Cool Things About GPS!

by Alexandra Coldstone

Intro

        I love reading, but my stupid brother is always getting in the way. When I am will be driving, there are things that, like my stupid brother, get in the way.  GPS can solve this problem for me.  If you want to find out how, you’ll just have to read the rest of my report.  Now, if only GPS could solve my brother problem.  First, you will learn about how it works. GPS can affects us. Second, you will learn about a really cool rearview mirror. Finally, you will learn about super cool facts. If you are a mom or dad you can get a tracker to know where your kid is at all times.

        

This report is about Your Topic. First, you will learn about its history.  Secondly, you will read about what it is.  Then, I will teach you about how it works.  Finally, I will blow your mind with some super cool facts.  That is what my report will be.

What IT is

        Most GPS’s have options like Avoid Tolls”, “Avoid Highways”, and “Avoid Dirt Roads”. According to Whitson Gordon if you have these on it, it  will not get you to your destination in a decent amount of time. If you want to get to your destination as quick as you can you would want to have “Minimize Turns” on. If you try to turn it off, the next time you open that app it will just turn itself back on again. I think this is cool because then you do not have to deal with all of the traffic.

        We are all influenced by GPS. According to Jackie Allen, your new cell phones and other things are perfect examples. In our car when we are driving if we need to get somewhere and do not know the way we utilize the satellites because we refer to them over head. We are all connected to GPS, because it is world wide. (GPS is Global Positioning System.)

How IT W

        If you want to put a GPS in your rearview mirror. Christen Costa said, the installation is easy. It will also direct you turn by turn. When you are driving you can surf the net. It has a DVR camera that can rotate 360 degrees so you can record in any direction that you want. You can grab the android rear view mirror for only $230. I think this is cool because I can search something up if I am in the car with my mom.

        You can look into the sky and find satellites. Physics.org said, you can see at least four GPS satellites at all times wherever you are on the planet. Each one of the satellites transmits information about its position and its current time. These signals travel at the speed of light. These are intercepted by your GPS receiver. It calculates how far away each satellite is based on how long it took for the messages to arrive. I think this is cool because then you can see satellites that are in space.

 

        Today we will learn about SPS. According to Peter H. Dana, SPS is another form of locating things.  It is free, but not as accurate as GPS.  The accuracy of SPS (and GPS) depend on horizontal factors, time factors, and vertical factors.  Even the elevation of the satellite makes a difference. So, a lot can go wrong.  I think this is crazy, because I like math, and there is a lot of math involved in GPS.

Super Cool Facts That Will Blow Your Mind

        It can be really heart stopping to not know where your child is. According to Erik Malinowski there is a tracker that can let you know where your child is. If you know where your child is it will not need to be as heart stopping. It can last a day or two on charge. It can give you updates on where your child is. It can also detect any possible danger. I think this is cool because then you can know where your child is so you do not have to worry.

        This paragraph is about how much they cost.

        You sometimes have trouble figuring out what kind of GPS.
