Cool, exactly what I was hoping for (enough info to get back alive).

Most target points (VCPs) in the dunes sections will not have "waypoints" or "proximity" alerts as Garmin defines them. Your GPS will not be able to point you to each VCP you're looking for. You WILL have a form of visual indicator on your GPS, however you won't be able to use it until you've already gotten close to the point. This is sort of how it's done in Dakar, with their expensive GPS. I created a new way that allows you to use a much cheaper Garmin, most likely one you already have.
The Garmin force is strong with this one

I think I know how you are doing it but won't divulge your secrets.
