GPS Systems that Magellan Would be Proud of

Aug 22, 2008
Ferdinand Magellan was the Portuguese explorer who was the first to sail around the world with his crew. He is the guy who also gave the Pacific Ocean its name. Magellan also had the unfortunate assignment in the early 1500s of finding a water route through South America. If he would have had a GPS device packed in his trunk along with his feather hat and tights, he could have been saved a lot of time and trouble. Today, we have an invention that would make Magellan proud, and one of the companies that manufacture these devices shares his name. The GPS systems made by Magellan are top of the line instruments that keep people all over the world from getting lost.

GPS systems are capable of pinpointing your location while you are driving in your car either on Route 66 cross-country or in the middle of the world s largest city. Units that are made to sit on the dashboard of cars usually plug in to the car s cigarette lighter adapter, and have brightly colored screens and tons of helpful functions to help you on your way. The handheld units are portable and even though they have a smaller screen than auto GPS units, they are durable and small enough to carry with you right in the palm of your hand, making them ideal for camping and hiking. Besides the auto and handheld GPS Magellan systems, there are four other categories of GPS instruments: Marine, PDA, laptop, and aviation. Coming in all different shapes, sizes, colors, textures, and purposes, Magellan makes a device that is perfect for everybody. The auto GPS devices can plot directions and help you find your way around downtown Miami. Marine units alert the user to the location of buoys, lighthouses, and even fish. PDA and handheld devices are portable and can go with you just about anywhere. Laptop units are just that, GPS laptops. Aviation units are, of course, used by pilots and aviators up in the skies.

Magellan is a company that has its headquarters in Santa Clara, California, and they also have European headquarters located in France. Enjoying exceptional revenue growth during the GPS revolution, the company is known worldwide for its award-winning variety of GPS navigational systems, consistently leading the industry in directional innovations. Magellan also stakes claim to the best-selling single frequency survey product line in the world. Some of the most popular award-winning models they have made are the Magellan Triton, the eXplorist, the Maestro, the Roadmate, and the NeverLost.
