GPS Navigation

Global Positioning Systems have become very popular and useful in the last few years, and they are becoming more common every day.  They have become useful in wilderness navigation, and some more expensive, very accurate units can be used, when “dialed in” properly, to locate buried or hidden equipment caches or exact fishing spots.  The GPS has not replaced the use of a map and compass in navigation, and is not (as yet, at least) even allowed in orienteering competitions.  Yet the GPS does have some additional capabilities to offer when it comes to navigation, and, thus, offers a very useful skill.
