Law enforcement has been using the Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking system for some time now as an investigative tool when monitoring suspects and such. Even those of us who don’t know much about the GPS tracking system know enough to know that if you put one of those tiny little boxes in or on someone’s car, you can track wherever the car goes which is a real big plus if your car is stolen.
However, as technology continues to bring us newer and better innovations, GPS, like any other kind of technology has expanded beyond law enforcement use and has become an everyday tool for some. For example, golfers are having a blast with the GPS tracking system. Some golf courses, especially those at nice resorts have an in-dash GPS tracking system on the golf carts! It isn’t to keep an eye on the golfers or to keep the golfers from getting lost, but rather it is an aid to the golfer’s game.
With this GPS tracking system, the golfers are able to look at 3-D shots of each hole, any rough terrain or danger spots ahead and because it is a GPS tracking system, they’ll be able to get immediate help if there is an emergency. More than anything, though serious golfers and casual ones alike are infatuated with the newest “toy.” Who can blame them? They’re getting important information that just may make the difference in their game!
Golfers also get measured distances and scoreboard views and golf tips from this GPS tracking system. Some golfers have personal hand-held ones that do some of those same things but there’s nothing like looking at the next hole before you even get there!
