Peter Judd and Simon Brown are market leaders in providing GPS training courses and they have now brought this wealth of experience to the printed page.
“The step-by-step guides ... are really useful, being written by people who seem to have an ability to explain not just what you need to do but why. Virtually everything you can do with your GPS is covered in a logical stage by stage approach using screen diagrams that show you what you should be seeing on the screen.
I think this book is well worth the money. It is nearly 200 pages long and virtually every page has something of use to the reader. In my view if you buy this book you will not be disappointed.”
