SatNav system using Bluetooth GPS receiver

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a constellation of 27 Earth-orbiting satellites (24 in operation and three extras in case one fails). The U.S. military developed and implemented this satellite network as a military navigation system, but soon opened it up for use by everyone else.Как составить семантическое ядро для сайта

Each of these 1500 to 2,000 KG solar-powered satellites, circles the Earth at about 12,000 miles (19,300 KM), making two complete rotations every day. The orbits are arranged so that at any time, anywhere on Earth, there are at least four satellites “visible” in the sky.

You need three things to make a full Sat Nav system with your phone/PDA and a Bluetooth GPS receiver.

1. A compatible Bluetooth phone/PDA e.g. Nokia 6600/6630/6680, Bluetooth enabled iPAQs and other PDAs, Laptops etc. – we do not sell phones or PDAs.

2. Bluetooth GPS receiver – this is what we sell via this website.

3. Sat Nav software compatible with your Phone/PDA. We do not sell this software. Most popular in the UK is Tomtom, but others like Microsoft Auto Route/Pocket Streets, CoPilot, Destinator, viaMichellin, Route66 are good options as well. Check compatibility with your phone/PDA before you buy. Try eBay or Google.

The GPS receiver collects your positioning data via GPS Satellites and transmits via Bluetooth to the phone/PDA. The software on the phone/PDA decrypts this data and then maps it on to the screen, also giving you verbal and visual instructions to your selected destination. You can have Speed Camera database installed to get warnings when you get near one.

Hope this helps give you a basic idea of what a Bluetooth GPS system is made up of.
