John Gwinnup introduction of speaker:
Jim Roode, Finding your way around a handheld GPS
With the advent of affordable handheld GPS systems, navigation has taken a giant leap forward. The days of navigating to your wilderness destination using a map and compass are now greatly supplemented by GPS systems -- and you can use the same setup to find your way back to a favorite fishing hole.
Developed by the Department of Defense, GPS devices used to be accurate within 30 feet or so, limiting their usefulness for fishing. That's ancient history: now a good handheld device will take you within a few feet or your destination, day or night, land or water.
Breakout sessions: (IMPORTANT: these conversations will be used to plan the early spring fishing calendar. Bring your ideas.
