Garmin has recently released their Hunt View product for a limited number of states including Montana. Both TRAX maps and Hunt View maps have a map for Montana, so we can use it for a comparison. Some people may ask how does it compare to MTTRAX for instance. Here is a comparison based on the information available when the Hunt View product released in mid-October 2014.
- MTTRAX contains Block Management Area lands and Open Fields information; Hunt View does not.
- MTTRAX can run on any Garmin which accepts a memory card such as Automotive Nuvis; Hunt View only works on handhelds.
- MTTRAX has hunting units for Elk, Bear, Goat, Antelope, Sheep, and Moose; Hunt View does not.
- MTTRAX contains contact telephone numbers on 50% of private land records; Hunt view does not.
- MTTRAX is a layered map allowing features to be turned off and on; Hunt View is not
- MTTRAX is updated twice per year; Hunt View will not provide updates. The product must be purchased again.
- MTTRAX contains fishing, hiking, camping and other data such as Fishing Access Sites; Hunt View does not.
- MTTRAX can be purchased individually or as part of the 8 state Western Bundle including Montana; Hunt View is a single state only.
- Hunt View has satellite imagery: TRAX maps can work with satellite imagery if you download birds eye satellite imagery to your internal memory of your GPS. With layers, you then can have a more optimized combination map vs the Hunt View solution.
