From the time our rst GPS handhelds supported the Coalition forces in the Gulf War to our current reputation as the rst name in GPS innovation, GARMIN has helped totake GPS to new heights by going beyond the ordinary features and performance found intypical GPS receivers.

What is GPS[B1]?
Global Positioning System. A network of satellites that continuously transmit codedinformation, which makes it possible to precisely identify locations on earth by measuring distance fromthesatellites
 As stated in the definition above, GPS stands for Global Positioning
System, and refersto agroup of U.S. Department of Defense satellites constantly circling the earth. The satellites
transmitvery lowpower radio signals allowing anyone with a GPS receiver to
determine their location on Earth.This remarkable system was not cheap to build, costing the U.S. billions of dollars. OngoingMaintenance,including the launch of replacement satellites,
adds to the cost of the system. Amazingly, GPS actuallyPredates
the introduction of the personal computer. Its designers may not have foreseen aDay when we would be carrying small portable receivers, weighing less than a pound thatwouldNot only tell us where we are in position coordinates (latitude/longitude), but would evendisplay our location on an electronic map along with cities, streets and more.
Who uses GPS
GPS has a variety of applications on land, at sea and in the air.Basically,GPS allows you to record or create locations from places on the earth and help younavigateto and from those spots. GPS can be used everywhere except where it’s impossible toreceivethe signal such as inside buildings; in caves, parking garages, and other subterranean
Locations; and underwater. The most common airborne applications includenavigation byGeneral aviation and commercial aircraft. At sea, GPS is typically used for navigationbyrecreational boaters and fishing enthusiasts.Land-based applications are more diverse. The scientific community usesGPSfor its precision timing capability and a myriad of other applications. Surveyors use GPSfor anincreasing portion of their work.GPS offers an incredible cost savings by drastically reducing setup time at the Survey site.It also provides amazing accuracy. Basic survey units can offer accuracies down to Onemeter If you are involved in an activity or sport where you need to keep track of where you are,find your way to a specified location, or know what direction and how fast you’re going,You can benefit from the Global Positioning System
?GPS is rapidly becoming commonplace in automobiles as well. Some basicsystems Are already in place, providing emergency roadside assistance at the push of abutton(By transmitting your current position to a dispatch center).
