Garmin’s Overlander Is The Ultimate GPS For Off-Grid 4×4 Adventure

Jun 6, 2019

Category: Tech

Garmin and GPS are practically synonymous at this point. So it should come as no surprise that the American-founded brand is still at the forefront of navigation. Even still, their newest product, the Overlander, is a revelation that’s making us scratch our heads as to why it didn’t already exist.

A bit larger than your average vehicular GPS device, this full-color device performs brilliantly as a turn-by-turn navigator when you’re on the road. But, when the tarmac ends, that’s when the Overlander truly shines. With a simple push of a button, you can switch over from road-going GPS to topographical mapping, allowing you to navigate over any terrain on the planet. It also has a full suite of onboard sensors that include a compass, altimeter, barometer, and (most interestingly) a pitch and roll detector to help you in your bouldering endeavors. It also comes with WiFi connectivity, can sync with Garmin’s inReach satellite communicator, and even has preloaded directories to help you make camp when the sun goes down. And that’s to say nothing of its stand-alone toughness and weatherproofing. All told, this $700 is a must-have for all 4×4 adventurers.
