We will cover mainly Garmin devices, Garmin Maps and Garmin software (Basecamp) on the day.  The talk will briefly cover GPS Terminology, The human quest for adventure, GPS Constellations, GPS applications, and GPS maps.  After that brief introduction the talk will get into more detail on manipulating travel adventure with the Garmin Basecamp software, followed by practical application of the software and then a practical outdoor adventure with your Garmin device.

Join us for an exciting day where Jakob Jordaan will share his skills and knowledge using Basecamp to plan your next overlanding trip. Please note that this software is compatible with certain Garmin GPS’s only. For the day you will need to bring:

  • Your laptop/Mac or PC pre-loaded with Basecamp (freely downloadable off the internet)
  • Laptop power cable
  • Your Garmin GPS loaded with any suitable routing software (see note below for GPS types)
  • Chair and table, notepad and pen and walking shoes & hat 

The following Outdoor Handheld and All Terrain types of Garmin GPS’s are most suitable for use with Basecamp and if you own any of these please bring them along: GPSMAP, Montana, inReach, Oregon, eTrek, Dakota, Monterra

After the training we plan to socialize around the braai fires, so bring what you need if you want to join us and don’t forget your refreshments.
