Oooooohhhhh!!!!!!! Tell me more about the GPS functionality!!!!!
What is it using for base maps? To what level of detail? Can you upload modified img type map files? Able to log waypoints? Routing? Does it have a active track log that can hold more than 500 points?

More... more.. more...

From the TrailTech Voyager web page http://trailtech.net/voyager.html:

Voyager Moto-GPS
IMPORTANT: Allocation Status. Expect at least a 2 week delay on Voyager orders.


So, any chance of getting early access to the user manual??? I looked on the 'Instructions' page and didn't find anything about the Voyager yet.

Yes. What software does it use, and does it play well with a .GPX file?

You can have up to 200 waypoints.
You can also have 1 track with 72,500 points (or up to 300 tracks with 241 points, or some hybrid.)
You can also have 1 route with 72,500 points (or up to 300 routes with 241 points, or some hybrid.)
Route and track memory are independent (e.g. you can have up to 72,500+72,500=145,000 points total if track and route memory are both full.)

Nice keep giving us updates. More info on the unit would be nice. What program to you use to get tracks on it? Do you just copy them to the mSD card?

No software is needed. Simply copy the GPX files to a MicroSD card using your PC, and then import them into Voyager. You can also swap MicroSD cards between Voyager units.

Native GPX is good.
But what kind of maps, and what about topo maps too?
IT would be perfect if there is map building software so I can
convert my obscure GIS data files to roads for it like I've done with my Ifinder and XOG.
Color would be good in the future too.
I'm going to be looking for a new instrument setup for a project I'm planning.

No Topos.

Found the answer for topos.

More info.

Question: Does Voyager have topo maps?

Answer: On the trail, OHV (off-highway vehicle) riders do not typically utilize elevation data found on topo maps; instead, topo maps are used because of trail route information. Topo maps are mostly based on aerial photos from the 1950's and 1960's, so many are out of date and inaccurate. While some updated topo maps are available, the efforts to restore them focus on hiking trails, not OHV trails.

Because topo maps are not particularly well suited for use on OHV trails, Voyager provides a better means of collecting, displaying and sharing up-to-date OHV trail information. Routes may be imported into Voyager from standard GPX files, or exported for later review and sharing. Using Voyager's trail-centric approach, riders can enjoy a superior experience using up-to-date trail maps.
They're copping out on Topos.
That kills it for me. There is times you get into an area exploring and without elevations you don't know if its a bluff, mountain or river over the next ridge.

A shame they got a great idea I was interested in till that bit of info.

Yep, me too - thats a deal breaker. Maybe topo isnt useful in the flatlands, but it sure as hell is here in the mountains.

Wow!...no topo info? That's downright strange for something that seems to be clearly designed more for adventure riding on DS and converted true dirt bike. Odd.

No color + no TOPO + the unreliability factor of Trail Tech stuff = a no buy for me.

I see this unit only being purchashed by the novice off-road crowd, and a bunch of ATVers.
