Gatton — Adventure Ride & Enduro ride with a GPS navigation course 27th-28 Th August 22
Start Saturday 11 am- 1 pm GPS Navigation for motorbikes 2 hour Course
Location ; Gatton Shire Hall : 52 North street, Gatton ( Bring GPS & Phone )
All rides after the GPS course are free and open to all riders but they will need to navigate themselves.
This course will be a great opportunity to learn stuff in a classroom then get on the bike and use what you have just learned and then have people around to help you.
Suitable for Enduro and Adventure riders ( all bikes must be registered to ride the tracks provided)
Riders need to sort out a bar mount for their phone before attending the weekend. (Enduro and ADV ) ( impossible to navigate without this )
Gaiai GPS on smart phones ( set up, Loading tracks, downloading maps for offline use, finding tracks and building tracks ) GAIA allows you to see all the existing tracks in an area this is why we like it.
Garmin GPS units loading GPX files and settings required to navigate an offroad track as well as auto navigation when no track file is available.
Notes: Gaia GPS phone app is the future, those with Garmins should go to the trouble of buying a quad lock phone mount and sort out power to the phone when its on the bike. $59 for the Gai app subscription is all you pay. When buying a Quadlock get the phone case and “ not the stick on” for your phone. Gaiai can be your back up system however it is the easiest way to create tracks and load them.
Free rides all are welcome ( Saturday loop you may consider inviting a friend to do the Nav course and then ride a loop on your bike)
