Designed for both land and water use, this comprehensive guide helps unlock the complexity of map and chart reading as it relates to navigation. Beginning with detailed technical descriptions of the tools of navigation-a compass, an altimeter, a GPS system, and a sextant-this handbook shows how to use these tools either individually or in combination with each other to navigate any area. Factors that cause tools and techniques to fail are discussed, such as why an altimeter often shows the wrong elevation, a GPS position is sometimes off track, and the sun often points in an unexpected direction. Twenty-one real-life scenarios provide practical wisdom for even the most intrepid navigator. Specific information on using the moon for directions and the stars for position, measuring boiling water temperature for elevation, map projections, map datums, great circle routes, and the UTM/UPS grid system is included.

Very Detailed Navigation Guide

If you only buy one navigation book then this one should be it. There is a huge amount of detail, perhaps too much for a complete beginner, plus many illustrations and diagrams. I found the chapter on celestial navigation to be most enlightening, as if you really were stuck in the wild that is the kind of thing you would need to rely on. There are complicated maths in this book that had me stumped so perhaps it is better for a more experienced navigator.
