How does GPS work?
In Latin, ‘navi-gare’ means to sail or to steer a ship (from ‘navis’ meaning ‘ship’ and ‘agere’ meaning ‘to drive’). We know that around 3500 BC boats began carrying goods for trade, which meant the birth of navigation.
The early days of navigation
Before the days of GPS receivers that fit in your pocket, finding your way about wasn’t quite so convenient
Longitude + Latitude = Smart navigation
As with most things in life, economics has been the mother of invention when it comes to most advances in navigation.
Navigation – The Modern Era
The introduction of navigation systems that used radio signals meant a massive breakthrough and paved the way for today’s GPS technology.
