How to navigate The Crusher with Avenza

One of our ultra runners, Thomss Myers, put together this tip for you.

Step One

Download the Avenza Maps App on your phone

Step Two

Get the map.
Go to
Scroll down the until you see: Michigan – Upper Peninsula

  • Central UP
    • For Smart Phones: Add to the Avenza App
    • Click on: Add to the Avenza App

This will bring you to: – Michigan’s Central UP (MI Map 33 – 68)

  • Scroll down until you see: Get this Map Bundle (high-lighted in red)
    • Click on this – on my Iphone it’ll ask to open in “Avenza Maps” OPEN
    • Then on top left you will see button to INSTALL click INSTALL

This may sound redundant and it kind of is but is what has to be done (at least on my Iphone X)

On the bottom of the Avenza App click on – Tap on “My Maps”

Then on Top of the App you’ll see icon that looks like “Profile” tap this

Then you’ll see button for “Purchase History” click this

This will take you to the maps you installed from (MI Map 33 – 68)

  • You will need to install Maps 34 through 41 for the Crusher 50
  • Once you click on install my Iphone shows a “Success” click OK
  • Now this map will show up on your “My Maps” repeat those steps to get all the maps for The Crusher 50

Once The Maps 34 – 41 are installed you can use them at anytime even on “Airplane Mode” to conserve battery while out on the course. I have tested this method while out on the course and it works amazingly well.

If anyone has questions they can call, text or email me at any time.

It’s all about community.

906 Adventure Team is a 501c3 Non-Profit based in Marquette, Michigan. Since 2014 we have been creating outdoor adventure experiences for youth through Adventure Bike Club and events like Polar Roll, The Crusher, and Marji Gesick. Our take on life is pretty simple – it’s an adventure. In life (and adventure) stuff doesn’t always go to plan. Things go wrong. Bad things happen to good people and you don’t overcome it by complaining or pointing fingers. The truth is adversity brings out the best of us – by taking us down unknown paths to find it. 


906 Adventure Team uses revenue from the events to support trail organizations and create more youth Adventure Teams. 


The Marji Gesick will donate $27,000 to local trails this year, bringing total trail donations since 2015 to $216,000. 


In 2022, with the help of corporate partners, we invested $40,000 in youth programs for three new Adventure Team communities. Resilience, confidence, community, and a sense of belonging have never been more important than it is for kids today. Adventure Teams help them “find their people”, the way you feel like you’ve found yours at Marji. 


We want you to know when you support 906 Adventure Team and the events you’re making life better here in Marquette County and in communities across the Midwest.
