This practical guidebook explains how to get the best out of navigating with your GPS, and takes you through GPS navigation in a clear and structured way. It summarises how to navigate with a map and compass. The guide also looks at digital mapping, and how GPSs and mapping software can be used positively together.
Pete Hawkins trained as a geography teacher and taught in schools for a year before escaping to the Peak National Park’s Environmental Centre for an outdoor job. As a navigation instructor he has taught both beginners how to read a map and compass and the more experienced how to hone their navigation skills. He runs the Silva-sponsored Map and Compass Courses from his Peak District home.
