Good up-to-date-book April 6 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book helps the mariner to correctly use his GPS for navigating lakes, rivers, and even coastal waters. The first 4 chapters are designed to teach the reader the basics of GPS operation. The rest of the book goes into more detail for using the GPS for navigation on the water. What I liked about this book is that this can also apply to those who are totally unfamiliar with using a GPS. Therefore this book can be used for the person who uses a handheld GPS for multiple purposes, hiking, hunting, fishing lakes and streams, and even driving in unfamiliar areas.

This second edition of the GPS for Mariners is a great improvement over the first edition. There is more usable material in this book and it is much more readable. Examples are excellent. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about the GPS and how to use it.
