BackCountry Navigator XE is a Kickstarter project for mobile outdoor navigation software. The creator, Nathan Mellor, developed the original BackCountry Navigator app, which has been the #1 Maps & Navigation app on the Google Play Store for the past 6 years. In addition to improving the BackCountry Navigator app with the XE version, it will also be available on both iOS and the Web, in addition to Android.

Feature wise, the BackCountry Navigator XE app will feature a wide selection of maps, including topo maps, marine charts, and aerial photography. Overlays will also be provided, such as BLM Boundary maps, property maps, trail maps, and lake map contours, and offline storage of maps will be facilitated with a grid-based organization.

Additional features will include vector topo maps, cloud-based editing, and sharing of routes via links. Plus, as GPS isn’t tied to cellular and data coverage, users can download required maps and use their mobile devices’ on-board GPS to provide location tracking.

    Old West Gun Playing Cards

    Gun Websites has started a Kickstarter campaign for a deck of Old West Guns playing cards. Like the previous AK Playing Card Deck, the deck will feature various weapons from the ‘Old West’ era – period rifles, shotguns, revolvers, etc. Each card features a full color image, along with dates of production and additional info, such as the inventor, weapon’s nickname, barrel length, a life-size image of the ammunition the weapon was chambered for, and more. The classification of weapons will be separated via suits, which of course means these cards can also be used as a standard playing deck.
