Product Information

Description

GPS Made Easy tells you everything you ever wanted to know about using hand held Global Positioning System receivers for accurate navigation in the outdoors -- how GPS works, features of all common receivers, and practical examples of use in the outdoors. Clear language and illustrations demystify GPS for every user. The well known latitude / longitude grid is explained and its use demonstrated with a GPS receiver. The Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) grid, little used in the United States, is completely demonstrated allowing any GPS user to easily use a grid that relates directly to distance on the ground. The fifth eddition adds the use of vehicle GPS recievers, navigating in harsh weather conditions and integrating GPS systems with computer software.
