If you’re looking for fully functional, easy-to-use GPS units for use on the trail in your Can-Am Commander, you’re at the right spot. Although the Can-Am Commander limited edition comes with a GPS unit, not all Commanders come stock with navigation systems. And for those without one, there are many options available. The Garmin 650 as well as the more expensive 680 series are popular ones as they fit exactly in the stock dash cubbies. Can-Am offers some expensive harness to hook them up, but the mount only requires power and ground for the Garmin to charge. The Garmin Montana 680T is the exact one that comes with the limited. You can get the mount from us, hook up two wires, and boom, you’re done — and for much cheaper than the factory setup. The Garmin Rhino and Garmin Zumo GPS units are also popular, and so are Lowrance units. Whatever GPS you decide to go with for your Can-Am however, you will likely have to install detailed maps of your particular region for the latest updated trail information. Take note of trail signs as well, as some maps will load snowmobile trails that are not meant for UTV use.
In addition to providing detailed trail maps, some GPS units also record where you have been during a ride. This is useful if you want to change up your rides or give your friends advice about where to go. Another UTV navigation option is a GPS-enabled tablet.The older Samsung Tab A 10.1 running Back Country Nav Pro works well. You can stuff it in a protective sleeve with an InvisiGlass Sapphire screen protector so it won’t get damaged, and mount it with a Ram Mount. Back Country Nav Pro is $12 on the Play Store, and doesn’t charge fees for upgrades or updates. And unless you want to pay for special maps, they don’t charge extra like some of the others do. These and other GPS units also allow you to Import/export GPX files (shared from friends or the ones from the website GPS File Planet. We have GPS units with huge screens that you can see from across the cab, and some even allow you to download movies to play on a connected TV.
