Renee Elsdon Jacobs of Caltopo.com will be leading a workshop on backcountry navigation using Caltopo.com and the Caltopo beta app. Bring your laptops, cellphones, and/or Garmin gps device to get the hands-on experience you need to not get lost in the woods. We will be reviewing the basic tools and features of Caltopo, route planning, and in-field navigation methods. The DPMR 50k Pub-to-Pub run (happening the following morning) will be a case study. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
When: Friday October 18th from 6-7:30pm
Where: Lift Workspace in Truckee (12242 Business Park Drive, Suite 19 Truckee, CA, 96161).
What: Prior to the event, download the Caltopo beta app in advance at the Google Play store for Android OS, or at https://testflight.apple.com/join/dLwq62XW for Apple iOS. Install the Garmin BaseCamp software on your laptop if you want to experiment with a Garmin watch that has navigation/mapping capabilities.
