Embarking on a powersports adventure is not cheap. The average Polaris consumer, for instance, lives in a dual-income household and has “good” credit, according to the powersports company’s Q2 2022 earnings report.

Having good credit is often key to getting started in the world of powersports. JD Power estimates that the average price of a new UTV, which is an ATV with at least two seats side by side, is $15,626. These vehicles can range from $4,000 to $30,000, according to JD Power.

And then there are the accessories.

Synchrony Bank is offering a little help in that area, with the new Synchrony Outdoors credit card. Accepted at powersports dealers and gas stations, the card offers a great way to fund your hobby. The credit card offers 6 months promotional financing on purchases of $199 or more, no annual fee, and $0 fraud liability, The card cannot be used to purchase or finance ATVs or motorcycles or any vehicle with a vehicle identification number; this card is designed for all the add-ons that help powersports enthusiasts enjoy the ride.

We’ve grown to rely on our phone’s map app for navigation. But often, you’ll find yourself with no signal on the trails. That’s when a handheld GPS is crucial. Riders love the rugged Garmin eTrex 32x, with a 2.2″ bright color display, preloaded maps, plus 8 GB of memory to download your own maps. Two AA batteries last up to 25 hours in GPS mode so you can get plenty of riding time in before you need to change or recharge the batteries.
