The benefits of GPS use in every day life cannot be over stressed. These are not only limited to the vehicle navigation as is commonly believed but can enrich your lives in a myriad ways. Some of these benefits are:
-- They can help you get the most mileage out of your gas bill, while zeroing in on places of interest. You can also impress your kids by giving them a ready and precise answer the next time they ask- “When will we reach?”
-- They can be of great use if you get a flat tire, and you don’t want to change the tire yourself. You can just press a button and wait for ready roadside assistance. The assistance crew can locate your position accurately and give you the exact time they will take to reach the spot.
-- With GPS help you can track the outlets that your children are using in buying services.
-- GPS can tell you precisely where your senior family members are in case of an emergency. This is because it can locate their position, and tell you where to send an ambulance or first aid.
-- GPS enables emergency personnel to pinpoint your location after an emergency call. They can reach the accident spot faster than if they were following oral directions given by a passer by.
-- GPS can help you save time especially when you are in a rush. It can locate shortcuts and routes that you did not know earlier.
-- GPS can help you locate a good Chinese restaurant near the theatre in which you saw a popular play.
-- It can even keep track of your luggage, laptops, and other important items on a trip.
-- Similarly, if you loose track of your kids in a crowded gathering, you don’t have to worry. GPS can locate them in no time.
-- While taking a group tour you can go your own merry way when you feel like, secure in the knowledge that the group will be easy to locate even in an unfamiliar location.
-- GPS can also act as your travel guide, by storing records of all your favorite haunts. You can also create your own handy travel guide and catalogue.
-- You can use a GPS device to locate pets that are used to wandering off in parks and picnic areas.
These advantages will only get better and better as the technology improves.
