Sure, you’ve seen the word being thrown around in casual conversation – “I just plugged it into my GPS and it told me how to get there” / “Why don’t you just use a GPS?”

But do you know what it actually stands for? Do you know what a GPS does? Luckily for you, we’ve put together a simple explanation to help you understand exactly what those three little letters stand for and what they mean for your daily life.

The first thing you need to know about GPS is that it stands for Global Positioning Software. The second is how it works, and what better way to figure out how something works than by watching a short video. Are we clever or what?

Feet up, get set, press play:

Keep-it-simpleDid that make sense?

Ok, let’s try explaining it like this – sometimes words make more sense:

Satellites send signals to devices. By subtracting the time the signal is received by your device from the the time the signal was sent, satellites are able to figure out how far away things are. That’s all you really need to know about how they work.
