A capable, reliable, high-functioning GPS is a must-have on any overland journey. We chose Garmin’s Overlander®, because of the wealth of functionality and cool navigation tools it provides, including a variety of map types and safety-enhancing options. Overlander is a rugged, all-terrain navigator with a 7-inch color touchscreen that features turn-by-turn directions for on-road navigation and topography maps for off-grid guidance. The Garmin Explore™ app easily syncs your waypoints, tracks, and routes across your Overlander device, smartphone, and desktop (this does require an active Wi-Fi connection). Additionally, the app can be used to download a variety of maps, such as satellite imagery and USGS quad sheets, to Overlander’s 64 GB of storage. Overlander comes preloaded with iOverlander™ points of interest (POIs) and Ultimate Public Campgrounds, so you don’t need a cell signal to find the best-established, wild, and dispersed campsites. For increased safety and enhanced communication, this system can be paired with an inReach® Mini satellite communicator (sold separately) for interactive SOS, weather forecasts, and two-way text messaging via the Overlander device’s keyboard (an active satellite subscription is required for the inReach device).
Fits anywhere with a powered magnetic mount that comes with a suction cup and 1” ball adapter with AMPS plate compatible with RAM mounting systems.
Turn-by-turn directions for on-road navigation and topography maps for off-road guidance covering North and South America.
Pitch and roll gauges as well as an integrated compass and barometer.
Built-in rechargeable battery lets you take Overlander beyond your vehicle.
