Should you fear learning the technical features of motorcycle GPS?
Of course not! The beauty of living in the digital age is that learning new technology is actually really easy. You can read the owner’s manual if you wish, but we’ve found it’s even easier to hop on YouTube and watch a tutorial.
There are zillions of videos on YouTube—at least one of them will certainly be about the GPS unit you have. There you can get a step-by-step walkthrough of the exact device you have, and even if you’ve figured out the basics of how your GPS works, odds are you can even learn something new.
I drive loads of traffic to these videos because there’s always something new to learn. And they continually get better every year.
As you can hopefully see by now, a motorcycle navigation GPS is a powerful tool that goes beyond what a phone can do—especially since we’re also talking about riding off-road.
Yes, they can offer basic turn-by-turn navigation like a phone, but they take it to the next level. High-end devices feature long-life batteries, barometric altimeters, and topographical maps to get as clear a picture about your route, its elevation, and even the weather, as possible. Some of these devices can also track your route and save it if you want to revisit it in the future or send it to your friends for them to try. Can your phone do that?
