One of the most important yet underrated technologies we have today is the GPS of Global Positioning System. GPS has revolutionized the way we live, work, and do business. What this technology does is provide the user with information regarding the real-time location of another device or user. Over the course of time, this utility has evolved from a high-level tool to a commoditized item that is present in many vehicles and even smartphones these days.
While GPS takes in many forms, many people are often only familiar with two types: the standalone, and as stated earlier – the smartphone-based ones. For many years, standalone GPS units have become the main tool for many drivers that travel on foreign roads often. However, with the advancement of both GPS and mobile technology, more people see smartphone-based GPS apps as a more viable and effective solution in their day-to-day activities.
