What is GPS?
Developed by the U.S. government, the Global Positioning System (GPS for short) consists of 24 satellites in orbit above the Earth. GPS trackers receive signals from these satellites and use them to pinpoint and track the location of the device, generally within a few yards under optimal conditions. Trackers use multiple satellites to triangulate their position, so the more satellites the device can "see," the more accurate it will be in pinpointing its location.
