NAVIGATE YOUR WAY ON YOUR NEXT HIKING TRIP!

This clinic is designed to introduce members to GPS and their use in backcountry navigation.

  • Understand how the Global Positioning System functions;
  • Understand features and functions common to all GPS standalone devices;
  • Learn how to apply these features and functions in a wilderness navigation context;
  • Distinguish the features offered for mobile devices (i.e., smartphones) from those offered by outdoor-specific units;
  • Be familiar with the range of GPS devices available, their various additional features and the possible application of those features to specific activities;
  • Be familiar with proper GPS care;
  • Be familiar with other navigation resources available at MEC, as well as any additional navigation programming offered.
