course notes

The aim of the course is to extend the basic GPS skills you may have learned on one of our 2 day Garmin GPS courses in a practical way on a day in the hills with one of our GPS experts. At the beginning of the day you will take part in a brief planning session for the days expedition to the hills, send the planned routes & tracks to your GPS either wirelessly or by cable, and then set out as a small group to put good GPS navigation practice as you spend a day on the Simonside Hills.

This training day is not for GPS beginners and demands a certain level of fitness as the days walking could reach 1,500 feet and will be at least 7 miles in length on local footpaths. If you are thinking of joining us you must bring suitable and adequate clothing, footwear, food & drink for a day in the hills and be prepared for whatever weather the day throws at us.

A great way tp put your skills into practice for those who have already been on our 2 day GPS course.
