WHY DO WE LOVE THE TREAD SYSTEM?
Purpose-built for all-terrain use, this Tread device stands up to anything the elements can throw at it. It’s IP67-rated for water-resistance.
With its ultrabright 8” glove-friendly touchscreen, the navigator is designed for easy viewing in bright sunlight or pitch dark. It can be mounted in portrait or landscape mode.
Enjoy turn-by-turn trail navigation for traversing unpaved roads and trails using adventure roads and trails map content comprised of OSM and USFS Motor Vehicle Use Maps.

Tread includes preloaded topographic maps with 3D terrain for North and South America. It also includes detailed street maps of North America with custom routing for the size and weight of your rig
KNOW YOUR BOUNDARIES
