Want to learn how to use your smartphone for navigation, anywhere, anytime?
Bushwalking Victoria is conducting a workshop on how to use your smartphone for navigation on Sunday, 16 May (GPS owners could use this course to practise their skills with their device).
In this workshop, we will look at how GPS satellite navigation works – the theory, practicalities, advantages and limitations.
We will discuss a variety of smartphone mapping/navigation apps, including Avenza, maps.me and Terra Map.

Detailed course notes, activity sheets, and a map will be supplied.
IMPORTANT: After registration, participants will be sent detailed instructions on phone setup. Preparation and pre-reading must be completed before the workshop. Participants must already be familiar with basic map/compass navigation and be conversant with their own electronic device e,g. be able to update software and install new apps.
