  1. 2018 Riviere du Loup Trail Conditions/Gossip/Tidbits

    Brrrr cold. Gave the Poo a quick bath after the Doos broke the ice for me. Only damage was my ego!
  2. Jack & Sandi's trips

    The mayor of RDL (mikerider) lands there this weekend and I'm meeting up with him on the 12th for the week. Hope we can catch up! Terry
  3. Polaris ride command (gps)

    You are not going to be happy with my two word description of the PIDDs GPS function: almost useless. The GPS functions about the same as a $80us Garmin eTrex. As Cnc said, trail maps are provided by clubs willing to participate with Polaris and participation seems to be only popular in the mid-west US states. If you are looking for GPS functions such as trail numbers, intersection numbers, lodging, gas, routing and maybe even turn-by-turn directions, you need to get a Garmin with an add on trail package. It's a great gauge but not a great GPS. Here is the level of trail detail on the PIDD for northern VT and NH: Not a great picture, but all those green lines on the Garmin are trails. Here is a better picture of the same area shown on the PIDD in the top picture. This is a Garmin with an add on package.
  4. GPS DEVICES

    Garmin Zumo 590 and Garmin 276Cx both have a 5" screen. The 276Cx isn't a touch screen but uses the same mount as the Montana 610, Zumo has it's own mount. I bought the Montana (used via this forum) and it has gpstrailmasters.com trail maps. The Montana has a 4" screen and I mounted to the handlebars via a RAM mount. The RAM mounts are excellent!. I haven't felt like I needed a larger screen, probably because I have it closer to me than mounted atop of the gauge cluster. A 5" Nuvi with a AquaBox and a RAM mount is an option as well. I don't know anything about Track-Maps, but I've been happy with gpstrailmasters.com. Hope that helps.

    Phew, I was worried when you didn't respond to my text! Did you bring a camera this time??
  8. Thetford Mines Conditions?

    Thanks NSHM. I completely forgot about that report section of the website.
  9. Limited time this weekend (seems to be my story all season) and thinking about crossing over to QC via truck and trailer. Any idea what the snow cover and trail conditions of Thetford Mines is by? I checked the grooming status on the interactive trail map and it provided little insight. Thanks in advance.

    Life in the big city today was spent figuring out where the red wire went mike... Just like snowmobiling, but completely different!
