In addition to the roadbook, they loaded GPS waypoints every 20-30k or so. Just enough GPS info to tell if you were heading off in the wrong direction, but you still had to ride the roadbook as you primary navigation.

I rented a 640 enduro from Gantulga at KTM Tours Mongolia:

He picked us up at the airport, arranged hotels and serviced the bike along the way. Totally turn key.

Any other questions, fire away.
