Planning an outdoor adventure with your GPS? Here are some recommendations on GPS accessories to bring along on your trip.
Hiking: Keep track of your GPS by clipping it to your bag with a carabiner. Your GPS will now be easily accessible when hitting an unfamiliar fork in the trail!
While hiking, topographical maps are a great resource. The topo mapping provides elevation details, keeping you informed when hiking mountains. The maps will also show elevation contours of nearby ravines and riverbeds.
Camping: A fun activity that can be enjoyed on camping trips is geocaching. Geocaching takes treasure hunting to a whole new level whether you're on a family trip or a solo adventure.
When camping, protect your GPS gear with a water-resistant canvas case. NiteIze offers a wide variety of size and styles to house all your gadgets and accessories!
Fishing: RAM Mount's huge selection of mounting options, including fishing rod holders, makes fishing more enjoyable. Choose from a clamp, screw or suction cup style mount to attach to your boat.
If you have a Garmin GPS, check out the Inland Lake micoSD/SD cards for Canada and the United States. These maps have contour and depth information for thousands of lakes across North America and are listed by province or state.
Water Sports: Video cameras, like the GoPro HD action series, can be used during a variety of water activities including surfing, water skiing and tubing. Lightweight, durable and fully waterproof, you can strap the camera to your wrist, your surf board or your boat.
If your electronics are not water resistant, protect them with an Aqua Box from RAM Mount. Multiple size choices accommodate your cell phone, MP3 player, camera and more.
Off-Roading: Outfit your ATV or quad with mounting options for all styles of GPS units, cell phones and tablets. These rugged mounts are designed to withstand the rough trails and survive various outdoor elements.
Screen protectors are the most important accessory for your GPS screen. These protectors reduce the chance of scratches from your keys or tree branches and help extend the life of your GPS.
