In this section we will look at navigation and signalling. This will include both the use of GPS as well as map and compass. We will also discuss apps for phones, especially ones that can be used ‘off line’ or when out of the range of cell phones towers.
On the signalling side we will discuss some of the stand alone tools, such as signal mirrors, strobes, etc. but also some devices that double both as navigation and signalling, such as satellite GPS units like the Garmin InReach.
Below is a video I shot with Survival Dispatch in June 2019 where Jon and I discuss some of the navigation and signalling devices. Additional articles will be added as this section is expanded.
