Making its first debut at the Easter Jeep Safari Vendor Expo, the TRX7 is the ultimate off-road navigator. It features a 7" high-resolution touchscreen protected by a ruggedized IP67 shock-resistant casing, includes a genuine RAM® mount (depending on model), hi-res (to 10 meters) 3D and 2D topo base map views, and easy to use interface for following trails, recording tracks, and marking waypoints. Crowd-sourced tracks provide a constantly updating library, allowing users to plan adventures, add pictures and comments to trails, and share with other off-roaders. The device also comes preloaded with over 44,000 designated OHV trails, making it the most comprehensive and purpose-built GPS navigators available for off-road enthusiasts.
