From the Author
When I started using GPS for my own backcountry travels, I quickly discovered that not much information was available to the average backcountry GPS enthusiast. Once I set about satisfying my own curiosity, it didn't take long to see the value in sharing this information with other GPS enthusiasts - hence this book. My goal was to provide a thorough yet easy to use reference on all aspects of personal navigation with GPS. I also felt it was important to start from scratch, and not assume any prior knowledge or skills on the part of the reader. Consequently, I believe this book will be of value to both beginning land navigators and seasoned GPS users. I hope that's your judgement too!
