Something you don’t know about GPS unit

For the people who have made use of the GPS unit, the benefits and advantages are well known to them, especially when they are in an unfamiliar place. With the GPS navigation, they can also go on the fastest route, which means that you can save a considerable amount of gasoline, time and money in the long term.

Just we mention before the difference between the settings of the shortest route and the fastest route. There is no doubt that set the GPS unit to be fastest route is a sensible and logical choice. But for the adventurers, going on the unpredictable shorter route can add variety to the journey. But does it mean that I really have to go on the gravel, rough, rural or forestry road if I choose the shorter route? The answer is “No”. You may surprise that some GPS units can set to avoid gravel roads, toll roads and even motorways. Just before you head off for the destination, set the GPS unit properly according to your requirements and needs. Then follow the route worked out by the unit. It is very probably that you can be on the way which meets your requirements. If not, let the GPS recalculate the route.

In addition to the GPS Navigation which is installed in the dashboard, with the popularity of smart phones like iPhone, the car GPS in your pocket gradually come into your sight. It is clear that almost every smart phone features the GPS map-and-directions function. However, you may have some unpleasant experience with that function of the smart phone. The basic street-maps are not always oriented to the direction you are facing. Though the instructions along the road are clear, you have to stop the car to read the direction or ask someone else to help you read the guidance. In comparison with the in-car GPS unit, the disadvantage of the GPS map-and-directions function of the smart phone lies in the written directions, which makes the driving somewhat inconvenient.
Now let’s come to another topic which is about the exact mounting location of the GPS unit on the windscreen of the car. For other kinds of GPS Navigations, the position where they should be put and installed are clear, such as the headrest GPS monitor, in-dash car DVD Navigation etc. It can be understood by the name it goes. But how can you deal with the unit on the windscreen?

The New Zealand Transport Authority (NZTA) allows a "TV screen" to be visible to the driver "for the purpose of navigation". But for the safe drive, it is obvious to you that the windscreen of the car must be kept free of obstruction to allow sufficient view through it. You may be puzzled about this situation. How can you find a balance and the most suitable position on the windshield?

Take it easy! Install the GPS Navigation to the left of the steering wheel at the bottom of the windscreen. At times adjustments are needed for your unit based on the location of the charging cable.

It seems that most of the people have the habit of removing the GPS away from the windscreen and put it away under the seat or so after arriving in the destination. After the removal, circular rings on the windshield will be left by the suction cup, which can discourage the thieves by warning them of a GPS Navigation.
