This is good news for us trail weenies for sure.
I confirmed this information with Pete at A-Loop offroad. He is putting together all the information on his website and I will post a link to his info when it becomes available.

The CGI script is a bit strange so you may need to navigate back to May 1st to find the release

I know the Garmin GPS III is the standard but it's about $385 which is a little too pricey for little ole me.

If you have one of the 'streets' or map CD's these have the lon/lat settings for the US. You just look-up the place you want to go on the CD, get the lon/lat & enter them on your GPS. It's very easy.

Fairly simple action to try and get back some off-road voters he's pissed off! Don't buy it! They are still planning on banning all mechanized vehicles.
So when you are a whopping 10 miles in on your quiet nature hike, your GPS unit can get you out since there won't be any trails available!
