The magic of GPS
GPS involves calculating your position by contacting four separate satellites. This allows you to get an accurate picture of exactly where you are down to the meter. Modern GPS units include maps and voice guidance to help your reach your destination quickly and effectively.
Which GPS features are important?
Most GPS systems come with all the features you'd expect. A wide range of voices are available so you can be directed about by a lovely Australian woman or a handsome English gentleman. Most come with bluetooth connectivity and a mounting system. Screen sizes range from 2.5 inches to 4.5 inches. These typical features are not that exciting, but some of the latest developments in GPS technology could change the way that we drive!
Traffic features allow your GPS unit to warn you if there has been an incident on your route, or to reroute your drive to avoid traffic incidents and save time. Modern GPS units can automatically calculate which route would be the fastest given the current traffic conditions and direct you accordingly. New GPS systems also have warnings for red light and speed cameras, allowing you to avoid those costly fines and demerit points. A new feature that has become available since 2008 is lane guidance. Your typical GPS unit will only direct you left or right, but the latest GPS systems will provide you guidance about which lane you should be in. Lane guidance can be provided on most major streets, not just at important intersections.
Older GPS units ran into trouble when they lost signal. Your car would appear to be standing still and you'd miss an essential turn delaying you significantly. This was a common occurrence in areas with poor signal quality such as in the CBD or tunnels where surrounding objects could interfere with your signal. New GPS units feature tracking which can keep you updated even when you lose signal. The Sony Nav-U features a series of sensors that keep you up to date on your position even when it does not have a signal.
GPS is for more than driving!
GPS has a wide range of applications, it is not only useful for helping you drive to a certain destination. Golf GPS units can help you keep tracking of your game, including how far you've hit the ball and give you an overview of the hole before you even taken a shot. A golf GPS can improve your game greatly.
One interesting new phenomenon is geocaching. This involves people hiding objects and then giving someone the GPS co-ordinates and seeing if they can uncover your cache. It is like a modern day treasure hunt using GPS technologies!
Fitness fans can use GPS to help track their progress and exercise. If you are training for a marathon it is important to know how far you've run so that you can build up until that big day. Cycling is another area where riders can benefit greatly from GPS.
