“The Trail Guide is the ideal navigation device for Wrangler owners,” “Whether traveling the highways, negotiating the byways, or hiking on foot, the Trail Guide is every bit as versatile as the Wrangler itself.”

The Trail Guide is mounted atop the Wrangler’s dashboard in a sleek custom cradle that provides power and audible voice prompts through dedicated speakers that are easy to hear even while traveling with the top down. For on-foot adventures, the user simply snaps the unit out of the cradle for handheld GPS navigation.

Loaded with detailed, street-level maps of the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, the Trail Guide contains nearly six million points of interest – including gas stations, lodging, restaurants, attractions, and Jeep dealers and service facilities. The Trail Guide boasts other premium automotive navigation capabilities – like a high-resolution color TFT display, automatic route calculation, turn-by-turn voice-prompted directions, and automatic route recalculation – at a price that is significantly less than most built-in navigation systems.

Jeep owners can take the Trail Guide with them when hiking, biking, camping, or fishing. The unit is completely waterproof and has an internal lithium-ion battery providing up to 20 hours of use outside the cradle. The unique antenna folds flush with the unit when not in use for added portability. The unit also accepts Garmin’s MapSource® U.S. Topo data for off-road adventures.

“Jeep Wrangler owners are known for their adventuresome, go-anywhere, do-anything spirit – and the Trail Guide is the perfect navigator to help them get there and back,” “And compared to many competitive navigation systems, the Trail Guide offers unique vehicle integration and is an affordable full-featured option.”

Jeep dealers can install the Trail Guide in any 1997 to 2006 model year Wrangler or Unlimited model.

Comments: I piced the trailguide unit together by purchasing the trailguide base from Mopar and a refubished Garmin Quest II on eBay. Garmin unit draws maps slow sometimes (I heard that the older Garmin Quest unit had better performance and also works in the trailguide base). Works well most of the time.

Garmin Trail Guide
Pros: versatilel, portable and has extra space for additional maps
Cons: Smallish screen, sometimes the refresh rate is a bit slow
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Basically a Garmin Quest 2 with the docking station and a darker finish. While there are arguably newer/better GPS units out there, I like the versatility of this one. I have the optional bike mount and a universal mount (for other cars) so I can get the most use out of it.

Install is easy, but if you have an '02 or older, you need some adapter harnesses to tap into the power circuit going to the radio. I believe someone on here figured out how to do it without the harness, but I just found it easier to just plug n' play.
