Technology in the off-road world is constantly evolving especially in the world of navigation.

The TRX7 features a water and dust proof case protecting the LCD touchscreen that comes with a pogo-pin mount and RAM rail mount that allows you to mount the TRX7 on virtually any 4x4.
Coming loaded with over 44,000 trails the TRX7 is the most comprehensive outdoor navigation for off-road enthusiasts. The mapping has a ton of cool features including:

-2D Topo base map & contour elevation lines
-National and State Parks and Recreational Vehicle Areas
-National and State service roads and trails
-Ever expanding crowd-sourced Trails
-Food, Gas, Lodging, and General Service POIs

Since the Magellan mapping system is cloud based and crowd sourced, the trail maps and details will continue to grow thanks to additions from trail riders all over the country.
The integrated Cloud based technology will allow users to save and share their trips with friends and family through social media, or the entire TRX7 online community. Not only will your dirt miles and trail ride be saved, but waypoints and photos that you may set or take along the way will be automatically saved with your trip.
Magellan improved off-road safety as well by including trail ratings based on several criteria including: difficulty, length, duration, terrain, technical obstacles, and awesomeness. Important waypoints such as campsites, aid-stations, and water are included so you can easily navigate back if needed. The TRX7 will also automatically mark the beginning of the trail ride, and with once touch can navigate you back to where you started.
The Magellan should be available by the end of October with an MSRP of $599.99. We will get our hands on one ASAP to test out and report back to you how well this packed and advanced GPS works in the dirt!
