IT-706 GPS Trainer

Navigation played a very important role in our lives since we started travelling. Global Positioning System (GPS), now a days it is becoming very important part of our life as the technology has made it available to every person. This technology is enabling ordinary people, with no knowledge of navigation, to find their way around the Earth. This technology is used for many purposes, like for fun, for saving lives, to find a way around lost path etc. This Trainer explores the theory and practical related to GPS technology.
