Description

NEW! GPS – How to navigate your navigational tool

Join is for an informal, hands on, discussion of how to navigate the GPS unit’s menus. We will be focusing our discussion on the Garmin GPSMAP 64 unit, but the many functions and features in this unit are transferable to other GPS units. We will be working with the datums, position formats and calibration of the GPS altimeters and compass. More so too, how to set up the scroll bars and menu features to make accessing these important features easier. Bring your own GPS unit, share tricks and tips you have learned. Our goal is to raise your understanding of how to navigate this important tool.
