GPS Made Easy is the premier book in North America for users of handheld and in-car GPS receivers, having sold more than 150,000 copies. It explains how GPS works, describes features common to all receivers, and gives practical examples of using GPS in the outdoors. Clear language and illustrations demystify GPS navigation for every user.

The fourth edition of GPS Made Easy has been revised to reflect the increased accuracy provided by the WAAS and EGNOS satellites, the availability of downloadable maps and the use of computers, PDAs and Pocket PCs with GPS receivers.

  • owns a GPS receiver
  • is considering buying a GPS receiver
  • works in remote, featureless areas
  • sea kayaks or canoes wilderness rivers
  • hunts, fishes or drives in the backcountry
  • skis, climbs or hikes above tree line
