Road Explorer™ 5 & 7 User Manual i About GPS The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a constellation of satellites that a GPS receiver uses to calculate geographical positions. To determine a position, data from at least three satellites is required. To determine elevation, the data from four or more satellites is required. Accuracy of the positioning varies from 10 feet to several hundred feet, depending on vehicle placement and the surrounding environment. Geographical terrain (such as mountains), man-made structures (such as highway overpasses, bridges, and tall buildings), as well as weather can interfere with the GPS signal. For best GPS reception, position the device and mount with a clear line of sight to the sky. Some vehicles may have a limited view of the sky due to metal sun shields or a metallized windshield coating. Map data includes the geographical coordinates for address locations and points of interest (POIs). With GPS reception, your device calculates a route to your selected location.
