Our route notes, along with the maps that we provide, should remain your primary means of navigation. As well as directions that guide you from A to B, and information about points of interest along the route, the notes may contain important safety warnings and identify hazards – information that cannot be gleaned by simply following a GPS track. We recommend that you treat the GPS tracks as a secondary means of navigation, whose main purpose is to clear up any ambiguity, for example where there have been changes on the ground.
Therefore, a GPS device is not essential, and there is no need to learn how to use one to enjoy any of our holidays. They do, however, have a number of useful functions which aid navigation and can be used to record information about the route you are following; there are also a large number of apps for smartphones that enable some form of navigation using GPS.
