Stephen Hinch has taught courses in GPS navigation to police and fire personnel, park rangers, search-and-rescue staff, and recreational outdoor enthusiasts since 1998. When he was young, his avid rockhound parents would pack up the family and head out to remote desert locations in search of semi-precious stones nearly every weekend. These desert explorations honed his navigational skills and taught him the importance of not getting lost.
Trained as an electrical engineer, Hinch has more than 30 years of experience in upper-level mangement in the high-tech industry, with three patents to his name. He maintains an active author blog about GPS technology on Amazon.com.
