The best GPS options for an off-road
depend on what features are most important to you—and fortunately, you have plenty of options to choose from.
To narrow down your options, you’ll need to decide whether you prefer a built-in GPS system, which might require some technical know-how or professional help to install, or whether you’d prefer a portable GPS option that you can use elsewhere for other purposes.
When it comes to the latter, you can choose between a portable GPS option that functions as its own device or an option that pairs with another device like a smartphone or tablet to function—but these options may only work where said device has service, which could present a problem in the most remote off-road areas, and they could drain its battery more quickly as well.
Here are some commonly recommended GPS options for
off-road Jeeps
  • Garmin Zumo XT Off-Roading GPS
  • TomTom Go Off-Road GPS
  • Garmin GPSMAP 64st
  • Magellan TR7 Trail and Street GPS
  • Garmin Overlander
  • Trail Tech Voyager Pro GPS Kit
  • LandAirSea 54 Off-Road GPS
When you’re looking for an off-road GPS, prioritize options that have accurate maps that include off-road areas that can give you alerts about established off-roading trails and potentially dangerous terrain. Long battery life, trip memory and checkpoint logging, and a strong independent signal are additionally ideal qualities to look for.
Enjoy exploring your options—and the off-road!
