I'm more of a high tech guy but always like to carry an atlas just in case.

What do you have/use?

I have a Delorme for Colorado and just picked up the Garmin Montana gps now to load maps onto that

Delorme. Had to buy a new Colorado one yesterday as my old one went missing. Also have several other states I haven't used yet. I find it very handy to always have in the vehicle. Not the most detailed, but closer than most comprehensive printouts you'll find.

Looks like Delorme is the Atlas of choice from the old posts. Is that the best non-electronic bet for good maps of forest service roads in CO? I really need to get something to keep in the truck.

I like the Wells books as well as mvu maps that the forest service puts out. Trail damage has the .kmz files that orux will read. And the mvum's can be used with pdfmaps. I'm kinda on my tablet for the most part but I snag a paper map when I can find them of an area

I am just looking for something on paper for now. I was hoping to *easily* hack the Toyota Entune system and be able to download maps there but its not looking like that's probable so in the future I'll have to look into a tablet. I've tried to throw a few on my phone (I think pdfmaps) before but its just too small for easy use.

Yeah I keep them in cloud storage so if I forget my tablet I have my phone and the note 4 is big enough

I was at REI yesterday, spending my ginormous dividend ($5) and they had the Delorme and another brand. The Delorme seemed to be slightly better at having FS roads, not great, but its better than nothing so I grabbed one. The most shocking part was it was actually cheaper at REI than online. It was $20.

I have picked them up at Barnes and Noble for about that. There is a great map store in Denver close to downtown, can't remember the exact address but I am going to give an attempt to locate it.

I use a Delorme. I mark all the routes we've been on with a highlighter and sometimes pencil in some notes

Delorme for me. Delorme is a Maine-based company that got its start mapping the logging roads in the North Maine woods. Their "Maine Gazatteer" was an indispensable companion in the pre-GPS days. To his credit, founder David Delorme had the foresight to branch out geographically and technologically to become one of the driving forces in the industry. FYI, you can always find "a Delorme" tucked in between the transmission tunnel and passenger's seat in my vehicle.
