The frustrating "Excuse me, where am I?" or "Can you tell me how do
I get to...?" kind of questions are vanishing from our lives pretty fast.
With the increasing use of GPS navigators, these questions are
becoming forgotten folklore.
More and more people who start using GPS navigators are asking
themselves, 'how did we manage without these things?'. Pretty
much like cell phones and MP3s, these devices are becoming an
integrated part of our lives. We don't even notice them anymore, it
looks as if they've always been there.
The main problem with GPS navigators is not if we need them or how
we are going to pay for them. The main problem is how to choose
the best GPS navigator for our specific needs. With so many options
and such a huge variety of GPS devices, choosing the right GPS can
be a real challenge.
Today GPS navigators are extremely useful devices, as they allow us
to safely reach our destination while taking the shortest and
quickest path from one point to another. These innovative and
smart gadgets enable us to know exactly where we are, whether
we are driving, flying or sailing. It's no longer an exclusive and
secret device for the military forces, it's a necessity for every one of
GPS navigators are mostly used by those who travel by automobile
or by those who love to go out on an outdoor activity such as hiking,
trailing, hunting and fishing. Just imagine yourself out in the
wilderness without a GPS navigator; it's quite a daunting experience
if you get lost. A GPS navigator provides the user the much needed
information on how to navigate to their destination such as their
current location, which street they must take or provides advice on
the current traffic situation of the upcoming street and gives
alternative routes to avoid being caught in a traffic jam. Some of the
GPS navigators have even "text to voice" functionality. This add on
function is so convenient that it eliminates the need for user to look
at the screen of the GPS unit just to know the information the user
needs. All the user must do is activate the function and the GPS
unit will automatically tell the user the information such as "turn left
on the next corner" or "turn right on the next corner".
GPS navigators are using a network of 24 satellites circling around
the earth twice a day at 20,200 km height (12,552 miles). These
satellites transmit signals with information about their exact position
as well as the time based on accurate atomic clocks. At any time
there should be at least 4 satellites over you in the sky. The GPS
receiver takes the time signal from one of them and synchronizes
its clock. Measuring how long the signal reaches the receiver from
the other "visible" satellites enables the receiver to calculate the
location on our three dimensional earth.
The types, forms, shapes and uses of GPS navigators are endless.
Yet the most sharp distinction is between the built-in, dedicated GPS
navigators and the portable navigators. The immobile GPS
navigators are usually adapted to their specific task and to the
vehicle they are attached to. Since they're stabile, their weight is
not an issue, enabling more features and sophistication.
The portable GPS navigators are usually simpler and can be
transferred from a car to a truck or a ship. They can be connected to
portable laptops or PDAs, turning them into effective navigation
systems. Portable GPS navigators are perfect for anyone who hates
reading maps and asking for directions. They're small enough to go
where you go and smart enough to show you the way there. They
have built-in maps of the entire U.S. and Canada and use satellites
to track your position at all times. Just stick one on your windshield,
and it will suggest shortcuts, show what curves lie ahead and, in
some cases, even help you avoid sticky traffic.
Until not long ago, cheaper GPS navigators were hard to use and
required loading maps from a cd inside a computer. Today, even the
most affordable devices are loaded with maps and useful
information. Since traveling in a strange or unknown environment
is always difficult, GPS navigators are becoming a real necessity in
order to find the right way.
Not only they're here to stay, but they'll probably be with us
wherever we go. GPS navigators are essential in the modern world.
The fast development of the transportation industry has a huge
impact on our lives. Today people travel much more and to longer
distances. This growing mobility has to be based on reliable
navigation tools, and GPS navigators are the best solution.
