An introduction to portable GPS devices

Portable GPS (global positioning system) satellite navigation devices are like having an expert navigator sitting beside you, giving you visual and spoken turn-by-turn directions all the way.  Most models are battery powered so can even be used when travelling by foot or public transport, and if needed can be charged by being plugged into your car cigarette lighter.

Portable Satellite Navigation can be known by a number of names, including  GPS, Handheld GPS, GPS Navigation, Nav or SatNav. Because they’re portable, they’re ideal if you want to use them in different vehicles. They can be purchased through major electrical retailers and specialist GPS stores.
