You betcha it is! I love mine and all the Wyoming Game Wardens now have a Garmin with the chip in them and they are using it to determine trespassing complaints according to the one I've known out there for about ten years.

Hi everyone - first time poster here on LRH, I'm a newb

Anyhow in response the OP's question, I wouldn't pay for any Public Land GPS chip. You can just about find any type of Garmin map you desire for free at GPSFileDepot - Free Custom Garmin Maps, Ximage hosting, tutorials, articles and more for your GPSr

Or my personal favorite maps, if you're looking for a Montana map is Montana Topo - Public Lands

Enjoy!!

I ordered the South Dakota gpshuntingmaps.com and found out when I went hunting they don't have land owner names and who owns it. So that makes that chip no good for me very disappointed in product. When I ordered it it never said that the private land did not have land owner names on it, so make sure you check before u order

They had two versions of the program last year and you obviously didn't read the difference and ordered the lesser priced one that doesn't include the names. They have dropped that one now and only offer the $100 version that has names on it.

Well I will have to call and talk to another person because the person I talked to a month ago said that they haven't put any land owner names on it for South Dakota and said there would have to be requests put in by a number of people interested before they would do it. Thanks for the info I will call monday
