Let’s face it. Riding is always more fun with friends, but it’s not without its fair share of headaches. Whether you’re trying to keep the group on-track or attempting to establish a clear line of contact, the fact is — even the most everyday of off-road outings can wind up being a logistical nightmare.

But with the launch of its all-new ‘Tread’ GPS navigator, Garmin is aiming to simplify the experience so that you can focus on what matters: riding. For instance, it features a Group Ride Radio function that enables tracking and two-way communication for up to 20 riders. And because of its included support for Bluetooth, you can even pair it with a helmet or headset so that you can keep your hands on the wheel. But that’s not all — the Tread also comes with an ultra-bright 5.5″ touchscreen, an addition that gives you complete control over preloaded topographic and street maps, public land boundaries, and high-res BirdsEye Satellite Imagery. Top it off with a series of built-in sensors, InReach compatibility, and a rugged IPX7 and mil-spec 810 construction, and the result is a GPS that’s ready to tear it up off the beaten path. It’s available now for $800.
