    Good time to update firmware and maps on GPS units. Garmin Express told me which Garmin units required updates. Always good to keep current.

    Download Garmin Express here: https://www.garmin.com/en-US/software/express/

    If you are updating maps, be sure to load a copy onto your computer. If you fish around in "details" on the map update page as you are about to upload to your unit you'll find an option of upload a new map to your unit and to your computer.

    If you use a Mac, this is very important. The recent update to macOS Catalina will require Garmin updates in order to use BaseCamp.

    Liked your trailer so much I ordered one much like it. Same color and dimensions, insulation, windows and RV door. It'll be my bike hauler/caveman camper. Looking forward to adding the finishing touches once I pick it up.
    Will add V-nose counter top and upper shelf, under counter will be gear storage space with a 2x4 retaining lip on floor and roll down cargo netting to retain contents. Helmet shelf and gear hanging hooks across from walk-in door.
    Thanks for the inspiration Cannonshot!

    I’ve also got a R&R trailer. They are really nice.

    Thanks, do you think the 66 is that much better than the 64? Worst part of my 62 is the mini usb that looses connection quite often

    The 66 has a powered mount. Don't know how well that works though.

    Cannonshot, thank you for recommending the 64st.

    I purchased a 64st from Cabelas when they were on sale last Fall and it works great. I have already successfully used it for a few of the Loosenut routes in Indiana.

    Question - would the 64st be able to operate the ORV & Snowmobile Routes offered by VVMapping?

    Looking for advice before I purchase, thank you.

    Yes, they are Garmin compatible. I've used them on the 64 myself in the past. You can buy the card or download the maps to your PC and transfer maps or make you own card later. VVmapping is good stuff and I use it as my principal map for DS riding in the Great Lakes region and in Appalachia.

    When I get some ambition, I'll install this batch of stickers on my various conveyances. I really don't want to add up what they all cost . . .
