Getting my GPS ready.

4th September 2019 0 By admin

Spent some time today loading waypoints onto my GPS device. The Garmin inReach will be one of my back up GPS units but it can perform a few other tasks too. As well as being a navigation aid, it can be used to send an SOS signal should I need it, and also I can send and receive text messages both using the handheld device and also by pairing it with my smartphone all thanks to the Iridium satellite network.
Quite a handy little piece of kit.

So glad that the top waypoint you can see for the South Pole will read closer to 700 miles at the start as opposed to almost 10000 from here!
