    Just got it and looking to make it our own
    Looking for the best app, site, or device for showing off road trails and areas. I use forest service maps now (usually screen shot where I am going and use the map on my phone)...What do you use?

    Thanks

    I would suggest a local map store close to where your trail is. On my side of the world, I have used this guy:https://www.sidekickoffroad.com/. But these are limited to a few of the more hardcore trails. This guy is a hardcore Jeeper who got into the map business. National Geographic is a good choice, it really depends on what you are looking for. I have got a lot of help using GoogleEarth to get the lay of the land and go from there.

    You might look at Gaia GPS as well.
    You can log into their website and create a route and such on a desktop/laptop computer and then sync it to your phone/tablet.

    looking into Stereos, do any of Gaia, On X or Google earth work with Car Play?

    Any if so, do they work on trails or offline GPS?

    Was really hoping it would work. Was leaning towards getting this.
