Upgrade Your GPS Today

Hamilton Masonic District C has been hard at work compiling a list of lodge building details throughout the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario.

By following the instructions below you can upgrade your current GPS device free of charge in order for it to direct you to any lodge in Ontario with features such as search, and proximity calculations whereever you are in the province.
Please Note: Unfortunately we do not have the manpower to support and technical support questions surrounding this project. The installation of the file is very quick and painless however with the instructions below.
