Question by Elisabeth L: Can you recommend some trip planning software for off-road 4×4 Jeeping?
My brother loves driving his Jeep Wrangler on off-road trails. I would like to get him some trip planning software, for Christmas. It would not need to be GPS-compatible, but he does have a Garmin, in case that is relevant. He lives in Virginia and mostly goes Jeeping in Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland. He has excellent computer skills, so software complexity would not be a problem. I have seen “TOPO” map software, but don’t know if that would be the best choice. I would appreciate advice from any of you Jeepers, out there. 🙂 Thank you!
Answer by Mike S i go off roading mostly in Tennessee and Kentucky. I have found most computer mapping software totally useless for off road trails. The TOPO maps do a good job of showing the terrain and are helpful in knowing how steep and area is, however, they usually don’t show the trails very well.
I have had the best luck just getting paper maps form the local parks where I run. If you know which parks he visits, check the forums for those parks and see if anyone has made a custom map of the park.
