The purpose of this challenge is to make your way though a set course, making your way from one GPS coordinate to another. At each GPS coordinate location, you will receive the next coordinate.
 
What your GPS and you needs to be able to do:
Enter waypoint coordinates and make your way to them. If you are new to this type of challenge, please practice entering coordinates such as N49 05.092 W122 00.641 into your GPS and using the seek function to make your way to them. http://www.geocaching.com is an excellent site for doing a similar sort of challenge.
