Download and install BaseCamp first > download and install Mapsource > download and install Ibycus Topo Canada > install the ATV trail map. Try BaseCamp first...if you don't like it try Mapsource ( has been replaced by BaseCamp and is no longer supported by Garmin but is much easier learn.)

BaseCamp LINK

Mapsource LINK

Ibycus Canada Topo LINK

I downloaded and installed Ibycus, years ago to this gps, but that was on a previous computer. So, not only do I not have the software on the computer anymore, I've forgotten what little I knew.

Thanks for the map and the help.

Thanks. I downloaded basecamp and installed the map. I used pan mode to go over to the map and check it out, and it is there. Should be good. Thanks a million.

For those with newer Garmin's that can read multiple img files here are two files you can just drop in the Garmin folder either on the GPS or the SD card. No need to use BaseCamp or Mapsource to install the maps.

SandHogs_Eastman ATV Trails.img

Manitoba Ibucus Topo.img

Note: The Topo map covers Manitoba from US border to Gillam and includes Ontario east to Thunder Bundling Bay and Saskatchewan west to Regina.

Is a Garmin Montana 600 still a good enough gps for general off roading?

Can it be used with gloves on? Or is that not a valid consideration for mostly following a map.

Woodbridge is a awesome place to going riding! Smart of you to ask for a map as you can very easily get lost there if you do not know that area!

I second that. Also use on my sleds and SxS and they are bullet proof at all temps and good screen size.

Do you run a power cable to the gps to prevent running off battery power? Or if not, how do you find battery life?

I use the Garmin Amps mount and wire it directly to a switched circuit. Never have to worry about battery power. On built in battery the unit will have power for about 5 or 6 hours but can be more or less depending on screen brightness setting and whether you keep back light on. The Montana also has a removable battery and when it runs out of power you can slip in double A batteries that you can have along.

I have the Amps mount on my sled, Razor and ATV so I just have to pop out the Montana and slip it into the other machine.

As Hartman-52 does I also use the AMPS mount. However I wired my GPS , electric faceshield and a USB port for charging my helmet cam batteries to a fuse block I added. All the circuits on that fuse block are always hot as I want power to everything when I shut the sled off on rides. I use one AMPS mount with a plug and can move it and GPS to other vehicles that have pre-installed RAM bases/balls. I have tried mounting the GPS on the dash and handlebar and find having it as close as possible works best for viewing GPS while on the go.

Similar to RWS mounting, here is the Amps mount setup on my ATV and sled. This mount also has a locking tab so the GPS won't giggle out. It's a real solid and reliable combination and I have gone through many GPS units and the Montana is my favorite. There are also many Android devices out there with bigger screens and adaptable software but you have to check for cold intolerance.
