Planning to travel the Anne Beadell Highway. Can someone tell me if a GPS is needed for this route?

Jenlen,

It depends entirely on your level of navigation confidence.

A GPS is a modern way of navigating, but it is almost just as accurate to navigate with a scale ruler, paper map and your odometer (or sextant).

I've looked at that trip, and have done sections of it - I reckon I could do it entirely from memory if someone bet me enough....

So in answer to your question - NO, but ensure that your navigation competance is high if your choose this option.

Cheers
Alan

Just go by your odometer. You won't get lost between Coober Pedy and Laverton. There have been some big exploration tracks go into parts of the GVD over the past 2 years but I doubt that you'd accidentally take one of those.

You don,t really need one to travel the Anne Beadell Hwy, nice straight line but they are more fun to have.



Cheers

Hi,


Very well sign posted, and very easy to see main track from any side tracks. I prefer using one personally, it helps if something happens and you need to find another way out or let someone know your exact position.

Whichever way you decide, go and enjoy, a great track.
