Nav lessons in using US Topo maps using UTM Grid
« on: October 19, 2011, 01:14:56 AM »
For our American friends and anyone planning to navigate in the States.

A great explanation to the UTM Grid.

"We do not belong to those who only get their thought from books, or at the prompting of books - it is our custom to think in the open air, walking, leaping, climbing or dancing, of lonesome mountains by preference, or close to the sea, where even the paths become thoughtful." Friedrich Nietzsche

Thanks again Adi for providing such great links.

If you are travelling to the USA then TopoPointUSA is such a cost effective maping to use on your satnav. I created detailed instructions how to use this program, not all of which were published in the book, so I will put them all into a pdf and load up on to the resource page.
