GPS Presenter Wanted for LOEBMWR Rally

We are looking for someone knowledgeable about GPS that would be willing to make a presentation during the LOEBMWR Bavarian Mountain Weekend motorcycle rally this year, 2015. Our interest is in how to use a GPS device in relation to motorcycle excursions, and, any other usage, from beginner basics to some more advanced tricks. BMW motorcycles use a Garmin manufactured device but a Garmin centric presentation is not necessary. We have projection capability.

Here is information about the rally, Click to read about the Rally and Register for the event. All motorcyclists are welcome.
We offer free registration for a presenter.

If you are interested please email secretary@loebmwr.org

How long of a class?

I work with Tylers Backcountry Awareness doing avalanche education on the snow, been kicking around the idea of putting a "GPS 101" sort of presentation together for the snow shows... basically an hour-long class; here's how the system works, here's some examples of receivers that are out there, basic navigation, mapsets, what is a map datum and why it's important, using GPS with a map/compass, what GPS does and doesn't do, product differences like hard buttons vs. touchscreen, external storage, routing methods (turn-by-turn guidance vs. "orienteering"-mode)...

Maybe some advanced topics like Google Earth integration/PC comm (and the associated interfaces (Serial, USB, bluetooth, wireless), adding in overlays/additional mapsets....

Or maybe touch on or go over some other GPS-related applications - PLB/SPOT, two-way/RINO/ham(APRS)-radio-type features, etc.

I'm an electrical/test engineer in the electronic monitoring business... GPS, cellular, ISM radio is easy stuff for me...

Sounds like just what they're looking for, except you're not allowed to mention the "Snow" word.

It's really the wave of the future. Who wants to carry a paper map that you have to tuck away, then it's a production in unfolding it finding where you are at each and every time you want to use it, fold it back up and put it back into it's space.

http://www.trailtaker.com/trail_map

Then again I am biased and why I partnered with TrailTaker.

Plus it's nice once you learn how to overlay a MVUM onto your Garmin GPS now you can see the Forest Service routes, trails and all that stuff.

Then factor in you can download GPX files for free that are trusted, and even watch videos of THAT trail http://www.trailtaker.com/trails/706

With today's technology no reason to get lost, and no reason to not know what a trail looks like before going.
