TrekNow GPS Route Benefits:

Save Time - If you value your time at all, you will spend more money just reading this statement than we charge for one of our GPS Routes. You don't have to do the research and work required to produce the routes.

Accuracy - All of our Backroads GPS routes are based on USGS Topo maps. The routes are done at the maximum resolution USGS 1:24,000. Where a discrepancy is found between the actual route and the TOPO map, corrections are made to the TrekNow route to reflect the actual route.

Freedom - With our routes you are given the freedom to do off-route exploration with the knowledge that by using your GPS tackback capability, you can return to a dependable route to your ultimate destination.

Predictability - By properly configuring your GPS, it can tell you exactly how far you have to go to the end of the a given route and even tell you how much time it will take based on your average speed. The way out is the way through. With our routes you can be certain that by following the route you will get to your desired destination. These routes eliminate navigation uncertainty. The route distances and technical ratings allow you to plan your trip so that you have enough fuel and time to complete the journey.

Security - Always let someone know where you're traveling. You might want to invest in a Personal Locator Beacon with GPS capability so the authorities can be notified when a problem exists and where to find you.

TrekNow GPS Routes answer the question ...... Where to go?
