Radio 2011-08-13 GPS Clinic
i think the "how to use your GPS with your computer clinic & BBQ" was a great success!

thanks to all the premium members that came out and hopefully everyone was able to learn a little something new.

the outline/notes/links from the clinic will be posted on the original event thread in the premium section within a couple days.

The topics and material covered were really well thought out and explained in an easy to comprehend manner. I finally learned the 'missing links' I've had to sharing files and using shared files for my unit, I can't wait to practice here at home to solidify what we went over in class.

Thanks Kris for putting it all together and for the awesome presentation. And thanks to both you and Aimee for having us into your home and for the awesome food.

I think that the garmin software will only work with a garmin usb gps. I am free all day tomorrow if you want to test it out with my garmin gps. Just let me know.
