I am looking for a gps system for my 2016 Polaris 1000 Turbo 4 and hoping for some help. I don't know much about gps systems so I'm at a loss on where to start.

We ride in Michigan's upper peninsula which has endless unmarked or poorly marked trails. I would like to be able to track my ride and use it to reference the general direction to get back.

Does anyone have any suggestions on a product that would do what I need. Phone service is very poor and I would prefer a seperate gps unit.

I have looked into Trail Tech gps but they don't make a model for the Polaris rzr. They do have a generic one but wondering if anyone has used it. http://www.trailtech.net/digital-gauges/voyager-moto-gps/912-705

Thanks for your help! Krista

I have used a GPS for years and found the Lowrance Baja Trophy 5 to be top of the line. This unit can do more than you will ever need for off road use. The price is $399.00 .This unit has a 5 1/2 inch screen and easy to see over the bumps at most any speed. Drago.....

Glad to see this post as I am looking for the same thing. We went up to the UP in june of this year and trails are great but not well marked. We were limited to where we could ride because of that.  So if anyone has any added info or any updates as to which gps system is simple and easy to use please chime in here....

I have a Garmin Nuvi 65.  Garmin's Base Camp software is free.  I don't know what versions of Garmin GPS can use Base Camp.  But Base Camp allows me to plot a track and turn it into a route.  The track doesn't even have to follow anything but I use it plot a track in dried river bottoms and turn them into a route.  I can then download it to my GPS and follow it.  The problem I had with Base Camp (and still do) is the steep learning curve.  I had a mental block trying to determine the differences between a track and a route as used in Base Camp.  Once I got used to it, it seems to be very flexible.  But I can't compare it to other GPS systems.  The violet line across the middle of the image follows a dried river bottom.  I had to create the track with data points, then convert it to a route that I can download it to my GPS and follow it when I go out 4-wheeling.  Easy to do once you get over the learning curve.  I'm not sure if other GPS systems will allow you to create a non-existent track or route and add it to the GPS database.

      Hey everyone, got a strike 1000 in on a trade awhile back, me being dumb I didn’t check the fluid when I got it. Turn out guy had swamped it pretty good. Front diff, rear diff, and trans were full of water/oil/sludge. I don’t have a service manual only an owners manual and it do not state the type of oil the the trans takes or where the filler cap is for it. I have everything else taken care of so far just not the trans.
       
      Any help is appreciated.

      So I just bought a 2012 Wildcat 1000.  When I bought it, it was throwing the code P0500.  I followed suit and replaced the speed trigger and speed sensor.  The speedo and odometer still didn't work.  I went ahead and cleaned all connections including to the LCD gauge.  This past weekend, we rode and at acceleration I continued getting the P0500 code along with C1312.  After riding a couple miles, the speedo starting acting crazy and then all of a sudden worked.  I found after I cut off the machine, on restart, back to the codes until I rode a couple miles.  Any help on how to fix this issue would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks in advance.
