It does so in an easy to understand manner.

I use my GPS for wilderness navigation and mountaineering., so I wanted a book that would show me specifically how to use my GPS features in those settings.
Steven J. Heikkila
This is a great little book for those of us just starting out with a GPS and need more than the teeny instructions that come with a GPS.

I'm an alpine climber and have had a Garmin GPS for a few years now, however, the user guide materials leave a lot to be desired. I wanted more of a practical use guide for navigating in the field and also for plotting courses on my PC and then using them in the field. I really was not interested in GPS use in a car, or airplane, or a kayak, etc. I use my GPS for wilderness navigation and mountaineering., so I wanted a book that would show me specifically how to use my GPS features in those settings. I ended up researching and purchasing several promising looking books that claimed to fit the bill. This one is far and away the best one. The instructions--many of them based on practical scenarios--are excellent, as are the images and screencaptures (the screencaptures of GPS user screens are mostly from Garmin GPSs, so its all the more user friendly for Garmin users.

This is an excellent resource to learn how GPS works and also how to navigate using TOPO maps and a compass. The author provides great advice on how to prepare for navigating and how not to just rely on electronics to get where you are going.

This book gives a great overview of the GPS system, how it was developed and the terminology associated with it. For someone who doesn't have a great deal of experience with a GPS I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. It explains the various features common to most GPS units and explains the uses for them. It goes over the various models and features available and towards the end gets a little more in depth than I needed.

Overall a good beginners book that will get you on track.

I already knew how to work my GPS, but when I thummbed through this book, I realized that this author had done his homework. I was introduced to the inner concepts of how the GPS actually work, which was interesting because I normally skip that part and get right to the source, The author made it so interesting, that once I started I couldn't stop! This is a great book especially if you haven't already purchased a GPS yet. He gives you insight into the availiable features, which if i had, I would not have purchased my current GPS. It definitely filled in a lot of gaps in my working knowledge. Definitely worth the purchase.

I've had my Garmin GPS about a year and learned to do a few things with it from the user's manual along the way. The manual is, however, disappointing in its inability to get the user to some competent level of GPS operation. "GPS Made Easy" is just the opposite. It is logical in its organization and precise in telling the reader how to operate the unit for whatever outdoor activity they fancy. I wish I had bought the book first, read it, and then bought the GPS unit.

Recommended to me by the fellow at REI and I found it useless. Poorly written, hard to read. I recommend "Outdoor Navigation with GPS" by Stephen Hinch instead.

I purchased several books on GPS navigation. This book has good information. Worth the purchase. One book that is worth adding to your library.
