Course Booking Page

Thank you for booking your place on one of our GPS courses. Here are some helpful points to make your course go smoothly;

What do I need to bring with me? 

  • Please bring waterproof boots and warm outdoor gear as the course will involve some practical work outdoors.
  • We do provide tea and coffee, but don't forget to bring your lunch.
  • Spare batteries for you GPS - you may find you use more than usual. 
  • If bringing your laptop for the Garmin course we highly recommend you also bring a mouse rather than using the touchpad.
  • Don't forget your usb cable if you are bringing your GPS with you!

Garmin Course Attendees

If you bring your own GPS unit, please make sure your GPS has the latest software version on it before coming to the course, and bring a cable so that we can download waypoints and routes into your system. Don't worry if there are problems with your GPS as we will loan you one to work with on the day. This will enable you to learn the principles that you can easily apply to your own model later.

If you have yet to buy a GPS, we advise you to wait until after the course. We are completely impartial experts and can help you to choose, and supply you with, the right model for your needs at the right price. A number of different GPS models will be available on the day for you to look at and handle. 

If bringing your own laptop please ensure you have downloaded the latest version of Basecamp software onto it. 

Garmin courses are two day -
Day 1 - 9.30 - 16.30
Day 2 - 9.30 - 16.30

Satmap Course Attendees

The course covers the practical side of using your GPS device and only a demonstration on the SatSync Software. Hence you do not need to bring a computer with you as we will not be training on the computer side of things on this 1 day practical course.

SatMap courses are one day - 9.30 - 16.30
