    Using the Ram mount on my iPad. Have the one with the 4 arms as well, but tried this one and really like it so far

    I like the idea of lifetime, but I ride local and WV, no one has anything for my local trails, and I can get WV for free in on iPad so doesn’t make sense to pay that much for maps. I also have a 7” Lenovo tablet I put WV maps on. Don’t use that one much but I keep it updated and bring it as a spare.

    I live in Louisiana and ride in Louisiana and Arkansas. LT website doesn't list any trails/maps around my area.
    I'm still weighing my options also.

    Looked at the TRX7 like it has map installed and can add your own trails

    I have a Montana also and purchased the Topo CD and installed it on my computer. When I come home I download the Montana track onto my computer and hit print. It prints me a map of where I've been. Also if you plug in a power cable on the Montana the light stays on. I zoom in to max and don't have a problem seeing the screen. I also use the RAM MOUNT system but remove my GPS when I walk away from my machine when in a crowd. Works very well for me in Northern NH

    I use Gaia IPhone-IPad App on one of each.
    Found the GPX file to the entire North Cumberland WMA trail system and uploaded it.
    It lets me track, assign way points, navigate to waypoints with average speed, time to distance, elevation, ascension over time, and compass direction.
    Mounting it with a RAM 1.5 ball connected to a VESA mounted tablet grip.
    I like the big screen as the older I get, the harder it is to see.

    Looks like a great set up. I really like the tablet over the Garmin Montana.

    Thinking about the Avenza Map App, ... free app, free USFS MVUM's (literally 100's of trails) ... 7" tablet with GPS but need a mounting suggestion. Anyone a fan of Avenza?, ... anyone with a mounting suggestion?

    I use the IOS Scenic Map app on my iPad and wonder if the GPX file you have has more trails then the files I have or have created. Do you mind sharing location of the file?
