What is GPS?
"GPS is the world’s first satellite navigation system. It was developed and maintained by the U.S. Government’s Department of Defense. GPS consists of 3 key elements: satellites in space, monitoring stations on Earth and your GPS receiver. GPS has 24 satellites that circle Earth in orbital paths, sending out radio signals from their position in high orbit. Each satellite’s signal covers a large area of the earth’s surface and they are orbiting so that your GPS receiver back on Earth is always getting signals from at least 4 satellites (the number you need to pinpoint your location). There are 5 monitoring stations: the master station in USA and four unmanned stations around the globe. Your GPS receiver picks up signals from GPS satellites to work out your location. Each satellite transmits low power radio signals. The signals travel by so-called ‘line of sight’. This means they pass through clouds, glass and plastic, but not usually through solid objects, such as buildings."
Do I need to be outside to use GPS?
Yes, GPS is operating based on weak signals transmitted from satellites. These signals do not penetrate solid objects and thus clear visibility to the sky is needed. It is however possible to get a position if room has e.g. large windows or a non-metal roof.
Does the GPS work inside my Car?
Yes, but some cars have a thin metal layer in windows which can block GPS signals. In these cases please use a Car Kit with external GPS antenna.
What can I do with the Personal Navigation feature?
You can calculate the shortest or fastest route between two points.
What kind of maps I can use?
EX4U is providing a set of maps with each Twig Discovery. We offer additional maps of other countries.
