GPS Training - Sales, supports and training

GPS Training is based in Northumberland, in the North East of England.

We are currently the largest independent retailer of Outdoor GPS units and also the largest GPS trainer in the country, delivering courses nationwide as well as online.

Natural choice; there are many good reasons why we are the natural choice for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts. For most of our customers whilst price is important; the most important reason they give for buying from GPS Training is personal service and the ability to talk to a real person.

We don't sell boxes; we believe our job is to make sure that you receive all the advice you need to make an informed choice on which GPS and mapping package meets you needs. You will always receive genuine advice from us and the opportunity talk through all the options available to you with no pressure to buy.

Of course we would like you buy from us; we understand that you wouldn't consider buying from us if we were uncompetitive, which is the reason why we try very hard to offer prices that match the GPS & OS mapping offers available from the major outdoor retailers plus our own unique offers all backed up by online GPS training.

But for many of our clients it’s the after sales service that is key

We're at the end of the phone if you need help

We are always delighted to receive calls from prospective customers wishing to have a chat about the various different options on offer that might suit their requirements. We understand that most people wish to shop around to get the best deal, and discussing which GPS is right for you is very important, it can save you making expensive mistakes.

To help you make the right choices we have put together a series of guides with links to what we think some general information on how the GPS System works which you might find helpful when making choices, information and reviews on the bestselling GPS in the Market, and which Mapping links best to the GPS of your choice.

We have a full range of different models for our clients to use, and include free GPS loan if required on all our courses.
