Help with route plotting and GPS

At the ride leader workshop in August we talked about running a further workshop to help ride leaders and members build confidence and independence in using GPS for planning routes and riding.

I believe that we have a lot of expertise within the Club that we could share but the workshop model may not be appropriate as there are many different systems and everyone will be at a different starting level. In order to take this forward could you e-mail me and tell me if you are interested, and what you would like help with. For example:

  • how to plot a route
  • finding and downloading routes – general
  • as ride leader, adding GPS to website
  • as ride leader, editing your ride on the website
  • advice on choosing a GPS
  • practical issues with using GPS
  • common GPS problems
  • other

We will need to know what system you are using. For example: Garmin or Phone.

For those who are already fluent with one or more systems, are you able/willing to help others and, again, on which devices, phones etc?

Once we know what help people want we can work out the best way to take this forward.

Thank you.
