Garmin Hunt View Maps

Garmin Hunt View Maps

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.

  1. MTTRAX contains Block Management Area lands and Open Fields information; Hunt View does not.
  2. MTTRAX can run on any Garmin which accepts a memory card such as Automotive Nuvis; Hunt View only works on handhelds.
  3. MTTRAX has hunting units for Elk, Bear, Goat, Antelope, Sheep, and Moose; Hunt View does not.
  4. MTTRAX contains contact telephone numbers on 50% of private land records; Hunt view does not.
  5. MTTRAX is a layered map allowing features to be turned off and on; Hunt View is not
  6. MTTRAX is updated twice per year; Hunt View will not provide updates. The product must be purchased again.
  7. MTTRAX contains fishing, hiking, camping and other data such as Fishing Access Sites; Hunt View does not.
  8. MTTRAX can be purchased individually or as part of the 8 state Western Bundle including Montana; Hunt View is a single state only.
  9. 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.
