In our Christmas banner above we are featuring the Garmin Oregon 700.

If you have looked at our video reviews looking at the best budget, top-end, and large screen GPS units in the run-up to Christmas 2020, you will see I rate the Garmin Oregon 700 as the best top-end touch screen unit currently on the market - watch those video reviews here.

Top Tip - Garmin
Viewing your Birdseye Mapping

Garmin's Birdseye Select Vouchers are a great way to get some 1:25k OS Mapping on to your GPS device.

Your Garmin GPS device will always as default view maps that are loaded on an SD card in your device over the any mapping on your internal storage.

If your GPS device has maps installed on a SD card that covers the same area as your 1:25k Birdseye download, you must first disable these maps for your 1:25k mapping to come into view.

Go into Setup- Map - Configure Maps or Map Information - Select the maps on your SD card to disable.
Remember to repeat the process when you need to re-enable the maps on your SD card.

If you have downloaded any Satellite imagery using a Birdseye Subscription the same principle applies.
GPS Training Podcast

I speak to many of you on the phone each week, often as people are thinking about upgrading to a new unit.

It is great to hear that so many of you listen to the GPS Training Podcast.

As the Podcast is a long-form format (i.e. 1 hour an episode), it gives us plenty of time to dig deep and discuss, honestly, our thoughts of the latest products and what is going on in the world of Outdoor GPS navigation.

Listen to our podcast here.

Please do buy in plenty of time
Ensure you receive it before Christmas

If you listen to the GPS Training podcast you may have heard me talk about the supply chain this year.

With the year that we have just had, the supply chain of so many goods is not as robust as it should be for this time of year.

We have had a number of people calling and asking if we have x or y in stock, but then two days later all our stock has gone.

Please, please, please if you want something from us this Christmas and we have it in stock please do get it.

I know many other retailers have let down so many customers, to date we have not.

But I am a little fearful of having some of those conversations with people during the week leading up to Christmas.

Recording a Breadcrumb Trail

Leaving your GPS turned on for the duration of a walk you can record a breadcrumb trail of where you walk to keep as a record.

This breadcrumb trail recording is also a great function to use if you need to backtrack and retrace your route back to the start by following the trail markers.

Before you start a walk you should first reset the Trip Log computer and then start your recording as follows.

Goto Trip Log screen - Select Menu - Reset All - Yes to confirm Reset
Select Start for the breadcrumb trail to start.

Make sure in Main Menu - Settings - Screen Data Options - Trail Marker Size is set to Medium or Large.

As you walk you will now see a serious of blue dots being left behind you - at the end of your walk Goto Trip Log - Select Stop and if you want to save the trail Select Menu - Convert Trail to Track.
And Finally ............

Thanks for reading the latest GPS Training newsletter and we look forward to helping you choose your next GPS unit or seeing you on one of our courses.

Please remember, all our GPS training courses are running as normal.

Yours,
Jon and all the GPS Training team
