Intro to Electronic Navigation

with Dave Field


In this 5-week class, you will study the Global Positioning System and learn the ins and outs of satellite-based navigation. You will learn how to enter waypoints, create planned routes and navigate them safely, as well as learn how to navigate using charting software on computers, chart plotters, tablets and even smart phones. You will learn how to plan routes on your home computer before setting foot on your boat.

This course is designed to be taught to beginning boaters with no specific prerequisites. It does not cover traditional paper charting skills.

A $10.00 PLUS Power Squadron fee will be payable to the instructor the first night of class and a $50.00 Student Manual will be made payable to the instructor the first night of class.
