GPS (global positioning system) receivers are quickly making atlas maps obsolete. No matter where you are located or how lost you are, a GPS receiver will not only pinpoint your location but also tell you exactly where to go. When you make wrong turns, a GPS receiver will recalculate the route for you. Need a gas station? The more advanced receivers can lead you to the nearest one.

How to Choose a GPS Receiver
Almost all receivers are accurate within 15 meters, but some are even more exact. Another factor to consider is whether you need voice directions. If you frequently drive alone to new places, voice directions are desirable. While many GPS receivers have well-lit LCD displays, it can still be difficult to read while driving. You can always turn the voice off when you do not need it.
If you like to measure distances or track your average speed, many GPS receivers can do this for you. And if you take long road trips that include several destinations, you may want a receiver that can store up to 50 locations. As you can see, there are many things you can do with a global positioning system.
