A GPS tracker system has the ability to pin point an individual’s location to within a few feet, which means that you are instantly able to find yourself on a map. Satellite navigation systems were one of the first features to make use of the widely available technology and in doing so have forever altered map reading.

Map overlays and real time GPS tracking allow you to follow your progress accurately and precisely and with your destination’s location co-ordinates entered into the system you are not likely to be lost for long.

They are able to indicate motorway exits, service stations and alert you if you are speeding, thereby taking a lot of the stress out of travelling. The relayed 3D images also make it easier for you to fully understand your location and make accurate decisions regarding directions.
