Digital Navigation system

Post by RowdyandMe » Sep 19 2017 9:57 am

I have this navigation system on my car and I am wondering if there is a way to put in a trailhead name and get driving directions to the trailhead?

I don't know what system you have, but Google maps has some trailheads--I just checked for Flagstaff, and Mt. Elden and Schulz Pass are in there. But I would double-check before just hitting the "start" button because in the past we've found some trailheads to be mislabeled--can't recall offhand which ones.

Why don't you just try with the desired trailhead and see?

Try the lat-long or equivalent.

guess if you don't know the cross streets you gotta figure it out and type it in or maybe coordinates as suggested

If you have a babies toy.
Route Scout
- import route
- tap route in files folder
- tap drive


If it's a major trailhead forget the use of hands
"okay google, take me to the peralta trailhead"

I tried the verbal command this morning to Sunrise Trailhead and it had me going south on I17 which I new was wrong.
