About Car GPS vs Bluetooth GPS Receiver
Post by: admin

GPS abbreviation from Global Positioning System, is tools for help the navigation and knowing the position with satellite coordinate. GPS start introduce in year 1973, the US Department of Defense utilize as many as 24 satellites around the world. Now, the function of GPS is open free for everyone, so we can use the GPS to help us all the time, all day 24 hours without paying anything.

What we need to have for utilize the satellite is having GPS tools. There are many kind of GPS that exist in the market. Now, we are talking about GPS which is use for help us find the location base by address or type location. This GPS is usually use for car driver / motorcycle.

GPS work by receiving satellite transmission to know what is the coordinate at this location, after that GPS will translate the location into map which already loaded inside the GPS tools. So all GPS should have the map first before it could help us to find the location. There are many map provider, usually they also produce the GPS tools. But most of the map only available for big or famous city. Some community also provide map which supported by community members, benefit for community members are, they can get or download that map for free.

From what I've already found, at least 2 kind of GPS that plenty use by driver. First general GPS which is already have altogether at one tools. The satellite receiver inside and also have their own LCD display for showing the map, price start from >$200. The difference for more expensive one is the supported features such as bluetooth, and working together with our car audio system. If you are doesn't matter with the support function, the cheap GPS (around $200-$250) is enough for navigate your way. Nothing different, because the main features of GPS are same.

Other kind of GPS is GPS Receiver Only, this is only a small satellite receiver which have a bluetooth connection. The price start from >$30. We can not directly navigated with this GPS, we need other tools to install map file and display the LCD. This product can be pair with PDA or Cellular Phone, of course we have to install the GPS software first and than we have to install map files at the PDA or Cellular Phone before use it. After everything installed and the PDA can communicate with GPS Receiver, we will have the same feeling as using pure GPS.

The only different between that both kind GPS is we have to supply 2 power for GPS Receiver Only and the PDA, especially if we will use it for long trip. I would prefer using pure car GPS for long trip. But if you infrequent using GPS, I suggest to use GPS Receiver Only with PDA or Cellular Phone. Don't forget to bring your GPS Receiver and PDA charger together.
