Default Red Pine Mapping Anybody use them?

I found a deal at red pine mapping for two states of snowmobile maps for 40 bucks and was wondering if anybody has used them or other trail maps for their gps systems. I have a Garmin Nuvi which is compatible with them. Do you they have good detail of forest and logging roads? I mostly ride in Wisconsin and Upper Michigan so I was gonna get those two.
Thanks for any info?

I have redpine NY and Maine maps. They have been awesome, except for a few local connector trails, which are marked and maintained, but not on GPS. But, to get where you want to go, its awesome. Trail numbers are on there as well. I am not sure about your areas, but my experience has been good. Lightning fast shipping too

I have the redpine MI map. Haven't used it too much yet. But I have noticed some trails were mismarked. So far we've gotten where we were going, but had to referance a paper map to confirm where we were once.

I ordered it cause its a good deal. Marked trails I'm not worried about cause I know my way around the trails in the UP. I bought this so I can find my way around the forest roads and do more off trail riding without worrying if I'm gonna get lost. Hopefully it works good for that. Thanks for the info guys.

No, it doesn't work well for that. Only marked trails are shown. You'll need to record your tracklogs and download them into your personal map files.

That sucks dude told me they had detailed maps of the forest roads. I suppose you'd wanna do a track log anyways but he led me to believe it would have the forest roads on there.....

Actual roads are shown in the gps, but not the unmarked stuff.

What nuvi do you have. I picked up the nuvi 500 at Cabelas last week for $199.99. The 500 has A basic topo map that shows a little more detail than just the basic nuvi. I just downloaded the red pine mapping new York map. Panning around the map a little bit and I like it so far. And the 500 is also waterproof. BONUS!! Gonna put some miles on this weekend hopefully, so I'll let ya know what I think of it after I put some miles on it.
