The Boy Scouts of America are going high tech.
The Irving-based group's new handbook features sections on Internet safety, GPS navigation and an expanded online component. And an iPhone application of the Boy Scout Handbook will be available next month.
The handbook will continue to focus on subjects like camping, woodwork, leadership and citizenship. But the Scouts said in a statement this week that it's adopting "new and modern methods while maintaining the message of preparedness."
The 475-page 12th edition of the manual is available now.
The Boy Scouts serve more than 4.1 million youths between the ages of 7 and 20.
