Learn More About GPS For Free

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- If you're one of the many people who got a GPS device for
Christmas or want to learn more about these Global Positioning Devices you can now do it for free.

REI in Kennewick is offering classes for you to learn about the basic functions and navigation techniques of your GAS. The first class Wednesday night was packed. Experts explain why these free classes come in handy.

"GPS is by far one of the top gifts that are given out across the nation at REI, so we decided people are getting new stuff and they're going to need to know how to use it," said Becky Driscoll, Outreach Specialist for REI.

If you couldn't make it to the first meeting there will be another class on Wednesday January 23rd. at 6:30p.m. at the REI store in Kennewick, off Highway 395.

There will also be an outdoor exercise on January 30th at 6:00p.m. at Badger Mountain, where you can learn more about Geocaching, a nationwide recreational sport using a GPS.
