Maybe this is the wrong forum but hear goes. I would like to learn how to use GPS coordinates in coordination with a map in order to navigate long distances accuratly. For instance my small GPS Etrex I have on my boat doesnt have a good memory for long trips, such as a long run up the yukon. What kind of map can I get that will allow me to utilize a grid type system transfering long/lat numbers from my gps to the map. That way if I want to find, say a feeder creek to a lake with no known exact GPS coordinate, I just transfer my coordinates from my GPS to my map and zero in on it. I know itll take a recent and detailed map. I just dont know where to get one or what kind to even ask for. Ive never really been taught land nav.
Cub, Im trying to get to that lake upstream from where we camped a couple of years ago to put in a bait this spring. Not where we fished last year, the other one. ( double secret OG code )
