NORRA will have a computer setup on-site to download the tracks to your GPS. They may also provide a chip with the course on it. That detail is still to be worked out.

Every year NORRA has been inching towards a true roadbook style rally. I think that trend will continue. I agree it would have been better for them to get this straight earlier. Like with all Baja racing, everyone has to adapt to the unexpected. If you don't want to purchase a fancy roadbook holder, do the GPS odometer and duct tape thing, or buy a tupperware box as many have done in other rally events, and tape it on. Here are a few photos of "budget" roadbook holders:
