Search and Rescue efforts in Douglas County doubled over the last year due partly to – FAULTY GPS.  With a smartphone in hand, you have a valuable GPS device to help you find your way but you need to know how to use it and when not to.  This class will teach you how to use the phone GPS to navigate in the wilderness.  You will learn the basics of GPS technology, how to apply it to the outdoors, which apps are recommended for outdoor navigation, and when you should stop depending on the tech.

All phones welcome.
