BACKPACKER GPS Trails Lite

BACKPACKER GPS Trails Lite

       iOS iPhone

Backpacker GPS Trails Lite doubles as a portable trip database and personal navigation device for your outdoor lifestyle: hiking, backpacking, camping, mountaineering, or for just basic trail navigation. GPS Trails Lite works in remote places like national parks, wilderness areas, and backcountry spots without relying on data & cell signals.

Please Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
