Blown belts are one of the most common mechanical issues with UTV’s. The main reason belts fail is because of heat. If you push the belt system too far by running it above the recommended temperature it will fail. Now with the new belt temp sensor form rugged routes you can monitor your belt temperature and spend less time fixing your UTV and more time riding with your friends! watch multi-time off-road champion Mike Cafro show you how easy it is to install and connect to your Lowrance GPS system the rugged routes belt temp sensor to your UTV. Mike shows you how to install your rugged routes step by step as well as what tools you will need to make your install easier.
I have recently gotten new faster software as well as more computer hardware to spread the load and speed up map processing. Offering custom maps with fast turn around times has always been an end goal of mine. Although I still have some improvements to do on my end to streamline the process, the recent upgrades are a huge step in the right direction.
I don’t know how long I’ll keep this trial period going for, but atleast I’m opening it up and seeing how this all goes. Feel free to reply to this e-mail with any questions you may have, otherwise please view the video and purchase your custom map here: https://ruggedroutes.com/custom-satellite-imagery-lowrance-off-road-maps.html

The new Infrared UTV Belt Temp Sensor for Lowrance GPS Units is now available!
This infrared belt temp sensor is an easy install accessory for Lowrance HDS and Elite Ti GPS Units. It simply connects to the N2K network just like a Point-1 Baja Antenna, and displays your CVT Belt Temp right on the Lowrance GPS screen. Keep an eye on your belt temp in order to adjust your driving style or as an aid in clutch tuning for prolonging the life of your CVT Belt.
Simply drill a 3/8″ – 1/2″ hole in the plastic belt cover above the center of your belt, and stick on the sensor with the lens centered over the hole. The sensor contours to the belt cover with a 3/16″ thick waterproof closed cell foam & easily sticks on with a high strength waterproof adhesive by 3M.
Install on a clean plastic surface, and hold down for 30 seconds. Wait 24 hours to fully adhere.
*Compatible with Gen2 or Newer HDS Units, and Elite Ti 7″ Or Larger. Not Compatible with Elite-5 Ti.

This is a new product that I’ve been working on for some time now and want to get some feedback. please post comments below the video the YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQ20XCJKrDk
In short, This product uses an infrared sensor to measure the temperature of the CVT drive belt, and sends the temperature to the Lowrance GPS to be displayed as a data overlay. There aren’t any modifications required to the Lowrance itself, just enable the proper overlay. The infrared temp sensor hooks up via a single cable into the NMEA 2000 network for quick and simple install.
