GPS Training - Garmin Day 2 - Get the best from your Garmin & Basecamp  


This course is for those who have already attended our 'Garmin GPS training day' or who have good GPS skills and wish to take them to a new level.


The day commences at 9.30am.


Please remember to bring along your GPS & cable if you’re using your own kit and boots and outdoor gear as this is a very hands on day with a large proportion of the time spent outdoors. Don’t worry we won’t be flogging you up hills all the walking will be at low level and easily achieved by the average walker.


We’re not very good at long lunches as you see; however there will be time for a break for Tea, Coffee and biscuits morning & afternoon.
