walk notes

This course gets you out in the countryside to learn in a practical manner how to use and gain more confidence in using a GPS.

If you don’t have a GPS we can loan you one at no extra cost, but if you have your own we can help you ‘fine tune’ your unit to give you the information you want.

After meeting at Rothbury we will head off towards the Simonside. Initially we will follow a pre programmed route on the GPS before we start to manually input waypoints as we really get to grips with these clever pieces of equipment.

The day will be tailored according to the weather, group and the skill level of individuals.

It will be a fun and informative day.
