The weekly newsletter from GPS Training

Welcome to this week's newsletter from GPS Training.

Many thanks for all your kind words after we launched our new website earlier this week, it is very much appreciated.

Let's see what is going on in the world of outdoor GPS navigation

Your rucksacks!
Some great ideas

Many thanks to everybody who responded to last week's newsletter, letting us know what they carry in their rucksacks.

You gave some great suggestions, I know I got some great ideas.

I have put all of the replies below, in the video article on the website.

Some of my favorites are -

1. Cable ties

2. Plastic boot covers, for when you come across a pub!

3. Crocs

If you have anything to add please just leave a comment underneath the suggestions people gave and many thanks to those who contributed!
