    I have to visit a number of oil and gas wells in South Texas about every three Months
    Tried using the Sync3 nav but it is useless. So I’m looking for a good nav system for off-road that will also show the roads between sites.
    I need to be able to name the location road which is normally off a know road and also each well site.
    About 200 wells in about 10 different counties
    Also would be good if I could transferred the data to multiple devices

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    I use Gaia on an Ipad https://www.gaiagps.com/offroad/. It also works on an Android. You can download maps, including satellite maps, and mark you routes. I use a TOPO map, it shows mines and stuff, but I and not sure about wells.

    If your Ipad does not have a GPS (unless a cellular unit they don't) use the Garmin Blue Tooth one, they work well together.

    Take a look at the Magellan TRX7 CS. You can create custom routes via the website. Export and import .gpx files. Add way points , notes and photos to your track log.

    It got me all around Iceland, no cell towers anywhere.

    And other places we can not discuss.

    leadnav or mob armor GPS on an iPad pro with a cell modem and xgps160.

    lowrance won't do you any favors in tx.

    I have both. wish I would have saved the money that I spend on a lowrance, except when I'm south of the border.
