  3. OFSC On-line Map Working? Is it just Me?

    On an I pad with my big fingers dragging the sleds around I'm having trouble seeing the locations where I want to drop them for route planning. is there a pointer thingy I can get for it ?

    Well kudos to the people working on the ITG, and the Ofsc for, I assume, listening and trying to correct some of the concerns regarding the ITG. I am guilty for complaining and criticizing the new ITG and I am aware it takes a lot of hard work and money to make things the way they are for us snowmobilers, and like to thank everyone involved in making things happen. I usually don’t complain because I don’t volunteer (planning to in the future) and also understand the efforts by all involved. But I wanted to express my concerns due to imo there were a few safety concerns (from my perspective) again I’d like to thank the Ofsc and all the hard workers that make this sport a wonderful experience.

    This is good news, looks like Ofsc is working hard to correct these concerns. Thanks for making us aware of this.

    Yes my point exactly very very dangerous!!!!! those in the know like most of us here and those experienced/seasoned riders should know better, but imo my biggest concern is the new to snowmobiling and or family with young children new to snowmobileing father planning a ride...depending on the ITG and God forbid is put in a bad situation. Just the thought gives me a bad feeling and makes me very upset why the old map couldn't be left in place or the new tested prior to release.
  7. Major C TRAIL change in Sudbury

    That's the "C" trail ("up past Thor Lake") that I miss so much. Oh boy I'm getting a little excited, hope my crew and I will get up that way this year.

    So if you can't plan your own route, and you want to go from point A to point B and the ITG plans the route for you (which at this point you can't alter it ) with "closed RED trails along the route that it plotted what do you do ? Experienced riders will figure it out with paper maps etc., novice and new to the sport will most likely rely on the ITG. imo it's not very "interactive" and I also think the "your location pin point" is a must have. I honestly do think it will be fixed but I'm definatly not waiting and planing rides as we speak. The snow is flying and the cold is coming and I beilieve the previous ITG should have been left in place for the time being, or maybe have a survey with questions about what can be improved. The seson is short, the sport is fragile, this is not helping the cause.

    the Quebec map isnt much better...and the new itg is simular to it, imo the old itg was perfect with route selection and live time location. all the other featuures or poi were already nthere and worked good also.
  11. Riding Alone/Gps tracking

    If never had to try, (thank God) but it’s not impossible.
  12. Riding Alone/Gps tracking

    It’s also small and light enough to keep in your jacket pocket where imo a device of this nature should be, on you at all times in case the machine is not reachable.
  13. Riding Alone/Gps tracking

    Is a sat phone better than an inreach ? imo it depends on the situation, in some circumstances a satalite phone doesnt connect and results in a no connection situation, if your trying to make a leisure call it might not be a big deal. The nice thing about an inreach or any other sos device is the ability of the device to try and connect over and over untill a connection is achieved.
  14. Riding Alone/Gps tracking

    Garmin inreach is a great alternative to a satalite phone, you can converse with anyone anywhere via text message.Has an sos function for emergencies. and you can turn off your cell phone or turn on airplane mode to save the battery for when you might need that device. One stated above that its pricey, not necesarilly true since you have many coverage options to choose from and for a minimum charge in the off season your able to suspend it at any time with no additional fee to reinstate when needed.Best of all you cant put a price on being able to be rescued in case of an emergency and able to comunicate with loved ones when cell phone coverage is not available. I have been using one for many years and will get another in a heart beat.
