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.

      Hi, 
      New to the forum. 
      Came here looking for some experienced UTV users who can enlighten me about which brand should I pick for my very first UTV or SXS. 
      I'm between 3 brands and 3 models: 
      *Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXR   1000.
      *Yamaha wolverine rmax2. 
      *Can am Commander XTP. 
      The use I'm willing to give it is mostly to go to the range with my wife, load steel targets and all our shooting gear, we shoot a lot, rifles, Shotguns and Handguns for practice, training and competition. (Range is about 10 miles from home) 
      But also I want something that I can take to the trails and have fun on dirt, mud, rocks, puddles or creeks. 
      Any objective information will be appreciated, specially which is more reliable and durable. 
      Thank you and happy 4th of July.

      I could really use some help identifying some disconnected components on a Yard Sport YS400. The first part is this pipe, which comes out of the exhaust port area or the cylinder. It looks like it had a piece of rubber hose on it, but the hose is gone, and I have no idea what it was previously connected to.

      The second item is this vacuum valve looking thing.  Again only one line is still attached.  What is it's function and what other lines should be connected to it?

      The last thing is this hose, which exits the side top of the fuel tank (not the fuel line hose) but is not connected to anything

       
      Any help the community could provide would be greatly appreciated.  This UTV belongs to a friend, and I am trying to help him get it running correctly for his kids.

      My 2018 XG-850-SL starter died yesterday. The old part number from Kubota is E7153-11732 which has been superceed by part # EG881-63010. I am looking for an aftermarket starter because the Kubota retail price for the starter starts at $550 and upwards toward $850.  If anyone has gone down this road before and has found an aftermarket starter ~ please share with me. We own a ranch and this thing is used every single day and is sorely missed when it is down for maintenance.  Kind Regards, ~ Stan

      I have a 2016 Cub Cadet 750 Challenger Crew. My in tank fuel pump is inoperative. Can I put in an external inline electric fuel pump to replace the intank one? The inline ones are about $350. An inline electric one is about $25. Both are easy to replace just really expensive for the intank one. Any kind of inline external pump I should look at? What PSI is needed? Thanks for any help

      I have a part that fell over to the exhaust and burned the harness up. I can't figure out what it is. Does anyone know what the start relay looks like? The part I can't figure out has 4 wires, a red power, a green and brown wire, a black and unsure what the 4th color was. Anyone have a clue?
