Also featured are tips about additional GPS functions and displays.
The “Electronic Navigation with GPS” video is also being distributed by America’s Boating Channel through popular social media including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
America’s Boating Channel is now releasing a new safe-boating video every Friday as most Americans prepare for the recreational boating season.
Topics covered in the new series include cold water survival, life jacket wear, human-propelled sports, electronic navigation, situational awareness, and boating under the influence (BUI).
All video programming on the channel is offered at no charge.
America’s Boating Channel is produced by United States Power Squadrons under a grant from the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund administered by the U.S. Coast Guard.
