My basemap has rivers, lakes, etc. Surprisingly, it has a very extensive road inventory including the backroads, logging roads, etc. We still have a bit of catching before we get to the good ones that are offered for the US. But I am told they are coming. Funny on the Mt Gardner hike, we used the GPS to help us decide whether to take the logging road back or take this other trail. I saw a big ass loop switchback for the road which inspired us to take the more direct trail. It is a toy though. As you note, many of the trails we're on are pretty well marked, etc. I've been thinking about trying some more daring off trail stuff though where it could come in handy.
