Will These Maps Make Me an Ace Navigator?

No. You should not rely on your GPS as the sole or primary means of navigation. Batteries go flat, GPS cases leak and your GPS can get lost or dropped. We strongly recommend that you also carry a paper map and compass and have the skills to use them. The GPS makes finding your way a lot easier, but you need to be able to find your way home without it.
