How so? My phone will download topos for any area I select. This weekending used it to log over 70 miles with airplane mode turned on. The topo maps and satellite images I used were great and handy. You can't use Google maps but the us Topo maps available show a hell of a lot more trails than any other map source I've found yet On Android I use us Topo maps pro. Works so well I've replaced my Garmin Colorado with it
This is interesting. How do I set this up?
I only want two things in my life to be dirty; my Jeep and my wife.
While in general I prefer the 430N over the 730N, I do miss the ability to save an individual bread crumb trail feature that the 730N has.
In the 430N you can only turn on/off the tracking with no ability to save. And, yes, it records EVERYWHERE you have been since enabling tracking then removes EVERYWHERE you have been when you turn it off. The 730N will also display Lat/Lon and elevation on the same(split) screen as the map while the 430N will not.
HOWEVER, the 430N WILL let you easily put in your own waypoints. I have over a dozen custom trails, identified by name, with around 500 waypoints. The 730N does NOT have that option.
are you serious? do you know nothing about GPS? if your vehicle can do it why cant your phone? think about it. i dont pay service for my garmin and you dont pay for service for your vehicle. try this. turn off your data connection and pull up google maps. it will find your exact location. just not download a map for that. if the map is on the phone does it need network conneciton? you may be in over your head until you do alot of reading on the subject.
Don't know what phone you have..but if I don't have cell service...Gps does not work...and when it does it sucks the battery.

Not to further steer this thread off-topic but I use maps from Trimble with my iPhone and it works great without cell coverage. I use it on hunts out where there is zero cell coverage for miles. GPS still works great. I do wish, however the 430N in my jeep could use breadcrumbs to follow and map trails that I don't know before I get there. Using the iPhone GPS does suck the battery down faster than I'd like. I usually only get 4 or 5 hours out of it before I have to plug it into the Jeep.

The 430N in my 2012 Grand Cherokee has a bread crumb feature. It's in Settings->Map->Trip Log.
My 2014 JKUR has it with the 430 N. Same as above Settings - Map - Trip log ON. You may need to go to to Menu - My Data - Clear trip log. My trip log was on the whole time and there were blue lines everywhere....Lol
I'll be honest I didn't know it would do that. Regardless it will be a backup to my Ipad running GAIA with a Duel Electronics GPS receiver. I am all about having backups.
