    Episode 33: Garmin Q&A

    Episode 33: Garmin Q&A

    In this episode I’ll answer some Q&A’s left on the hundred of Garmin GPS tutorials I’ve posted on YouTube over the past month. The list of Garmin products mentioned are: Garmin instinct, gpsmap 66st, montana 680t, Vivoactive 3 and a few others. I also explain how to collect GPS field data with a wearable and why I will never use a smartphone as my primary GPS device while on the trail.

    Episode 30 - Summer is almost over

    Episode 30 - Summer is almost over

    In this episode there is a lot of Garmin news to talk about including their ransom ware attack and new products I’ll probably buy for the fall tutorial content. I spend a little time talking about why a ZOLEO is a better option than a Garmin inReach mini. Finally, I lament about the last few weeks of summer and travelling across the Atlantic bubble.
