Introduction to Mobile Device Navigation Training @ Tierpoort Adventure Farm (Gauteng)

R 750.00R 1,750.00


In the training we will answer all question and show by practical demonstration what your options are for devices and apps as well as discuss all the myths about using a mobile device. If you heard stories about screens, cracks, cameras, battery, sun damage, vibration, need to be online etc, it's all nonsense. We will show you how mobile devices, chosen and used correctly, far outweigh the use of any traditional GPS device such as Garmin. With the current tools and user-friendliness at your disposal online and on mobile devices, this will be one of your best investment as an adventure motobiker.

If you don't have a mobile navigation setup yet, don't miss this training.
