Ordnance - the word is Ordnance, not Ordanance.
It's ok.

It's the big club in the area but there are a lot of smaller ones. They have decent map routes.

If you're into off road, the Vietnam trails in Milford is one of the best around, 50 acres and 15 miles of all kinds of off road trails and it's free.

There are loads of decent trails though, quite a few around Stow/Acton/Sudbury/Berlin in the metrowest area.

There's an abandoned village and woods that is supposed to be good, I've not been yet, but it's in the north of the state, towards Newbury Port and Andover I think, but there are quite a few here.

I like the national geographic maps, though just not as good as an OS map.

You can maps for a GPS as well Garmin has a good range though it's $$$.

Decent map apps for smartphones are killing off the dedicated GPS market. Most of them allow you to download maps for offline usage, be useless if they didn't where I live since so many trails are a 30+ minute drive from phone coverage.

I don't think you need network coverage for them to work though. They use GPS.

Correct, I thought the network connection thing was brought up to be about actually downloading the maps. Network location positioning is far less accurate than GPS in general, unless you are in a city with tall buildings.

Oh yes, I see it now...the gps will tell your position but you'll still need the cellular connection to acquire the map layout unless you have it preloaded.
