Navigate with NatGeo @ REI

Outdoor enthusiasts in northern California can learn how to use GPS with map software to plan hikes and other activities in a series of free evening clinics at REI.

Our Jeff Caulfield will take you through a simple trip planning exercise, discuss "on the trail" applications of GPS and give you tips on how to use GPS in the navigation process.

Everyone who attends will receive a free CD with Basic Map and GPS Skills, other helpful info, and trail overlays to use with TOPO! digital maps.

Clinics begin at 7 p.m. Click on links for maps and directions to each store:

The feature sets are very close on both PC and Mac platforms, and the primary difference between our software products is what maps they offer. The feature sets among all are about to get closer and we will be transitioning to a single installer for all map sets in the coming months. Sign up at www.topo.com to get info when we're ready.
