Global Positioning Systems are becoming more common in a variety of devices from smartphones to in car AVL systems. GPS technology depends on a clear path from the receiver to the sky in order to be able to receive signals from as many satellites as possible.
Different GPS applications require a different number of satellites, but in general, the more satellites the receiver can detect, the greater the accuracy of the information the receiver provides. This makes it advantageous for the user to receive as strong a signal as possible. Buildings, certain terrains and even car window tinting, however, can hinder the signal from reaching the receiver efficiently. This makes it necessary to use an additional antenna to receive signals reliably.
Wireless Solutions offer a range of external, internal and combination GPS antennas that reliably facilitate accurate positioning data.
