GPS or Global Positioning System in simple terms is one system that will help us to know the position we are today. GPS works by transmitting signals from the satellite (NAVSTAR, GLONASS, BEIDOU, etc) to the GPS device (mobile, Android, IOS or Blackberry are equipped GPS for example). To obtain a detailed position as accurately as possible, the GPS should be used in open space. If we use GPS in indoors room, or in a place that many high buildings, maybe it will make GPS less accurate work.

GPS information is transmitted by several satellites (three satellites for example) so that the GPS receiver can calculate and display as accurately as possible the position, velocity and time information to GPS users.

GPS technology was first used by the United States Department of Defense (DOD) for military needs. The GPS system use since 1980, but in general usage by public approximately at the 1990's.

GPS is being able to work in various weather conditions, day or night. The accuracy of a GPS device can reach 15 meters, the latest models accuracy to can reach 3 meters.
