We are new owners of a Jeep but we have been using GPS'rs for about 3 years. We are geocachers and love to walk the trails. And now having a Jeep we can drive the forest roads in our search for caches. Having "tracks" is important when hiking in the woods.
I agree with you. Google Earth is a great tool and a great way to mark waypoints.
We have three Garmin's. A 1450LMT for the car, a GPSMAP 60CSx handheld and a eTrex10 handheld. I use Garmin's Mapsource and I load topo maps into it. It works great for geocaching so it should work for Jeep Geocaching.
Happy trails to you.

Trail GPS Tracks
Do any of you guys and gals keep GPS tracks of the trails that you ride? I had a Polaris RZR for a long time and now we drive the Jeep more. I always kept a track of the trails I did so that when I would have a good data base of different types of trails. When I would go to an area I would upload the tracks into my gps as a guide to the area. I mostly have trails in the Southern Nevada, Utah, California and Arizona areas. I still get emails from the RZR forums asking for tracks in a certain area. When I get back from a ride I upload the tracks to Google Earth. I have also used Google Earth to trace out a new trail and up load that to the GPS before I go out. It helps make sure I stay out of the Wilderness Areas and such. Just thought I would throw that out there.
