Learn how to use your Global Positioning System (GPS) device with Dave Pylman in the Mojave Desert of Joshua Tree National Park. GPS units grow in popularity each year, but GPS technology can be challenging for beginners use! On Saturday, Pylman will teach participants GPS basics including how to navigate through the myriad of menus, options, and features found on their devices. Sunday, the class will move to field, focusing on hands on learning experiences through practical exercises. Participants will pinpoint their location, mark waypoints, plot courses and create routes in the wilderness of the park. Don’t miss this interactive class and the knowledge to add GPS technology to your navigation toolbox! Participants need to provide their own Garmin GPS devices. Please contact us for questions on GPS units.
