Quick Facts about Global Positioning System   
What are the most important benefits of GPS or Global Positioning System? I know this question may sound a bit too easy to answer but honestly, up until this day, I do not have my own GPS because I feel that I do not really need it. My officemates have been telling me to get one but somehow it doesn’t interest me much, maybe because I do not have that much knowledge about GPS that’s why I’m not too interested. People have been saying I’m too outdated not to have one but before I seriously consider it, I hope you guys could give me some quick facts about GPS.

Basic Facts and Info on GPS
You probably know that GPS is used for determining location and helping you out when it comes to directions. Ever wondered how it works?

GPS works by connecting through satellites around the world. For every GPS device, it is capable of connecting and acquiring information from at least four satellites around the world. Because it connects to the satellites, it is important to have a clear view sky when using GPS devices. Although, various activities also have different specialized GPS devices. There are devices made for hiking, cycling, fishing or other activities.

The GPS devices can show you the latitude and longitude of your location. Aside from this, GPS devices can also show you the direction you are heading to and if you are in your car, it also reflects the speed. GPS device also contains a 12 channel receiver and an antenna that allows them to get a signal from the satellites.
