3) How GPS car tracking devices work
Global Positioning System, or GPS, is a way to accurately determine the location of something on earth, and is considered one of the most important technologies of our time. It uses a combination of satellites and receivers to pinpoint the geolocation of these receivers along longitude and latitude coördinates. Information is supplied by around 30 purpose-built satellites orbiting the earth in fixed orbits. This information can then be interpreted by software the can display the position in a more user-friendly way by using map overlays.
GPS has a myriad applications, including military, civilian transport navigating, personal navigation, map making, climate studies, emergency location, as well as commercial applications such as fleet monitoring and courier tracking.
