Different Types of GPS Systems

(1/2) > >>

Welcome everyone!!!
You ask yourself ...what different types of GPS systems are available?
Today there is a huge selection of GPS systems catering for the needs of different applications and users.
The basic units are just the plain old receiver with minimal set of features. A basic unit can be bought for around 100 dollars.These simple devices have the basic functionality of reporting the location in terms of latitude and longitude. They may also have a base map (a very high level map that contains major highways and few Points of Interests) of a region. Basic units have limited processor and memory capacity.These units are ideal for a person with low budget whom would like to use GPS for basic navigation, educational activities and fun.

We would like to classify these systems under following main categories:

* Sports / Training Units
* Portable Units
* Car GPS systems
* Double DIN systems
* PDA based Systems
* Laptop based Systems

I am interested about the model name.




Hi, GPS (Global Positioning System) is a navigational system involving satellites and computers that can determine the latitude and longitude of a receiver on Earth by computing the time difference for signals from different satellites to reach the receiver. See Growth of GPS tracking

Hope this will help you too.
