About the program

This program is specifically designed for those who want to learn or perfect digital navigation and the use of GPS technology.

The program consists of two two-day trainings: basic GPS training and advanced GPS training.

You will learn

  • Basics of GPS technology and navigation
  • to install and edit GPS maps and tracks
  • to plan a tour and draw your own track
  • to navigate using a GPS device or GPS smartphone app

Basic GPS training

You have no experience riding a GPS track and you don’t know how to work with digital maps, tracks and the like?
You want to navigate on your own or take your friends on tours?

In the pleasant atmosphere of our lecture halls and in the good company when riding, at the basic GPS training you will learn everything you need to know about digital navigation and GPS.

After this training, you will be able to independently prepare maps and tracks for a long offroad trip on a motorcycle and navigate the planned route using digital cartography based on GPS technology.

The training teaches both: how to work with GPS devices and smartphone applications.
