interested in off-road and adventurous driving.

As you can see that many of my reviewed GPS devices are linked to Amazon shopping and no secret that this is one of the most popular and one of the cheapest places almost for anything you need. Definitely that there are other shops and online stores but me any many others prefer Amazon as no other places with so detailed real customer reviews base. 

What I try to say?

This post is on the top ten in Google search by keyword „GPS for ATV trails, “ and Trail Tech Voyager device has been purchased more than twenty times. So, I guess that only this figure alone suggests that this device is valuable and I decided to devote a separate review.

The sailing season is coming to an end in Northern Europe, but the autumn for off-road adventures is the right season with rain and muddy trails. Some news for the GPS market for the ATV market, I’ll write soon.

    Hello!

    I have to admit that I was in the same situation as you about a year ago. I tried to find a good GPS for ATV, but my searches were not very successfull… At the end, I decided to wait and see if something better would be lauch on the market. Now, I’m reading your post and it gives me hope! I will definitely go take a look at this GPS.

    Thanks!

    very informative. I used to think that the GPS unit was dead. With cell phones and all. Now I realize that they are still making some really good units and putting them on the market for us to buy. I love that becasuse GPS is very handy when your on the road.

      Hi, Tony and thanks for stopping by!

      GPS is not only not dead, but sat navigation is evolving quite rapidly. GPS is not the only sat nav system. Russia has own GLONASS; the European Union is about to complete Galileo but India and China have local navigation satellite constellations.

      Marine navigation is slightly different comparing cars on the roads. You can drive on roads without GPS, and the only failure could miss the right turn to your girlfriend’s street but without knowing the exact location of the Sea has a great chance to run aground.

    Very nice to know that solid GPS devices are still out there as I usually don’t like the phone versions. Looking at your site it gives me added reasons to look into getting one of these very useful gadgets.

    I leave in a rural state and having excellent GPS when you are in the thick of the woods is helpful if not necessary. Your right the more familiar you are with a trail the more cocky we get, but having this insurance would go a long way in ensuring you stay safe especially when learning newer trails.

    Andrejs,
    I do a lot of trail rides where there is no internet or phone service. After downloading trail information what does this system use to track your location. I have a son that likes to go on the trails by himself, he does not know the trails as I do. Looking for a system that will help him if he gets off track. I like the idea that it will keep track of the vitals of the ATV while riding.

      I’m a little envious of the American colleagues as they have tons of ready to use off-road trails and tracks. The only you need is download them on compatible GPS for ATV trials device.

      For me as the European citizen and even Eastern Europe trail rider it is a bit harder. Although knowing where to search you can find rather good ready to use track made by riders community members.

    What an interesting theme you choose, I mostly use GPS systems for coordinates and geo position but not for driving but I think is a cool device to help go where you like and I didn’t know a lot of things, but you have a complete information here, I want to know if the GPS for smartphones Can you use it instead of a GPS for a car?

      Thanks, Felix for commenting my post about ATV trails.

      As you noted it is not just for ATV but can be used for hiking, biking and even boating in small rivers and so. There is many ready to use trails and forums where members can exchange their tracks. As I wrote in my post, you can create your own trail. In fact, it is not so hard. When it comes to smartphone navigation applications, the short answer is yes I used some.

      Most useful for me is Waze but drawback it is an online app so for me in Europe not so good decision when driving abroad due to high roaming fees. There are Garmin navigation app e.g., for the North America about $70 in Appstore or Sygic Europe for 19.99 EUR. Honestly, I never have used both but reading reviews they are far from stand alone GPS navigator devices features. Free app with free updates and voice navigation. Simply download entire country or part of it and you are ready to hit the road. I can not any hidden traps for this free app.

    A friend of mine is using a marine chart plotter on his snowmobile up here in Canada. Works awesome as it has a bigger screen and is totally waterproof! You just have to make sure you get a unit that can load topo maps. Garmin makes alot of units and you can load on any of thier maps, including topo. Also have to make sure the unit does have an internal antenna as some do not. Great thing about marine plotters is that they take a wide variety of maps (not Garmin though, propeitory maps). Bad thing is that they are expensive relative to a reg handheld GPS. The larger screen sizes is awesome though, especially bouncing around the trails.

      Hi and thanks for stopping by.
      You mentioned an interesting solution for which I had not thought about.
      I am more or less familiar with GPS for boats but I never even have not considered the option to use it on ATV or snowmobile. Actually, it could be rather a smart solution when you have a boat and the GPS unit if it can be easily removed from the ATV or snow bike. The only thing that might be a problem is how to attach it properly. DIY could be the one.
      Honestly, as you mentioned, marine GPS devices are more expensive, but snowmobile or ATV driving is more dangerous in terms of crashes. I think that using marine GPS for a snowmobile for ice fishing is a really good idea, not for complex and dangerous ATV trips.

    I am glad I came across this article. It was very informative! I am looking for a Christmas gift for my husband who is an avid Mountain Biker. I an curious if you think this is a good choice for using on a Bike vs an ATV? He loves to travel around and go to new places to ride which always makes me nervous since he doesn’t know the trails. Something like this would be perfect! Thank you.

      I guess that for mountain bike a Trail Tech 912-301 Voyager GPS is not the best choice. Garmin eTrex 20x or 30x could be better alternative. Even GPS watch Garmin epix is a perfect gadget but it is a bit pricey.

    Hi, I’ve kinda found the same problem when trying to find gps maps of hiking trails. Seems to have the same problem.

    I’m sure the trails have been surveyed and entered into databases because I have been able to find a few of them. But it seems like the technology hasn’t fully got around to off road trails like it has for the main roads, and it makes sense why. But hopefully someone will do it soon.

      Hi, Dustin, and thanks for stopping by. Honestly, I am too lazy to hit the hiking trails but as I am addicted to different GPS gadgets. One of my favorites is Garmin Epix GPS watch. It is a powerful fully functional GPS device with the preloaded US Topo maps. Unfortunately, Europeans need to find other mapping solution, and it is doable by surfing local forums.

    Hi, Andrel ! I must admit I am rather new to the exploration of Parks and the Wilderness, in general, but my girlfriend has urged me to open minded to seeing nature, so I relented. The first thing I did was search the web to find the best GPS devices, so that I may never get lost – that’s how I found your page and I am so glad I did. Utilizing the Trail Tech Voyager GPS Computer will help me feel at ease when we embark on Yosemite. Thank you for your thorough review !

    Looking thru this it appears the Voyager has a black and white screen for their maps and doesn’t have actually mapping on it of the area. Is this true. I live in Alaska and snow machine. I have been using the Rhinos but with my aging eyes I can’t see the screen well enough and looking for something bigger. Some people use the Garmin 267 but now those area discontinued. Touch screen doesn’t work well enough with gloves, snow and cold so buttons or toggles are required. Any help would be nice.

      Hey Mark! Great to read the real users comments. Long story short. Trail Tech Voyager is a really good device with additional features for engine performance monitoring and more. No touch screen and friendly price. But, as you noticed, no GPS maps but you can create your own trail or download from PC or card. Is it a drawback? Yes, in certain situations like get lost in the woods map can be helpful. On the other hand, everyone has smartphone deep in warm pocket or backpack, take it out for a minute, check Google map and find the right direction. Regardless of low ambient temperature, even my iPhone 6S allows this before switching off due to the cold. Another option is Garmin Montana 6xx series devices and 680T in particular. Read online or even on my site just one remark. Yes, it is presented as touch screen just it is glove friendly. It means that not heat sensitive, like most of the smartphones, but pressure sensitive. The letter „t“ stands for topo maps. Screen sizes for above mentioned not as large I wanted, but it is hard to find the bigger one for snowmobiles. One solution is Lowrance HDS-7 Gen3. It is pricey but if you have a boat and are addicted angler then smart choice.
      Thanks again for stopping by and I hope I helped a little.

    You are right about the fact that using the cell phone GPS for off-road adventure is not a wise decision. On one hand, it is you should never bring pricey stuff with your self in such adventures and on the other hand, most cell phones are not reliable and they are very vulnerable. If your phone simply falls and breaks you’ll probably get stuck in a difficult situation without a GPS. The Voyager GPS seems reliable and promising. I will brows them before the next off-road adventure. Thanks.

    A good  GPS for ATV trials can be life saving. When you go off road in countries as Australia, the US or Canada. I have never been there, but I understand that without a good GPS system, you really can get lost forever. I am living in the Netherlands, and here we are max. half an hour away from the civilized world. And every field is cultivated with signage.

    Hi,

    Thanks for providing information on GPS devices as its something I have been researching which are the top ones going recently, so this as helped me massively. I am currently on a slight budget so im looking for ones that do the job but I can also afford. The one you suggested I believe is the Trail Tech Voyager GPS but from what I can see it costs around $500 which is too high for me.

    Just wondering do you know of any cheaper alternatives that I could try out?

    Thanks,

      Hi Joshua. It is Trail Tech Voyager Pro for about $600, but there are Trail Tech 912 series devices for less than $300. The Pro version has the color full display and some other additional features like the volume control for your headsets and glove-friendly color touchscreen TFT display. But in general the cheapest devices and Pro fulfill the same task GPS trail for ATV, snowmobiles and other off road areas.

    this is a timely post about GPS units for ATV trails. I ride off road motorcycles usually with a group of 5-6 . We take off for a couple of weeks during the early summer and ride ATV trails in eastern British Columbia  . One of the biggest downers of all is when you end up riding in circles when you are actually trying to get to a destination . LOL it’s not as simple as some of the folks who are reading this think. This off road GPS unit looks great and I am going to forward your link to my wife … maybe she will get the hint !! Do you know if it would mount on a motor cycle ?

As for traveling through forests or deserts, I would rather not go there without proper navigation. Trail Tech Voyager Pro is one of the top choices.

    Seems like the market is very vague when it comes to navigation using an ATV which doesn’t seem great as I feel like it is quite a popular sport so I don’t know why anyone hasn’t hopped onto this niche.

    It’s great that you’ve managed to find a great product that is capable for the EU area and yes definitely would agree that using your iPhone wouldn’t be the smartest option.

    So I’m guessing this gps tracker is easy to attach to anything, is small enough and is weatherproof. I would want to be able to ‘hide’ it on my atv or bike. I wonder if you can save and upload a route you have ‘forged’ for yourself in the woods, desert, if you want to remember that exact information for a future outing or if i want to send a friend on that exact route. Can this be done?

      You’re right that GPS trackers can be hidden so that others don’t see it. Yes, usually GPS for trails can record and save the route you travel and send to another user. Usually, it’s a GPX format that most PGS devices support.

Getting lost in the wilderness is one of my greatest fears. Out there, no one can help you. At the same time, though, all of the best places in terms of nature and scenery don’t have phone signal!

    It is such a pity that one has to buy separate GPS navigators for these trails as it would be so handy if you could just get an app for it installed on your phone that had all the necessary functionality.

    I am sure in a few year’s time, we will be able to do this and the separate GPS navigator will end up falling away. What do you think? I always prefer to carry as little as possible with me, and if it is only my phone I need to worry about I will be a lot happier.

    Hello Andrejs, 

    The Best GPS for ATV is a good article for fans of the outdoors and ATVs. I personally find it too dangerous to ride ATVs, especially in the kind of terrain most people drive them. I would probably roll off a cliff into a ravine and never be found again. 

    But it’s not that I don’T like adventure sports, hey! I have done loads of rock-climbing, abseiling, parasailing, and mountaineering. In fact, we are a group of friends who are always looking for new trails for trekking and similar activities. The GPS devices you have reviewed are all great. Lots of research seems to have gone into this. 

    Thanks for an interesting read.

    If you are going off road I can certainly see how this would help. I actually thought this was a dead market but clearly not as if you go off the standard route you need help. I guess this is the gadget to have if you are in that kind of situation. As someone who grew up in the country I can totally see how this would benefit. It’s also kind of cool. A really useful review, thanks.

    Thank you for your very detailed information about this very less untapped area. I was actually in search of the same information and other than your site, I haven’t seen many information online. Though the information you provided here is simply great in its own right too. Hence, this is really great to see here

    Hello Andrejs,

    Thanks for this really wonderful information you have shared here. There are quite a number of GPS devices out there and a lot of them can’t be trusted. I haven’t made a search or the right one for an ATV Trails, but after a friend asked g I had I idea, I decided to make this search and the Trail Tech 912-301 Voyager is definitely a great device to give a try.

      Thanks for stopping by. I’d prefer Trail Tech Voyager Pro despite being nearly twice the price. Those who think the smartphone app is a solution are severely mistaken.

    I am quite happy to find a GPS compatible with ATV Trails. I am planning to buy some for rental but I was not quite if they had GPS integrated or if I head to buy them separately.

    From your post, I got a lot of information and I am grateful. Now mine are made and shipped from China and they do not have GPS integrated, what will be the cost to have the GPS installed in 10 ATV Trails in Europe? Or is it something easy to fix that my team and I can do? Because I can see that they come with manual and instructions.

    Thanks

    Wow,  I’m a big fan of ATV riding and gps,  i was surprised not to know much about the Trail tech 912 302 voyager.  I just did personal research on it and it seems really good compared to the others. The 400*240 WGVGA LCD is really  unbeatable. The free complimentary software ride leader is also another mind blowing feature.
