It consists of three parts: satellites that orbit the Earth, Monitoring stations, and the actual GPS unit.
GPS is not limited to means of travel but also quite prevalent throughout our society. GPS systems help the individual locate points of interest. For instance, one can seek for desired places to stop in the cities in which you visit. If you need medical care, you can find a hospital through GPS. Searching for points of interest on a GPS is quite a benefit of its own. As long as GPS are not treated as devices without error, this technology makes life easier and a little less stressful when trying to get from point A to point B.
