A training course on the use of phone GPS and Maps for navigation at Bluegum Swamp, Winmalee. Marchelle will be co-leading.
The training will cover:
- Use of phone Apps to work out where you are, to find waypoints and to follow a track
- How to find co-ordinates on a phone app and relate that to a topographical map
- Precautions and limitations of using phones and GPS devices in general
- How save and share waypoint and track files (GPX files)
If you already have a navigation app you are welcome to use it. Otherwise we will be recommending Gaia for the training.
We will plan to do a circuit of the Bluegum Swamp and Shaws Ridge trails which will be up to 9km.
