Lifetime Trail maps...love ours, it has many settings to personalize to your liking and biggest advantage for me is it uses satellites and not cell towers. Thus works everywhere, whereas the cell service is spotting at best here in the eastern KY/TN mountains. Comes already loaded with several trails, color coded and labeled for easy identification and you can record and create your own trail maps for your personal riding areas.
Those are all the trails that I would like to have maps for. I have an the original 9.7 iPad I think, with cellular. I should give this a shot before spending money on a Samsung then. Can you point me in a direction where you get your maps or what app to use?I use an IPad and love it. There is a couple ways to use a tablet depending on the tablet. Tablets set up to use a cellular carrier has a built in GPS chip the WIFI only ones require a GPS input ( which isn’t a big deal) my old IPad worked good but it was the first version released and when I had all the maps for Windrock, Brimstone ,Trails End ( actually TWRA Royal Blue) and Ride Royal Blue( Sanquest TWRA ) it got a little slow so I traded up to an IPad Air and it works flawless but it’s only WIFI so to fix that I bought a GPS device called BAD ELF for $100 and it works great. With either option you DONT HAVE TO HAVE CELLULAR SERVICE as long as you download your riding area before leaving which is done using a tile format. Once you have your maps/ Topo or satellite and saved you will never have to do it again. All my maps are color coded by difficulty and you can add or build maps. You can also change colors of a trail if conditions change or you feel it’s easier or more difficult than the color marked.
If you already own a device this is the most cost effective way just use an Otter box or Life Proof type case to protect the tablet from mud or rain.
I just had to bite the bullet on a phone so I got a Samsung9+ so for that kind of money I'd like to put it to use.Those are all the trails that I would like to have maps for.
