Welcome! I'm new here myself, but born and raised on the island. So far it's been just some light offloading with the family. Just recently started mapping out some areas in the Port Renfrew area, and the Carmanah Walbran area. Port Alberni has some nice areas to explore as well. Lots of little lakes and rivers to check out all over the place. The back roads map book for Vancouver island is a good place to start.
Beautiful pics! You should post up your progress on the tear drop trailer. I'd be curious to see how it goes!
My first trips were with the VI BRMB, still use it too! I can't speak for the BRMP in Garmin, but I use it in Gaia, and it's very good. I plot the bulk of my routes in the BRMB, and toggle between the satellite layer for gates. All of my driving is done in the BRMP layer. It's easy to follow, and looks better than some of the other layers.
I personally like the mounted 10" tablet for the large screen. Only drawback so far with Gaia, is that she doesn't speak to me (that I'm aware of).
Super jealous of those pics! Looks like a blast. I did a 3 nighter at Gracie a couple weeks ago almost.
+1 for gaia as well. I've been using gaia for a little while now, and it's pretty easy to use. I just started to notice a little icon when zoomed in on the satellite layer that almost appears to represent a gate. Can anyone confirm? Just browsing it last night, I came across one on Weeks Main, shortly after you make the turn from Butler Main towards Leech Falls. These icons are all over though. It's a great feature if these are in fact marked gate locations. It will save me a lot of hassle planning trips.
