I'm using the Bad-Elf GPS and Gaia plus MotionX GPS (as a backup) and so far am impressed with both, Prefer GAIA over gps mainly because of download times for offline use. Let me know how the Dual Navagation works, might switch over to it and keep it as a backup.

I booked the Palm Canyon Resort for Friday.

For those looking for a room: Palm Canyon was the least expensive at $109.
The 'managers special' at Borrego Springs Resort is currently $126. The last place was $169.

CB 8, Are you planning on meeting us in the Circle in Borrego or do you want to meet us out off the S22? I can get approximate GPS for where we will be dropping down. Borrego is 30 mins from where you will be and our drop in point will only be 5-10 mins towards Borrego.

I know that area very well. I can meet anywhere. Ill most likely stay by the obstacle course on the north side by the entrance. Truckhaven seems a little out of the way and no one will be around. I like a few people within ear shot. Unless you're planning a coyote canyon run I don't see a need to go into town. But I can if you want.

Do you want the GPS points on where we are getting off the highway so you dont have to drive back to town on Saturday Morn?

Anyone need JK stock headlights? Replaced mine with Truck Lites. Stocks off my 2012 have 15K miles on them- work as well as the stock ones can. $50??? I'll bring 'em to Ocotillo if anyone wants them.
