Satellite Navigation Systems GPS – Global Positioning System Satellite Navigation Systems use GPS have 24 satellites named NAVSTAR orbiting the earth. The receiver listens for signals from these satellites. If it picks up signals from three or four different satellites it can calculate your exact position. It will then plot a route for you to follow. SATNAVs use touch screen technology for ease of use whilst driving They have VOICE commands so you dont have to look at the screen all the time
