    GNSS & GPS Modules

    GPS stands for Global Positioning System and it uses a constellation of between 24 and 32 earth orbit satellites that transmit precise radio signals, which allow GPS receivers to determine their current location, the time, and their velocity.

    What is a GPS module?

    The GPS module is a mountable receiver chip that can be attached to certain devices to give it GPS tracking and functions

    GPS has several advantages and disadvantages, but what are they?


    • The system is self-calibrating all you need to do is just turn on and use
    • Can be used in the field – doesn't require a laboratory or artificial environment
    • The technology is relatively small (typical GPS system is now no larger than a small mobile phone)
    • Works anywhere on Earth
    • Can give directions
    • Constantly evolving systems for greater accuracy and usability


    • Most systems will last only 8-12 hours before needing a battery recharge
    • A signal can be affected by large buildings

    How do GNSS & GPS Modules work?

    Through the use of the global positioning system, you are able to track your device via satellite which helps determine location, time and velocity on Earth
