Top 5 reasons to own a Global Positioning System (GPS)

22Many people nowadays own a Global Positioning System a.k.a “GPS”, but a lot of people don’t actually own a GPS, they use their phone’s built in GPS to navigate. Why would you ever use a gps computer device over your phone’s very own built in gps? Well let’s find out.

1. Battery) the one reason which I believe to be the strongest reason, is battery life. Now most of you are quite familiar with phones and their battery life, many of which have horrible battery life that runs out quickly. The benefit of electronic devices that don’t have rechargeable batteries is obviously, you can just plug them in, or use a long lasting battery and they work for as long as you want… A computer, television, gps, toaster, etc. will have nearly unlimited battery life. Now a phone has a rechargeable battery, and for many phones it has a small charge. Some can do very well, some examples being the One Plus One, with a 13 hour battery life, the iPhone 6 with a 10 hour battery life, and the Samsung galaxy S5, also with a 10 hour battery life. The average for phones is around 8 hours, though. With a GPS, however, you can have it in your car and not need to do anything relating to batteries for over a year, much like a Computer. Keep that in mind when using your phone as a GPS, because if it runs out of battery life, and you’re lost, it could be incredibly dangerous.

2. Pop-ups) While using a phone, pop-ups can occur while you’re trying to use it as a GPS. Just like on the Computer, pop ups can and will occur while you’re using your phone, they are mainly phone calls, but some other applications can cause a pop-up for your phone. Just imagine, you’re driving down the freeway, and all of a sudden you get a phone call and then miss an exit. You now have an extra 2 hours on your drive because of a phone call.

3. Viewing accessibility) Many of you who have used a phone as a GPS will know that it is pain painstakingly hard, and dangerous to glance at your phone to see where you are going. With a gps, however, some of them have 6-8 inch screens, and you can mount them on your windshield, which makes it very easy to quickly glance at and make sure you’re going the right way.

4. Why not own a map?) The reason you would want a GPS over a map is simple, with a map, you do not know where you are. Maps will work during the day for the most part, just find a landmark and you’re set. The one huge issue is that when it’s dark out you will have absolutely no idea where you are, and most likely won’t figure out for a while. With a GPS, it works 24/7 day or night.

5. Fifth and Final reason) If your phone happens to break, or if it needs to be serviced, you will be without a GPS, and therefore without a way to navigate. Just use a GPS device instead of a phone, then use the phone if your GPS has to be repaired for whatever reason. Side note – GPS computers are very strong and will usually never break.
What have we learned?) We have learned that a GPS is superior to any other device capable of navigation in every situation imaginable. So in short, buy yourself a GPS and never be lost again!
