I want to recommend a great book about GPS for anyone contemplating =
getting one, or for those who have one but don't really know how to get =
the most out of it.

It's called "GPS Land Navigation" by Michael Ferguson. It's easy to read =

Another handy book for just map and compass work is "Land Navigation =
