GPS Training Online

Outdoor GPS Resources

Garmin, SatMap and Memory Map

The GPS Training online resource gives you step by step guides and videos for all current Garmin, SatMap and Memory Map GPS units, everything you need to get to grips with your Outdoor GPS unit.

I often get asked by people who walk with Footsteps about handheld GPS units and is it worth getting one for themselves. They are very useful items of kit and at the very least they will always give you a precise Ordnance Survey grid reference if you need one.

They are much more than that though and there are a bewildering number of makes and models available to buy. So if you want to understand the technology before you go and get one, then GPS Training Online is the perfect place to start. You can register for FREE and create your own account from the website. Once you’ve done that, you can begin to develop your knowledge, which will in turn help you to decide which GPS unit is the right one for you.
