walk 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 South Downs in the company of GPS expert Ian Payne.

This training day is not for GPS beginners and demands a certain level of fitness as the days walking could reach 800’ (240metres) and will be at least 6 miles (10km) 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.

Our day is based at the village hall in Clayton just off the A23 and with easy walking distance of the South Downs. The day will start in the village hall where you meet up with your tutor Ian Payne the days objectives will be planned and discussed and GPS route/routes will be sent to your GPS device either by cable or wirelessly dependent on model.

The objective of the days walk will be the Chattri Monument a spot with fabulous views over the downs and surrounding area (inc Brighton and the sea). The monument is a commoration for the Indian soldiers who died in hospitals in Brighton during the Great War and were cremated at this place. Ian will tell you more about the monument on the day
