Where am I
GPS helps you determine exactly where you are, but sometimes important
to know how to get somewhere else. GPS was originally designed to provide navigation
information for ships and planes. So it's no surprise that while this technology is
appropriate for navigating on water, it's also very useful in the air and on the land.
On the Water
It's interesting that the sea, one of our oldest channels of transportation, has
been revolutionized by GPS, the newest navigation technology. Nova Stars introduced the
world's first GPS receiver for marine navigation in 1985. And as you would expect,
navigating the world's oceans and waterways is more precise than ever.
Today you will find Nova Stars receivers on vessels the world over, from hardworking
fishing boats and long-haul container ships, to elegant luxury cruise ships and
recreational boaters. A commercial fishing company
uses GPS so they can return to their best fishing holes without wandering into the wrong
waters in the process.
But GPS navigation doesn't end at the shore.
