If your GPS finds itself back at the truck more often than not, it's probably because you have the Roam Multi-State SD Chip For Garmin GPS devices. This microSD chip comes pre-loaded with all the information you need to know whether you're driving to a new trailhead or backpacking deep into a remote wilderness area. Great for hiking, backpacking, fishing, hunting, and road trips, your Garmin GPS will always be by your side when this chip is attached.
Broken into two regions, the Rockies North option covers Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana, while the Rockies South region covers Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico. No matter which chip you choose, each comes pre-loaded with 24K topographic maps complete with color coded public lands marking land ownership, points of access, and campsites (both developed and primitive). Detailed road and trail information provides names, numbers, type, and location of trailheads. The chip is also compatible with Garmin BaseCamp software for both Mac and PC, so you can transfer your tracks, waypoints, and other useful information to your computer.

Best thing to happen to my GPS!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Amazing! Just took ROAM for a spin on the river and backcountry trails. Without the chip, my GPS is obsolete. What I thought was a useful collection of information about where I was and what was nearby was actually just like describing a book without actually reading it. The ROAM chip took the difference between no GPS and having a GPS and doubled it again!
The level of detail is astonishing. ROAM turned backcountry trails into a street-by-street navigation. There were trails I didn't even know where there along my usual haunts and sure enough, there was a trail or overgrown logging road from decades ago just sitting there buried in underbrush.
In the old trail maps I've got are mimicked on the GPS including their name. While GPS technology is already essential, the ROAM chip takes the handheld GPS to an entirely new level of use in the backcountry. I usually travel across blank space on the GPS screen, but now I have a defined trail with a clear picture of where the trail goes and what other trails are around. Plus there's the 24k topo. Plus there's the geographic features. Plus there's the general land ownership.
I pulled the chip out just to see what it was like after using the chip for a couple trips. My GPS looked blank compared to all the data on this chip. Frankly, I cannot imagine using my GPS without it. It's just that good!
