  • IGuidance Questions (NEWBIE)

    I have been lurking here for a long time, and got lots of great information regarding Iguidance. But i've got a few unanswered questions regarding the functionality of it.

    I noticed that you can record a track and play it back, but my question is... Can i display the route on the map instead of watching a replay of the track? This is more for offroad adventures and maping trails, than watching myself drive down the street...

    Also can you load Topo maps into IG? I will be installing this into my 4Wheeler, and some of the places i will be going with it, aren't really roads. So i would like some sort of map to display my route on.


    Thanks!

        I recomend you get iguidance, a port splitter, than a seperate app for the topo maps and use a frontend to switch between the two. iGuidance is only really good for roads.

          Can you recommend another software that is easy to use that i could use for my offroad adventures? I'd also want something with a recording feature so i can log the trails.

            TopoUSA from DeLorme is the only one for pc that I know of. I messed with an older version a couple years ago. The 3d maps look cool, but are not really helpful when you are actually 4wheelin. I just use my eTrex to record tracks and provide basic navigation for previously recorded or downloaded tracks. I think all of the delorme products allow importing tracks from handhelds though.
