Sometimes you get the impression that all the new cars are coming
equipped with some kind of automotive GPS unit to guide the driver
accurately to the correct destination. Whether it's indeed the case or
not, it makes perfect sense. Unless you're driving the same route
every day and you're not traveling too much, a GPS auto navigation
system is a very good idea. But even if your car is not equipped with
a GPS auto navigation unit, can still be easily fitted with a
supplemented unit, using laptop, handheld unit and a GPS USB.
Anyway, if at this times and at your age you get lost too often while
driving, it’s your own fault! That's because GPS auto navigation - in
one form or the other, is pretty common and affordable now.
Assuming that you have already installed a GPS auto navigation
system in your car, then you should follow a few simple safety rules
when driving in order to maximize your personal safety on the road.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a long distance driver using the
GPS auto navigation system for a vacation, or just using your satellite
navigation system to find the best route around traffic problems, the
rules for using GPS systems safely are the same.
Before starting your car, make sure that the GPS receiver is firmly
mounted. If you have a windshield mounted receiver that uses a
suction cup to hold it in place, make sure that it is firmly attached. If
your GPS receiver is mounted on the dash, check it to ensure that it
is not going to fall off while you're driving. The surprise of a falling
GPS may be very dangerous while driving.
There is nothing worse than the a GPS unit falling off its mounting
while you are driving in a non-familiar area. And even worse if you'll
start reaching around to try and locate the missing GPS and place it
back while you are driving. If your system is removable, you should
take it out of the car whenever you leave it parked in order to
remove any temptation for thieves who might otherwise try and
steal it off you.
Once you hit the way, there is no need to do anything. If you have
planned the GPS to show you the way, you should not touch it again.
The GPS auto navigation unit should be there to assist you, not to
distract your attention. Ideally, it will give you information about
directions through the car’s audio system, so that you don't have to
look at the screen too often when you are driving. Otherwise your
attention will be diverted away from where it should be – the road.
It is important to remember that the advice given by a GPS auto
navigation system is not infallible, and it is not a substitute for
common sense. If you feel that you are being misdirected, and the
route that you are following is wrong, do not be afraid of ignoring
the advice and following an alternative route.
When used properly, and safely, an GPS auto navigation system can
provide you with all the information that you need in order to get to
your destinations quickly and easily, with a minimum of fuss, and
managing to avoid any traffic problems. By behaving sensibly with
your GPS auto navigation system – making sure it is well fitted,
leaving it alone when you are driving, and paying attention when
you need to – you will have a safer, quicker and more enjoyable
journey than ever before, and never need get lost again.
