The Club offers a series of free training sessions in navigation each year. Non-members are welcome to try some sessions before joining the Club. On a walk, don’t hesitate to ask the leader for some tips on navigating. Prefer to teach yourself? Here are some useful resources:
Starting your GPS, position format, datum, waypoints and set-up
Includes links to manuals, free software, and to sources of digital maps.
How to set up your GPS to show latitude and longitude, as required by Emergency Services
Finding your way in the bush, by George Carter
The Club’s 2007 publication on navigation techniques.
