Finding Places Using GPS Cell Phones
Gone are those days when we used to carry the world map book or check out globe to locate a place. With the advancement in technology it has been
made possible to view any place on earth at merely a hand long device. These are called the GPS devices. As the technology improved the service of

enabled cell phone. GPS cell phone guides you to the way for any destination to want to reach, provided there appropriate software is installed in it.
What is GPS? It is the Global Positioning System which was developed by Department of Defense, US. They developed this service in order provide
correct directions to the US military in time. Later on, it became public and now it is within the reach of an average citizen.
The working of GPS largely depends on three things: satellites; receivers; Earth monitoring stations. The signals from satellites are processed in the
receivers, that is, cell phone, or any other device). This processing is done in order to make the user understand the location in best possible way as a
user can not directly receive a signal anyway.
G.P.S. Cell phones in future are expected to have the feature of tracking any cell phone user. This service will be beneficial in case of emergency to
track the number of the user who is in trouble like in case of an accident or any other emergency. The G.P.S. cell phones do not have the same quality
as that of the GPS devices used by drivers, mariners and hikers. The devices go in detail of the location whereas the cell phones enabled don`t
provide the locations with every corner explained. G.P.S. cell phone has the facility of Global Positioning System while it serves as a normal phone
used for calling or sending text.
Locating people using G.P.S. cell phones is a great advantage of the GPS service. You don`t have to fear about your kids and family by keeping a
track of their location
