The Evolution Of GPS Devices

By Yaha Jones

New Balance GPS Review

People have been trekking and exploring unknown locations from the beginning of civilization.In those days, people would have to rely on natural things such as the sun and stars to pinpoint their location and direction.GPS navigation devices, however, have made life much easier for trekkers and explorers in today’s world.

A person can use a GPS navigation device and satellites in space to not only figure out where he is precisely but also to know how far he is from his intended destination.With humble and simple beginnings, GPS navigation units have evolved a great deal to what they are today.

Garmin is a company that has been on the forefront of GPS navigation systems for a long time now.For example, older navigation devices used a basic number of satellites to triangulate location.

On the other hand, the modern day devices such as the Garmin eTrex 30 Handheld GPS Navigator use the conventional set of satellites and make the process even better with new satellites such as the Russian GLONASS system.It is worth mentioning that the more satellites a navigation device tracks, the more accurate it is.

There is also a great amount of variety when it comes to the GPS navigation devices available in the market today.These can be both highly sophisticated as well as quite simple.The Garmin Edge 200 GPS Bike Computer is an example of the latter.The simplicity of this GPS device allows it to have a great battery life which makes it perfect for bikers on long trails.

However, it is not only Garmin which has been improving the modern day GPS industry.There are other well known names as well such as New Balance.As a matter of fact, if one considers different types of manufacturers, one’s options would increase exponentially.

The New Balance GPS Runner from this company, for example, is worn as a watch.As a result of its design and shape, an individual can wear it on his wrist which means that joggers and runners tend to prefer it over other devices.The hardcore runner will enjoy the features that the GPS Runner offers them.

However, as GPS devices have evolved, they have become more complex and sensitive.This refinement has created new problems as well.Take for example the eTrex 30 which is hampered with an interface that most people describe as cumbersome and tedious.The story is the same with the New Balance device which is openly considered to be extremely difficult to use.

The issues with the Edge 200 are not the same but it certainly has its own issues.Most users state that when it comes to deleting records, the Edge 200 tends to be very stubborn and problematic.

The majority of problems that modern GPS devices suffer from are usually extremely small and insignificant.These flaws further pale in comparison to the wide variety of benefits that such devices provide.

A lot of experts are of the opinion that these devices will become more and more sophisticated as time moves on.These projections are not that surprising when you consider that global positioning technology is not only becoming more advanced but also cheaper.

If you are also looking for navigation units, then you should ensure that you do some research beforehand before picking any one particular device.This would allow you to see the positives and negatives, which would improve the quality of your purchase.
