Normally, GPS can be used for locating a particular position, navigating from one location to another, tracking the movement of people or objects or mobile things, mapping the world, or even creating perfect or near-perfect timing for some operations.

Re: GPS Practical Applications
Obviously the most popular function for GPS is determining a person or object’s position. This can be easily demonstrated in terms of determining the exact position of a town or city in the world using GPS.

Re: GPS Practical Applications
Tracking or navigating from one location to another is also high up in the list of uses for GPS. For instance, newer models of Mercedes Benz cars have a GPS positioning device onboard wherein the car can be tracked by satellite anywhere in the world. This is specially created for Mercedes Benz cars to discourage car thefts.

Likewise, courier and other package delivery companies, such as UPS or even DHL, use GPS systems to track the route of a package that a client has sent from the point of origin to the point of delivery. And this can even be ascertained in real time and online!
