The valuation on installing a GPS auto navigation system continues to fall over the last few years. Because of this a great number of are taking advantage of fractional treatments to guide them to wherever it they must travel.

Navigating using a Global positioning system unit has actually been around for many years. Satellite navigation systems were first tested during the late 1960s from the U.S. Navy. Still took a good three decades before the constellation of Global Positioning System satellites were fully available and operational.

The U.S. Military, which is responsible for the Global positioning system unit, began taking full advantage of this technology in the mid 1990s. Soon after GPS technology appeared available to the non military population but as with most things it was prohibitively expensive. At the start it was mainly surveyors, map makers, and pilots who took advantage of the pin-point accuracy that GPS afforded. Unfortunately it may be several years before in car Gps unit systems became reasonable to the general public.

The cost of vehicle tracking devices has continued to fall as the technology has become not only more powerful but also cheaper to create. By combining GPS signals with continuously updated mapping information and powerful software the designers of these GPS receivers are actually able to create systems that let you navigate the roads and highways with ease.

There are two basic forms of in-car GPS systems available on the market today; the portable Global positioning system unit that can be temporarily mounted towards windshield or dashboard then removed and included in a different vehicle. The next option is an in-dash mounted unit that can't be removed. Both systems perform same basic functions therefore it's up to you as to which system is appropriate best for you.

As an example in the event you travel by plane a great deal a portable system might be packed away as part of your baggage and included in your rental car. This takes the guess work out of finding the right path around unfamiliar cities and states.

Most car These tools also come with the ability to download additional maps and data increasing their functionality. Many upper end units also provide the ability to download local traffic information in real-time and assist you around potential traffic jams.
