Positioned for success? Test your skills with a GPS device

THERE’S MORE TO using a GPS device than setting waypoints and following routes on an electronic map. There are settings to adjust, coordinate systems to learn and procedures to prevent errors. You must be on target 100 percent of the time when navigating. One error is enough to get you lost! 

Take this quiz and see how much you know about GPS navigation. Some questions might appear to have more than one right answer. Choose the best answer.
