Use of a Global Positioning System in Northern Sweden

You get a handbook with every GPS, and there are many technical pages available in the Internet, so it is not necessary to say very much concerning the technical function of a GPS.

Instead, I would like to give some hints that might make it easier for a beginner to use the GPS in Sweden. Starting with the GPS, I had to think a lot about these things, until I understood how I had to use the map. So maybe that someone, who reads my pages first, might have it easier. I refer to the Garmin GPS 12, since it is the only one that I know.
