Map Reading

It’s quite funny, as i expect we all know, there just aren’t any mobile or satnav signals in lots of out of the way places and remote spots so the miracle of modern technology can let us down badly.

In theory satnav should work anywhere, except when its bad weather…so if you go exploring away from the park….you may need a good old fashioned map.

For example, you can’t use a mobile phone around the Howden Reservoir, lots of Peak District walks, the coastline, Wales and Scotland…and in lots of places there is only one network provider that you can link to…and if your phone isn’t on the only working network…you just can’t phone or receive.
