Global Positioning System (GPS) is becoming popular nowadays. It is a satellite-based navigation system maintained by the US government. I have learned that it is very useful for car navigation because you may use it as a guide when driving to unfamiliar location. Some vehicles have the GPS integrated in their car system when they bought it but some are optional.
Aside from the GPS for car navigation, you can add GPS to an iPad, iPod touch, Android tablet or laptop with new uses. Topographic maps for hiking and speedometer apps for cycling are some cool apps that you can use when adding GPS to the said devices. It will be a lot more easier to use handheld GPS systems wherein you can choose a reliable portable GPS and a choice of apps depending on your needs.
My husband and I loves to travel on certain unfamiliar places. Although our vehicle doesn’t have GPS integrated, it will be easier to add GPS to our laptop or mobile that we could use for car navigation.
