A whole bunch of Booyaa crew has them installed, and Jimmy has about everything you could want at the dunes marked.

I might have to talk to him about burning the maps he made onto a SD card for me

I am still working out how I want to mount mine.

So far my 540C has been great. Once you have it installed, I would recommend reading Page 106 of the manual. I changed the max points on a trail from 2,000 to 9,999 after I did one ride and the beginning of my route got wiped out.

It took a while to figure out why the freaking beginning of my ride disappeared off the map.

I think you really have to read the manual on this gadget to fully understand what it can do.

Thanks, a lot...I would really like to mount mine in a location like that, however, on the Teryx, it is a tad difficult. I am thinking it is going to have to be mounted to the cage, but we will see.

I have been going through the manual...I had heard there is a simulator for the 540C, however, have been unable to find it. Found simulators for a ton of them, just not the 540C

Try the LMS-520C download here.

It appears to be the same unit as the 540C.
