Ha, good luck with your map and compass in the featureless desert. Can't terrain associate and you're bound to lose your bearing sooner or later. GPS is pretty much the only way to get around there. That or ask the Bedouin, but they aren't always available or friendly.Another reason to use a map and compass. A man who has to use a GPS to get around isn't really a man, he's an idiot!
Well I'm also a pilot and I use a GPS to get around. Actually I have THREE GPS in the plane. I don't ~have~ to use it but it makes navigation a lot easier and safer. It also keeps me out of those pesky TFR (Temporary Flight Restricted) areas that pop up as George W. makes his rounds. I guess that makes me an idiot times 3? Let's not be Luddites.Topper said:Another reason to use a map and compass. A man who has to use a GPS to get around isn't really a man, he's an idiot!
