Sled GPS is focused on delivering an affordable Powersports navigation kits. We offer fully customized kits, pre-programmed with trail maps to suit your needs.
Our standard kits utilize a 6" Garmin Nuvi. Be aware that the Nuvi is not rated as waterproof from the factory. However, a bead of silicone is installed between the factory case and the screen to prevent snowmelt from seeping in. We also offer water resistant mounting case options to isolate the Garmin from the elements. These are trail proven setups with many issue free miles. Battery life on the Nuvi is extremely short while exposed to low temperatures. The unit must remain plugged in to the provided accessory outlet.
The Nuvi is detachable and extremely easy to remove from the mount. We recommend bringing the Nuvi inside overnight and during rain.
SLED GPS VS OEM KITS
We offer a much cheaper and larger screen alternative to the OEM Ski-Doo kit. Ski-Doo utilizes the 5" Garmin Zumo for the Gen 4 and a 4" Garmin Montana for the XM/XS. Sled GPS provides a 6" Garmin Nuvi.
Be aware that the Nuvi is not rated as waterproof from the factory. However, a bead of silicone is installed between the case and the screen to prevent snowmelt from seeping in. We have personally tested this setup without silicone for 1,000 miles with no issues. The silicone adds an additional layer of protection. In the event that the Nuvi was to fail, a replacement unit is $120 and the programmed map card can be swapped over. You could replace the unit 7 times before reaching the price of the Zumo or 5 times before reaching the cost of the Montana.

After purchasing the OEM kit, you will still need to mount the cradle to the glove box extension, source and purchase maps, update your Garmin, install your trail maps and set routing preferences.
