Re: Mystery GPS Marks

Thanks Packo, After reading through your extensive research I've made your suggested changes, plus added in the details of the other marks for The Pinnacles and Gambier. The problem of lots of GPS marks and not knowing which ones are correct is insidious. I found a research paper by someone at Herit...

Re: Finding the...

G'day,

I've now started to enhanced these "Finding the" information blocks to include the distance and bearing the extra GPS marks are from the GPS marks we're using for the dive site. It really helps to better understand the relationship between the marks.

Best regards, Lloyd Borrett.
