I recently got a Garmin Etrex Venture HC for trail navigation. I've got the software portion and how to upload maps/tracks (with waypoints, track has been shortened to 500 points) to the device portion down, but now how the heck do I use this when i'm out at the trailhead? lol, sorry if this is a dumb question.
Do I just follow the arrow in map view mode of the trail? The compass will only navigate me if I select a waypoint I want to go to correct? I'm thinking of using it this way, although I have not tried it yet; start off at waypoint #1, then select navigate to waypoint #2, then follow the compass until I reach #2, then continue this process?
This is the test trail I'm going to use it on first before I take it out to more difficult trails: http://www.geoladders.com/show_route.php?route=190 .This trail is right by me, so I can't get lost on this one, so it is a great place to gain knowledge on how to use this device properly.
Thanks for the help!
