I have only ever used paper maps and a compass.
My good lady bought me a garmin 64s.
and I bought some maps from mr purple.

I have no idea what the feck I am doing with it.

can anyone guide me through it.

so far I have put the card in the gps and I have maps, but i don't know how to turn on and off the filter things that show doc blocks and deer distributions ets.
I don't even know if the gps is set up properly for NZ maps.

Help ! Embarrassed

ok turn it on...scroll through it till you can find "mark point"
do that then go for a walk-drive bike ride
then bring up "marked point/waypoints..whatever its stored in and wander on homewards
thats what I did and pretty much still do except now I have lots of waypoints marked eg wallows/carparks/huts/known points in blocks I hunt.
best way to learn to drive the puppy is get out and tootoo with it.
OR go to polytech/uni/tramping club and get someone to show you.
