The increasing popularity of recreational activities, adventure sports, and Overlanding has aided the global off-road vehicle market, which is expected to reach $22.61 billion by 2030.

As more and more people gear up for outdoor adventures, they are also becoming more aware of safety and planning. Therefore, this has led to the development of several outdoor navigation products.

However, the current products do not offer comprehensive features and fail to emerge as an all-in-one solution for Overlanders. 

Fortunately, Overland Bound emerges as the one-stop solution for every vagabond wishing to connect, plan, and go out to make memories.

It is an all-in-one adventuring platform that functions as a social network, trip planner, and resource map. Moreover, It is a navigation tool for explorers.

Most importantly, the platform was created to make adventure accessible to everyone. In addition, it also intends to make vehicle-based travel (Overlanding) as convenient and safe as possible.
