Ingenuity And Security-Auto GPS

By Gregory Adamonoff

Car companies all over the world have already included portable auto GPS as one of their cars' features aside from speed, security and design. With the unending benefits a GPS can do, it is understandable why anyone would want to have it. GPS is short for global positioning system. The GPS is composed of three segments which are, the space segment, control segment and the user segment. All these are linked to more than 24 satellites orbiting the earth on a daily basis.

When initiated, the satellite sends radio waves to the GPS unit and the satellite calculates how far the vehicle is by calculating how much time it takes for the system to receive the signal from the satellite. This technology can point the exact location of the car. It also guides drivers by informing him of the nearest gasoline station, repair station, hotels or restaurants. It can also point the location of the car if ever it is stolen.

GPS can also track the mileage of the car, speed and distance travelled on a particular trip. It can also keep records of the addresses of the car's destination, names of the streets travelled, and how long the vehicle remained at a certain location. GPS can also benefit the car owner by updating him of basic things like when the battery is low or when the car needs to have an oil change or when it needs refueling.

Best auto GPS nowadays can even alert 911 whenever the airbag is deployed. 911 is then informed by the system of the exact location of the car for them to provide immediate assistance to the injured driver and passengers.

Moreover, this system has provided solutions for lost key problems or frozen keys. The GPS inside the car can communicate with the owner. The driver can phone the GPS and prompt it to start the engine even if he is located at a good distance. These are but a few wonders GPS can do for a car owner. There are still amazing uses which are still being conceived by car companies utilizing the GPS technology. In the next decades, more advanced features will be installed and the possibilities are as limitless as the imagination.
