Off-road in USA restrictions

Hi there!

My company has built an off-road Navigation app for Europe and we are currently considering expanding in the U.S. Any idea about the restrictions that exist for off-road and if it is totally illegal in specific States?
Also, what is the growth of off-road enthusiasts in U.S.A.?

So many thanks!

I sure hope you are not relying on a board like this for that type of information.

No pictures in the post so I really don't know what they are doing. Highlight fishing spots with the GPS could be a nice feature.

He could probably find out good info on features the off-road community might like on a board like this.

Or did you mean phishing? I don't think this would actually be phishing. He doesn't seem to be asking for any personal info. I think he is trying to get free advice, not a good place to ask for legal advice he will get what he pays for.

I do think if he asked the right question he could get info of some value when it comes desired features the off-road community may want. I am not sure how the jeepforum administration would feel about soliciting information in this manner though.

On the off chance this is legit, OP seems to have overlooked the vastness of the US. The restrictions differ from state to county to city to town to individual property owners. Here in San Diego County alone the Anza Borrego State Park is nearly 1000 square miles and a good portion of that open to off roading.

Good luck

Other the Lowrance I don’t think anybody else makes an “off-road” GPS and theirs aren’t cheap. If somebody else made one maybe a little competition could bring the price down.

I would be curious to know what kind of "off roading" is available in Europe and what some of the restrictions are.

Depends on where in Europe. Places like the Netherlands have few open spaces; very high density with urban sprawl. Eastern Europe has more forests and open lands for trails; at least Czech Republic, Poland, Russia, etc.

Rock crawling isn't very popular, but trail runs with camping is common. My family lives near a large forest and 4 x 4s are allowed on just about any established trail. In fact, there seems to be more accessible unpaved roads there than here in California.
