MyGis RER: Can't turn off radio and leave NAV on!

Ok, this may be the [email protected]$$ thread of the week, but....

I've been "gifted" a MyGig RER and I've got everything workin, Sat radio transferred, NAV humming. Now, how in hell do I turn the bloody radio OFF while leaving the NAV ON? Only way I could figure it out was to put it on Disc, with no disk in the player. *#[email protected]!

Either that or set the source to Bluetooth. But trust me, use the RER Nav for a few weeks and you'll switching back to Waze or Google on your phone, or even a standalone Garmin.

you can just turn the radio volume all the way down and leave the nav volume up. I like the 430N navigation

Lol! I really liked the cheap little GArmin 1300 I had installed. We'll see if I stick with this thing.

I had various Garmin units and, like I said, the base maps were actually pretty good for well-known trails, plus you can buy 100K and 20K topo maps with trails marked for many models. IDK if that's still true. I had a Lowrance iWay 500 about 15 years ago that actually had a 20GB HDD inside (tiny compared to MicroSD cards today, but back then it was state of the art). Thing was built like a tank, too, probably weighed 4 pounds. I converted and uploaded some Topo maps of my area and it worked great, but it was a huge PITA. Sold it to get a unit with better street navigation, and regretted it ever since.

The Lowrance HDS-7 is the successor to iWay, but it's intended for marine use. You can buy very nice maps for it from www.RuggedRoutes.com for certain states (based on the FunTreks trail maps). Spendy, though, about $1200 for the unit and maps.

If I lived closer to places with wheeling on public land, I'd probably go with a Magellan TR7 today. Problem in the NE is there aren't really any public trails to wheel on, except for a very few Class 6 roads that you need to find through word of mouth. Almost all the wheeling is on private land or pay-for-play parks. Coverage is great, though, in national forests and BLM areas.
