GPS Waypoints for Walking and Hiking in the UK
All the Walks with Downloable GPS Waypoints include GPS Waypoints you can download to your computer and then upload into your GPS Device - whether you use a Garmin, Megallen or a Silva GPS.
If you have ever tried inputting GPS Waypoints by hand you will realise:
- How slow and tedious it is and
- How easy it is to make a mistake.
The GPS Waypoints on go4awalk.com are created by visiting each location and taking on-the-spot readings.
