What is GNSS?

The GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) is a satellite-based navigation system made up of a network of 24 satellites placed into orbit by the U.S. Department of Defense.

GPS was originally intended for military applications, but in the 1980s, the government made the system available for civilian use.

GPS works in any weather conditions, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day.

There are no subscription fees or setup charges to use GPS.

About satellite signals

Your unit must acquire satellite signals to operate. If you are indoors, near tall buildings or trees, or in a parking garage, the unit cannot acquire satellite signal.

Acquiring satellite signals

Before the unit can determine your current position and navigate a route, you must do the following steps:

  1. Go outside to an area free from tall obstructions.
  2. Turn on the unit. Acquiring satellite signals can take a few minutes.
