The SatNav Users Guide to Navigation and Mapping Using GPS Review
When it comes to SatNav systems I can honestly say that I have not had a great deal of luck with them. Admittedly, they are a better option than my map reading skills which I had to rely on before having a SatNav installed in your car became all the rage, but I have honestly lost count of the amount of times that I have been in a car that has ended up in the complete wrong destination.
I have a friend who lives in the UK who has some funny stories of his SatNav exploits. He travels around the country to watch his football team and he often ends up miles away from his original destination simply because he has followed the directions that his trusty SatNav has given him. One of his most recent exploits was when he when he travelled to see his team play Crystal Palace and he ended up at the Athletics stadium instead of the football ground, and he swears blind that he put the correct details into his SatNav!
Anyway, bearing all of this in mind I was interested when a family member was raving about a book that he had read on this very subject. It explained exactly how a SatNav system works and how to ensure that you get the very best out of it so that the chances of getting lost in the future will be kept down to an absolute minimum.
I decided to investigate myself but to be honest I wasn’t all that hopeful as I was sure that anything involved in this subject would be jam packed full of confusing explanations and diagrams that I would not be able to make head nor tail of. How wrong could I have been because The SatNav Users Guide to Navigation and Mapping Using GPS very easy to read and I already have a much better understanding of the subject.
I just know that this will make any driving experience that I have far easier and far more enjoyable and this is a good job because after I had carried out some research it soon became apparent that it is not only funny incidents that can be attributed to a faulty SatNav, there have also been a large number of tragedies and this certainly makes you sit up and think about it all.
The SatNav Users Guide to Navigation and Mapping Using GPS is priced at only $24.75 and I would have to say that this represents really good value for money. You wouldn’t think that 100 pages would be needed to tell the reader everything that they need to know but each page is full of interesting information and if someone who usually has no interest whatsoever in this kind of thing can’t stop reading, ie me, then it would be safe to say that this book is going to be extremely popular indeed.
The author, John Maris, is so sure that anyone who makes the purchase will be pleased with the information that he is sharing, he is offering a full 60 day money back guarantee so anyone who is interested in learning more will have absolutely nothing to lose. If you aren’t 100% satisfied there is no jumping through hoops in order to get your money back, just ask and it will be given.
In my opinion, The SatNav Users Guide to Navigation and Mapping Using GPS is worth it’s weight in gold and well as being really interesting it could also turn out to make a massive difference to the SatNav experience of anyone who puts the information to good use.
