Hut info as TomTom and GPS files

Posted by Alex Messenger on 13/04/2010
Don't get lost on the way to your hut

Now you can add BMC and MCofS huts to your GPS or TomTom.

Andy Syme, webmaster for the Yorkshire Ramblers' Club, has been geeking away on our behalf. Using the BMC and MCofS hut lists, he's created files to allow you to easily locate the club huts.

Links to the different types of file can be found on the Yorkshire Ramblers' Club website.

He's only included information that was previously available on the web. Contact him via webmaster@yrc.org.uk with any comments
