Compare to Traditional Guide Books and Fold-out Maps
  • Guide Books are strong on background information but less than adequate for navigation and inconvenient to carry
  • Fold-out Maps are strong for navigation but provide little or no background information about the trails and rides. Maps are portable but inconvenient due to their large size
