It even includes fun solo and team games that utilize GPS. Starting with essential definitions such as UTM coordinate systems, position formats, and map datums, and moving on to creating "waypoints," and using your GPS with a computer, this succinct book teaches you what you really need to know for outdoor GPS use, including basic map-and-compass skills and primitive navigation techniques that you can use if your GPS unit fails.
Advanced techniques are also covered, such as creating custom maps, and new technologies are discussed, including using GPS-enabled mobile phones, (and why they won’t always find your position in the wilderness) and how to use GPS with Google Earth and Google Maps. With years of experience as a GPS instructor, Hinch is well-versed in all aspects of navigation and GPS use, and he covers them all in a jargon-gree, easy-to-follow style.
