3 September 2013 Navigation Refresher #5: GPS1



Walk Description

This event was organised and led by Jenny and Rob H as part of their CBC Navigation Course:

Tuesday 3 September: Navigation Refresher #5: GPS1 - Setting up and position fix. Leaders: Jenny & Rob H.

Track Notes

Another excellent evening of theory covering the setup of GPSr and position fixing. I think that the most important issue covered (apart from setting up position format (MGRS is good) and map datum (locally, should be set to the datum of the map you are using - either GDA 94 or the equivalent WGS 84)) is the checking of a GPSr specified location against your map. Is it plausible?

There is a paper covering similar issues here.
