Hi Ken, I hope you have a great experience trying out onX Offroad!Howdy, my GPS experiences in race trucks and chase trucks have all been limited to Lowrance products, in fact I prefer the older simple devices like the Baja 540c. Our budget does not allow for movie screen-size GPS, so these devices work well. This year, however, after seeing OnX hunting app, I dove into that wholeheartedly and found it absolutely invaluable... marking camp, truck location, trails I found, and even icons for animals, cabins, whatever. I look forward to the off-road app for just playing around this summer. I want to load the BOR Jackpot race and compare it (while testing) to the functionality of the Lowrances I own.
My question, however, is: What device can this be viewed on, which will withstand the abuse of a no-windshield race truck or side-by-side, and how would it be mounted? My small crappy cell phone is less than desirable, hell the screen is broken half the time. Even when chasing in the Raptor, I don't want to hold a device in my hand. I am guessing someone will say tablet... or get a better phone. You can't tell me people mount their $1000 i-phones in their SxS?
Either way I look forward to using it. Although the Lowrance units are completely sealed and durable, I am not drilling holes in my Raptor dash. Furthermore, they are expensive and not really user friendly.
You can add the Jackpot race files to your account via the web map import feature. Here is the login link: onXmaps Web App
