If you read the front pages it will explain the GPS stuff somewhat, I learnt some of it today from another book as well for a better understanding.

Each of the grid squares are broken up, although they are not shown, metres from the left line of grid square and from the top line. (I'm only just starting to learn this stuff myself)  Google lat and long you will find it explained better than I can do.

I have the JT maps as well, they are easy to use and convenient.  The track mapping I have found so far pretty good, generally they exist, but they may not be very good, found one like that a few days ago.  You will probably get lost by taking a wrong turn.

I have the JT maps as well, got them before I found it all online for free, but the are easy to use and convenient, so I don't mind.

Google UTM for the coordinate system used in John Tully maps, each square on the map is 1000metres x 1000metres or 1km x 1km

Use the explanation in the front of his books to explain how to get a starting point for the different map pages.

For example the center of Dunolly would be UTM 54H 743390E 5917210N
